After 2020 Loss, Trump's Tax Cuts Endure As Corporations Duck U.S. Debts | The Beat With Ari Melber 1


Many profitable corporations pay no federal taxes at all, even as so many Americans struggle in the pandemic. Congress is considering some reform, but MSNBC’s Ari Melber documents how Congress is debating based on terms defined by the Trump-era cuts and Reagan-era corporate rates — despite Democrats winning back both elected branches of government. Melber highlights how companies like Nike and FedEx pay no taxes and benefit from policies shaped through a campaign finance system that benefits corporations

    Somewhere, there is some dude who lives in a trailer who is furious about Biden’s plan to tax the ultra rich.

      @Juan Santos That is all part of the plan, the day America went in to lockdown, I saw the black/green horse coming sometime in the future. I saw a days wage will equal a meal. Now I prepped for this. However I get the sales ads each week from all the groceries stores. Last week, I got 15 pork sandwiches from the dollar store. It was 2 for $1.00 SpaghettiOs last week. 39 cent store brand Mac n Cheese, it was $2.49 for a massive Ice tee mix. I will never buy a 12 pack of Soda for the $6.89 price. I will get the 3 for 10 or 4 for 12 or the 24 packs for $8 or $9 a pop. Pasta when it is .88 cents and so forth. Buy one get one free or buy $15.00 worth of stuff and get $5.00 off. Bread I only buy when it is buy one get one and same with English muffins.

    • I don’t think you’ve used somewhere correctly in this case. I think there should be a word for all the wheres.

      @The Man With No Name prices started going up 3 years ago on most foods especially aluminum beverages because of the trade war, I remember because up until late last year I use to still drink. And you should try shopping at a Kruger branch, aldi, and Wal-Mart. They all have way way way better prices than the dollar store

    Ari — you’ve done a great job once again explaining a complicated issue… but if the receiving end isn’t able or willing to absorb/perceive, then I’m afraid it’s wasted. The ignorant have the upper hand… keep going though, and thanks!

    These corporations are “citizens” when it comes to political campaigns but some kind of other entity when it comes to paying taxes. It’s time for “citizen’s united” to be remedied by congress. We know they won’t because the same people who would benefit from the companies donations are the ones we would need to change it.
