    Don't hate the players, hate the game.
    It'd be foolish to pay taxes if the whole economy is set up so that you don't have to pay any.

      My bad. I understood your comment as you saying that during the Democratic primaries, people voted for Hillary over Bernie.

      That's actually right, that's what I said. And it's true.
      It was a wrong choice in my opinion, and of course there was fraud within the DNC to project Hillary as the defacto candidate and arrange extra limelight for her in the media, and also manipulating polls. But whatever it was, it resulted in people actually consciously choosing Hillary over Bernie in the primaries.

      Although the two items you suggested to use the money may be a good use of the money, I don't believe that is how our government works.

      1. uninsured get basic healthcare, would have to be proposed, pass through both sides of congress, then signed by the president. Likely dead on arrival, which can be seen by the dismanting of Obamacare.

      2. repair Flint infrastructure (clean water). It was their own local governments misspending of tax payer money and switching water sources that brought their crisis.

      Conclusion: Paying addition taxes than needed does not automatically send the money to worthy causes.

      We are able to use emergency money and spend 8billion as an "emergency" on a wall, but the residents of flint have suffered for many years.

      LOL. You are correct. The American government doesn't work that way. The things I'm talking about is how our government is *supposed* to work.

      If our government worked the way it's supposed to, Flint (and all other parts of America with Third World conditions) would have been repaired already.

      To be fair, Trump didn’t write the tax code. Amazon and other big corporations benefitted hugely on taxes even in the previous years too. Trump did make a lot of his typical empty promises of ending all of that. Sigh!

    Absolutely - Amazon or anyone else that benefits isn’t at fault as long as they played by the rules.

    They’re carrying forward losses from years ago. It’s not great, but it’s legal.

      No but he’s fairly critical of Trump. (Disclaimer: I dislike both)

    It really doesn’t make sense for corporations to pay taxes in the first place IMO.

    It will be interesting to see data on how much these companies have paid lobbyists to push for this in DC.
