Where's the patriotism of corporate leaders?

Success - Article sent! close

Citizens, 100 years ago the only people who paid income tax were the very rich and the most they paid was 8 percent. As a result, the majority of the people who worked for them made 20 cents an hour, which amounted to about $700 a year.

Now we have instances of the wealthy and the corporations they control moving their billions offshore to avoid paying taxes. Do they have no regard for the nation or the workers who helped them become successful?

If this is allowed to continue this great nation will be bankrupt in a very short time. These people enjoy the greatest benefits of the system. Why aren't they patriotic enough to support it?
