  •  Make Corporations Pay Their Fair Share (none)
    This is just one plank in a platform of having corporations pay their fair share. One reason taxes are so high is because government is saddled with paying for what corporations should, but won't. When a corporation doesn't pay a living wage they are not paying their fair share to their. To cover this, we have all manner of governmental programs for the working poor.

    Republicans talk about cutting taxes as if they are too high. If you can't pay your taxes, either the taxes are too high or the wages are too low. Guess what? Taxes are not too high. Wages are too low.

    Every time someone talks about cutting taxes or tax relief that should be a signal to talk about wages, salaries and compensation in general. We should always make this point. If you are struggling to pay taxes, you aren't earning enough money. Only people who are being underpaid have a problem paying their taxes.

    The idea of cutting taxes should always be linked in the voters' minds to how much they deserve to be paid more and how much their company is screwing them.
