The best possible product for the least possible cost.

A tax still requires them to mark it up...which should ideally be avoided.

Come on, man. You know this stuff.

That’s ridiculous. Were you flown to your own private hospital by helicopter to the Maldives and served Crystal for every contraction?

They got the reservations and the licenses for the casinos.

A tax break should require them to mark it down.

Don't you agree?

No, I don't agree with your...loaded...question.

A successful business makes money from money.

If a tax cut were to come to my business, I would only cut prices if my marketing research showed I needed to in order to remain competitive.

Otherwise I would take the savings and allocate them to something that would lead to the money making more money.

Money that isn't making money is actually losing money due to inflation.

What I know comes from 20 years in corporate life watching people get really inventive in ways they can screw both the customer and the employee. You're correct that corporate taxes are passed along to the consumer. @NextTimeAround is also right that corporate tax breaks are never passed along to either the consumer nor to the employee.

How's about we stop subsidizing corporations, they pay what they owe, and if they pass the cost along TOO much, I as the consumer just stop buying their goods and services? They can either suck it up and pay their share, and then they can conduct business fairly or they can go out of business while one of their competitors undercuts them.

I'm good with capitalism. I'm not ok with unfettered capitalism. We tried that already and it gave us an age where companies employed Pinkertons to keep employees in line and where labor organizers were murdered or imprisoned for their troubles.

27% considering reparations is hardly a serious consideration.

From whom are ‘they’ going to demand reparations? Are you thinking about all those African American slaves that came over from Ireland, England and Germany, took over everyone else’s business and now demand reparations?

One of the hospitals in Boston, Massachusetts General, is trying to get permission to build a 450 private room building comprised of two connected towers.
The cost? Just over a billion dollars.
I think the most outrageous thing we were charged for was not the fifteen bucks for two Tylenol, but the eight bucks for the tiny plastic cup that they were handed to my wife in.
Not to mention the twelve bucks for an individual pack of Kleenex.

When someone says it’s not the money it’s the principle,it’s always the money.

Unacceptable. Meanwhile.....home births must be soaring! I read about a mother performing C-section on herself (successfully!) with a kitchen knife...This must be why. ****ing Kleenex.
