ESSENTIAL SERVICES
this CV business has brought to light the concept of "ESSENTIAL SERVICES" necessary to a CIVILIZED society and so causes me to question why are our taxes NOT being used to SERVE the People's Needs? Is it because BIG GOV republiCON politicians are enjoying the GOOD LIFE private jet-setting here and there while calling the 'Bernies and YangGangs' a bunch of Commies?


so why am I paying OUT-of-POCKET for TRASH COLLECTION, ELECTRICITY, WATER, and other such ESSENTIAL SERVICES of CIVILIZED SOCIETY while republiCON politicians private-jetsetting to their non-PROFIT socials tell me that 'Big Gov' is BAD?

"Joe Biden rips into Amazon, says the company 'should start paying their taxes'


Biden's statements echo sentiments from Republicans and Democrats: Both Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a former Democratic candidate for president, and President Donald Trump have called out Amazon in the past.


Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden ripped into Amazon Friday morning, echoing President Donald Trump's sentiment that Amazon should be paying more in taxes.


"I think Amazon should start paying their taxes," Biden said. "I don't think any company, I don't give a damn how big they are, the Lord Almighty, should absolutely be in a position where they pay no tax and make billions and billions and billions of dollars."-----

Twice as many companies paying zero taxes under Trump tax plan
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. In its first year, the number of companies paying no taxes went from 30 to 60.


At least 60 companies reported that their 2018 federal tax rates amounted to effectively zero, or even less than zero, on income earned on U.S. operations, according to an analysis released today by the Washington, D.C.-based think tank, the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. The number is more than twice as many as ITEP found roughly, per year, on average in an earlier, multi-year analysis before the new tax law went into effect.

Among them are household names like technology giant Amazon.com Inc.------

Taxes are too damned high. Democrats want to increase them while spending more on pork barrel projects.

^as the republiCONS scare the peasantry with BIG GOV boogyman talk while enjoying the GOOD LIFE funded by taxing the peasants as the Bernies, Yangs, & AOCs at least try to raised the peasant standard of living a bit.


it's very simple. The MORE your tax dollars are used for YOU to provide ESSENTIAL SERVICES then the more $$$ you have to save/invest to improve your position or squander on vacations and hobbies like a GUN$ collection

Get rid of taxes and make me pay for the essential services that I use, and I'd be paying a lot less.

RE: ESSENTIAL SERVICES
Belgium has lots of taxes and essential services too. It also has the highest deaths per capita from Covid in the world. And not even by a small margin either.

How come the happiest countries are white countries, like Denmark?

This is why I wish the US would pull out of NATO. Then all of those Euro countries would have to pony up a lot more money for their own defense. Right now they can do things like this because they don't have to spend a lot on defense.
