    Oh, man. Returning the corporate rate back to 35%? What about all those additional stock buybacks they had planned? And they’re gonna have to re-hire the accountants who figure out how to get their actual tax rate much lower than 35%!

    Over 800 billion most coming from tax cuts were spent last year on buybacks.Remember all the talk about how companies would use the tax savings on R&D and expansion? Cap ex and R&D budgets are still about the same ,simply adjusted a bit for inflation. More importantly buybacks are what drove the market last year . They're down some this year with expectations of a recession next year is being given as the reason for reduced purchases.

    that wont be enough. Bernie at least makes an honest argument.

    he agree's everyones taxes will go up but justifies it by saying you will not be paying any health care premiums.

    But a spending/taxing bill like that will require DemWits in charge of Prez, Senate and House.
    Ain’t gonna happen.
