State of Tennessee secondary Archives: on Corporations


Terry Adams: Fair tax system without loopholes for corporations & wealthy

If you have been feeling like the game is rigged, like you can't get ahead no matter how hard you work, like the deck is stacked against you, you are right. When all the wealth goes to the top 10%, and increasingly the top 1%, the middle-class does not have money to buy things, demand for goods and services goes down, tax revenues go down, meaning investments in education go down, and so on into an economic death spiral.

What should we do? Well, we don't need some kind of Robin Hood economic policy, we just need a fair economic policy that works for everyone. We need a fair tax system without loopholes for corporations and the wealthy. We need Wall Street reform. We need to make intelligent investments in public education, the great equalizer in our country. We need to raise the minimum wage. And we need to get the billionaires, corporations, and special interests money out of politics.
