There's been a lot of hoopla lately about how US corporations don't pay their fair share in corporate taxes, i.e., Exxon last year and this new article on GE. I would like to remind you that corporate taxes do not hurt the corporations; rather, they hurt us the consumers. Why? Because corporations pass these costs thru to us in the form of higher prices for goods and services. So before you all start bitching about corporate taxation or the lack thereof, remember that you will be paying for all of it. And if you work for a large corporation, remember who pays for the majority of your luxurious health care plans before you start bitching about your employer's tax level. Bitches.
Value Added Tax or VAT is in discussions now. Do you really want anything like that? I would think not.
If you want to bitch about people not paying taxes, perhaps you should start here.
