Not to be argumentative but as a small business myself, I am arguably more impacted by the influence of taxes (my business is far more likely to fail compared to that of a top 500 company) than a larger company. I try to write as much I can legally speaking off on my taxes and yet I still pay taxes at the end of the day. So how does a top 500 company avoid paying any tax? The tax laws are effectively setup to help bigger companies succeed over smaller ones. Does this not create an anti-competitive climate? At the very least, all businesses should face the same burden of the law.""A fireman, a teacher paying 22% — Amazon and 90 other major corporations paying zero in federal taxes? I'm going to put an end to that," he said."
Should we insinuate that Amazon employees don't pay taxes then? No we shouldn't, because they do. Comparing an individual (specifically in a role that is politically charged to use) to an entire corporation on tax dues is never a fair comparison. Teachers, firemen, AND Amazon line workers all pay their respective taxes. Nice try there, bud.
If you're going to make comparisons, at least be accurate about it, and try not to be so obvious about your sleight of hand.
Come on man...
