Taxation

Taxation

It is our patriotic duty to pay for the government to provide services that cannot be based on a for-profit model. Government must work for all people and in order to do that, its programs must be fully funded. There is no need for austerity measures in the current economy. By all paying their fair share of taxes we can fund those programs that are most important to people’s lives. Taxes should be simple and based on progressive rates. We cannot trust in a system that expects the wealthy to trickle down their earnings to the lower classes. Fair, progressive tax rates reflect the cost of earning wealth in a free country with ample opportunities to succeed. We can have a lower overall corporate tax rate but eliminate every loophole and subsidy. There should be no more corporate welfare.
