US53 - Make Corporations Pay For Personhood Privileges
I think we should uncap social security, and since corporations are now people they should pay in at the same rate we all do. Medicare should also be on them, taxed as we are. They want the rights of a citizen, let them pay like one too. And since you and I do not get subsidized there is no reason for them to be subsidized. Oil, Cotton, Agribiusiness, all those subsidies need to be cut.
I think its pretty much self explanatory, they want to be people, let them pay like people. No free lunch as they would say.
A flat tax is a regressive tax like a sales tax. It takes a larger proportion of poor people's income than it does of rich people's. For this reason, taxes must be graduated according to income level and/or worth.
And regarding the counterargument that taxes are theft: how would s/he handle social services like police and fire? How about building and repairing roads and bridges? Who would pay for our courts and judges? And that's just a start.
I don't think corporations are people, so I prefer the solution of eliminating (or limiting) corporate personhood.
