Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 415/S. 198, the Stop Corporate Inversions Act. Corporations like to merge with other, foreign corporations in countries with lower corporate tax rates, and thus "become" "foreign" corporations and skimp on their tax obligations to our country. Right-wingers like to use that as an excuse to declare that our corporate income tax should be lower, as if conservatism somehow is about rewarding cheaters, but I digress. The Stop Corporate Inversions Act would flip that script, by declaring that any foreign corporation has to pay taxes in America like an American corporation if 25% of its business activities (measured as number of employees, aggregate employee compensation, or total corporate assets or income) occur in the United States. And from Tyco to Pfizer to Burger King, corporations don't leave America once they "leave America." So let's make them pay their share of the revenue from which we all benefit.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell the FCC to block the proposed Time-Warner/Charter merger, then Free Press still helps you do that. If this merger goes through, two corporations (Comcast and the newly-bloated Charter) would cover four out of every five homes in America -- almost entirely in markets where only one or the other even offers cable broadband service. And where we have monopolies, we have higher prices and lousy service, because monopolies don't have competition from those who might provide lower prices and better service. I'm sorry that sounds so obvious, but listen long enough to the big telecom corporation hacks speak and you suspect they really don't understand how things work -- they tell you mergers "create jobs" even though a deaf, dumb, and blind infant knows that mergers always destroy jobs. Of course they actually do understand how things work -- they just hope you don't, or aren't paying attention, so they can redistribute ever more of our wealth upward to themselves.
