An investigation? Is that stupid or what? They are putting a tax on tech giants doing business in their country. Probably the investigation should be about why we aren't doing the same thing.

""The digital services tax that France and other European countries are pursuing is clearly protectionist and unfairly targets American companies in a way that will cost US jobs and harm American workers," they said in a joint statement."

Wow, a Dem is also agreeing to this? Liberals are trying to destroy America so it's quite a surprise. Case in point..."Probably the investigation should be about why we aren't doing the same thing."

Too many Libs still live in a dream world where companies eat new costs instead of pushing them down to the consumer. But hey, if you want to make everyone have to pay more money, that's your opinion. Just remember, that will also apply to non-white people, including illegal immigrants. Won't that cause AOC to say that illegals are now also having to live in virtual concentration camps where online goods cost more?

No that's not True. What we believe is that all of the costs involved in making widgets including the use of the commons should be bourne by the consumers who buy widgets rather than giving the company a tax break so MY taxes can keep YOUR widget prices lower.

We also believe that employers should be responsible for their employees. That's why we want a living wage instead of again using MY tax dollars to give foodstamps and cash assistance to your employees because you don't want to "pass the cost onto consumers" So instead you pass the cost onto people who are NOT consumers of your products

Agreed 100%.

The corporations free ride ends 2020. The parasitic scum need to pay, but I don't expect corporate Democrats to be of any use. Progressives must lead this dance, imo.
