for my friend Lou


For some reason you believe the poor should pay some form of tax while the rich should rape and pillage America’s financial tax system.  To answer your question, no taxes on the first $35,000 and a steep graduated tax after that.  We now have the largest inequality between the 1% and the bottom 99% in the history of the world. America is now a 3rd world country. We are a country that has over 45 million children go to bed hungry every night.  Our bridges and highways are a wreck. Our schools and health care is in shambles. The national debt has increased by over 20% since the tax cuts for the wealthy was implemented by Trump.  America is in ruins and it’s the greed of 1% in the form of lowered taxes and other financial benefits that is leading American down the pathway of destruction. Here are two books for you to read that can be found at the library. Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty and the Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein.
