http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_Effective_Corporate_Tax_Rate_1947-2011_v2.jpg

the corporation pays 15-25%, and then the shareholder pays another 15-45% making the true corporate tax rate 30-70% depending on how it's structured. it's intellectually bankrupt to only count part of the tab. do you really like doublespeak that much that you need it to try and make a point?


you do know you can't add percentages like that, right?

if I take 25% out and then another 25%, that doesn't equal 50%.

100 - 25 = 75.

75 - 1/4*75 ~ 56.
