Anytime we say that we don’t have enough money to do something good, this chart shows why that’s a lie. It depends on the definition of “we.” ”We” have plenty of money, much of it stashed overseas; “we” have just given in to the lobbying efforts of those who don’t want it taxed.
“We” can decide what we require of corporations in exchange for the benefits granted them by the limited liability, potential eternal life, ability concentrate poisons into appendages and then have them amputated, bankruptcy laws, and other goodies conferred by law.
“We” just choose not to — and “we” is in quotes because the limitations on our representative system mean that it’s not really “our” choice.
