Aren’t we just, though!
They’ll also talk about “taxing corporations” though anyone who gives it 30 seconds’ thought realizes that “corporate taxes” are simply passed on to the consumer. Most people don’t give it that much thought, and it sounds good- punish those big bad corporations!
Over the years I’ve had conversations with numerous people where I have pointed out a couple of things: one, corporations HAVE to make profits to stay in business (would you work for free?) and two, corporations don’t pay taxes, they pass those costs along (see my first point).
Watching the light dawn and people’s expressions change when they grasp the truth is gratifying!
