    Bill Clinton was politically speaking a minority president 6 of the 8 years he was president. Bush was a majority president 6 out of 8 years and Obama was political minority president 6 out of 8 years. Yes, it did happen during the first two years of the Clinton administration but the GOP had plenty of opportunity to correct this matter but chose not to.

    Whatever they corrected would have still had to be signed by Clinton.

    Because the GOP controlled congress thought that it was a good deal too.

    Capitalism doesn't create our current tax code; corruption does.

    Would you support a flat tax, Ricky? Would make this all so much simpler...

    He’ll get back to you when he finds out from Ralph Nader and Noam Chomsky what he should think.

    Amazon lost money (on paper) for years and can carry those losses to offset future gains. Its how the tax codes are written. Nothing unique or unusual about Amazon.

    im not sure i dont think so. look up david cay johnston, michael hudson, etc.

    i agree with you that im all in favor of a simple and just tax system because the tax system redistributes money which the economy initially distributes inefficiently.

    a complicated tax system means people are spending more money on tax accountants and wasting more time trying to do their taxes which is another inefficiency.

    the people who work in these corporations are rewarded with bonuses based on how much money they can avoid in paying taxes. this example i speak of happened specifically at GE i believe, who owns msnbc so called liberal media.
