Duh!
Where do you think that came from in the first place?

TAXPAYERS.
It should only go to TAXPAYERS, ie, people with jobs.

You do realize that if a company is "allowed" to keep some of its own money that it earned, that is not "tax money"?

Hey Stinks

Those who can pass a drug test soon can find work, SOL if you can't.

We can let everybody keep every last penny they earned. And to hell with the non-earners/needy.

Is that the kind of country we are supposed to be striving for? Is that what "Make America Great Again" is supposed to mean?

Again, the attitude that the government is entitled to the money, and decides out of the largess of the rulers to let people "keep" some of what they earned.

I don't know what "Make America Great Again" is supposed to mean.

I do know that the less of a company's money the government takes, the more jobs that company can create. Some of us have the quaint idea that a company using its money to create jobs is more productive and more valuable to society than the government redistributing that money according to the outcomes that it deems fit and proper.
