Richard Carmona on Corporations

 


Tax cuts for corporations are wrong & unconscionable

The biggest victim of the recent recession and 2008 financial crisis has been our middle class. In Washington, extreme ideology and hyper partisanship cause some to push for tax increases on working families, while protecting tax cuts for corporations and special interests--that's not only wrong, it's unconscionable.

We need to rebuild our engine of economic opportunity not just because it's the right thing to do, but because America is at its strongest when it is powered by a vibrant middle class. A vibrant middle class provides an infrastructure of opportunity for all Americans: good paying jobs, educational advancement and above all else, hope and economic security for future generations.

The first step we can take is to stop wasteful spending and ensure that tax dollars are being used smartly and efficiently. And before we even discuss cutting benefits or raising taxes, we should ensure that we all pay our fair share in taxes, including corporations that dodge their tax responsibilities.
