A Middle-Class Tax Revolt? You Bet!

A Middle-Class Tax Revolt? You Bet!

0
(Thomas Magstadt) What follows is inspired by two recent articles that everybody who’s not in the 1% – and I do mean, everybody – should read. One these two must-read articles (“For the Highest Paid CEOs, the Party Goes On”) appeared in a wide-circulation U.S. newspaper right-wing conservatives routinely lampoon for having a liberal bias.

The other one (“The great distortion”) appeared in a major British news journal with a steadfast commitment to so-called free-market principles. Considered separately they amount to a damning case against corporate self-policing in the one case and publicly-subsidized borrowing in the other. Taken together, they point to a glaring fact even many severe critics of growing economic inequality in U.S. society fail to see, namely that extreme income inequality is actually financed by millions of middle-class taxpayers.

That’s right, folks, taxpayers are footing the bill for the obscene amounts of lucre the CEOs see fit to pay themselves every year. In today’s rigged economy, the superrich do not get where they are because of market forces but, instead, because of deliberate government action to fund massive corporate welfare programs masked by a Byzantine tax code only corporate lawyers and lobbyists understand.

Here’s how it works. To quote The Economist:

US Income Tax is Illegal, IRS is Illegal

LEGALLY STOP PAYING TAXES AND YOU CAN STOP THE GENOCIDE NOW !
