Marianne Williamson on Corporations
Author & Democratic Presidential Challenger
TWO CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Kirsten Gillibrand; Kamala Harris.
Some candidates, such as Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and author Marianne Williamson, say they want to get rid of the 2017 cut entirely.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand supports a 0.1% tax on the sale of stocks, bonds and derivatives. Author Marianne Williamson wants to eliminate preferential tax treatment of exchange traded funds.

Williamson has put forward a four-step plan to reduce income inequality. It includes providing cash relief through a universal basic income; creating jobs through Green New Deal legislation; boosting government funding for early education and caregiving; and introducing a universal savings program. Williamson has proposed paying for the plan by rolling back tax cuts to the wealthy and big businesses.
Moneyed interests control the political process, routinely pouring so many millions of dollars into so many political campaigns as to have completely corrupted the process. This is not a secret anymore. The health and well-being of corporate structures are placed before the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
Gargantuan economic concerns, whose financial interests are unabashedly placed ahead of the collective good, pour through the halls of our government like lava. We do not spend billions upon billions of dollars more to support certain industries than to support our children for any other reason than that organized business interests can afford highly paid lobbyists to make it happen, in both legal and illegal ways. The influence of money on the political process is a fast-growing cancer threatening to destroy our democracy.
