    Some of our Republican friends like to remind us that approx. 41% of America's working poor don't pay any taxes.


    I have to wonder, would we rather exact a tax from these 41% as apposed to having these 30 Co's who can afford to, pay at least a minimum tax ?

    Which group would or should pay more ?

    These 30 are tax free because Corp. Lobby's bought them legislation that prefers and serves them and their bottom lines above the good of the country in which they do business. This is yet another reason for the OWS protests.
