Well that's becaus they lobbied to get rid of Citizens United successfully
get rid of that and we would be good
Yeah, you wonder why that is? Because the corporations don't pay shit! You should not be paying nearly that much. None of us should be. But corporations that generate billions in revenue every year are somehow no different than us? Fuck that. That's corporatist bullshit.
Squid are you still fucking with that guy?
nah he got fucked
No, Squid... they already GOT rid of Citizens United. By doing that, getting rid of it, it ensured that corporations can do whatever they want. When that law came down, it became legal for all intents and purposes to purchase Congress
Companies are also treated as a person
they should not be treated as people
Citizens United was a law that basically regulated how much corporations could donate to campaigns. It also regulated campaign finance in general.
What they did was they took it to the supreme court and claimed that the law violated 1st amendment rights for companies... except that companies aren't people. But they did it anyway. Now, companies can donate pretty much as much as they like without oversight or regulation to whoever they want. In essence, they own Congress
Between 1970 and 2000, they used lobbyists to get rid of all the regulation on financial institutions which led to the 2008 great recession
They got rid of the marginal corporate tax rate we had in the 50s and 60s which ensured that corporations would always pay more than people in taxes
They destroyed unions, and offshored jobs
Alright question boys
The corporations are no different than the government
unions are some commie shit tbh
They used to work really well
