The tax code is too complicated with too many loop holes. Everyone should pay their fair share, from +1B companies to the welfare queens sitting at home watching trial attorney TV commericals all day. Taxes need to be low to encourage business growth, with corresponding small gov spending. FJB

Agreed. The wealthier the business/person is, they need to pay more than the guy struggling from paycheck to paycheck

All taxes are passed on down to the customers, hurting the poorest people the most, and not affecting the businesses at all.

Increasing taxes always has negative results. It never hits its intended target. It will only impact people who are already struggling. Corporations do NOT pay taxes. Their customers do. It is ALWAYS passed on to the consumer.

They will put more people out of work with businesses looking for a way to save money. And it will affect income on the people. The Government is creating more inflation rather than decreasing inflation for their inflationary spending.

The “wealthy” do not pay taxes. A good business puts it expenses back onto the customers. We, the proles, pay taxes for the wealthy. Also, the “wealthy” don’t take salaries. The company the own provides for them, and they get tax breaks. If you make less than $100,000,000.00, you done.

I am more worried about being tracked and spied on by my cell phone. Save some of your COVID masks, they are worthless at preventing COVID but might help protect you against facial recognition surveillance at the upcoming anti-gov protests. Leave your phone at home when going to protests.

Because we need it to assist with catching the criminals to keep our community safer. Witnesses are afraid to come forward, and the police are short handed.

The govt has facial recognition of all the domestic terrorists in Portland Or. but won't prosecute them, but will go after innocent mothers at school board meetings. Go figure, you may be the next one arrested. Your own words from three months ago. "Privacy concerns and government over reach!" LGB

It hurts everyone who has an IRA or a 401K, and everyone who works for a living.
