Will you add your name to support my new plan for a Real Corporate Profits Tax?

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

You probably pay more in federal income taxes than some of America’s biggest, most profitable corporations. Let’s make this year the last year any company with massive profits pays zero federal taxes.
Warren for President

It’s almost Tax Day, and chances are you’ll be paying federal taxes this year.

Maybe it’s a lot, maybe it’s a little. But chances are you’ll be kicking in something for our military, for medical research, for highways and bridges — the kinds of investments our federal government makes to defend our country and strengthen our economy.

Well, guess what? You will be paying more for running the federal government than a bunch of big American corporations that made billions of dollars in profits last year. Take Amazon: $10 billion in profits, zero in federal corporate income taxes. Or Occidental Petroleum: $4.1 billion in profits, zero in federal corporate income taxes.

In fact, year after year, some of the biggest corporations in the country make huge profits but pay zero federal corporate income taxes on those profits. This isn’t right, and we need structural change to fix it.

That’s why I’m proposing a big new idea: the Real Corporate Profits Tax. It will make our biggest and most profitable corporations pay their fair share and ensure that none of them can ever make billions and pay zero taxes again.

Sign our petition if you support our new plan, and let’s make it happen.
