Your Penny Toward a Whopper

Corporations are NOT sympathetic figures. We know that. YOU know that.

 

But you also know that YOUR fate is tied with THEIR fate. THEIR taxes are YOUR taxes.

 

That's why I told Congress to get rid of corporate income taxes using DownsizeDC.or’g campaign

 

Please do the same. You may borrow from or copy this letter:

 

I'm angered that Burger King has fled to Canada as a tax shelter.

 

But I'm not angered at Burger King, which has only done what it thinks is best for its shareholders.

 

I am, rather, angered at YOU.

 

It isn't Burger King that created the HIGHEST CORPORATE INCOME TAX in the world. YOU did that.

 

And I DO NOT CONSENT!

 

Why should even a PENNY toward a Whopper go to:

 

* tear-gassing peaceful protesters in Ferguson?

* funding ALL sides in a Middle East war?

* creating other havoc you impose?  

 

YOUR policies give corporations the INCENTIVE to move away!

 

Why not, instead, bring jobs home? Abolishing corporate income taxes would…

 

* ATTRACT more companies

* EMPLOY more people

 

This is COMMON SENSE. But your policy is a real whopper.

 

Do the right thing. Represent ME. And…

 

ABOLISH CORPORATE INCOME TAXES!
