Inequality is out of control. Corporate profits are way up, corporate taxes are way down https://goo.gl/jzdByi
Corporate Personhood which has existed in the United States in some form since 1819 which has been bolstered by a misreading of the 14th Amendment “Persons”, was what allowed Neo-Liberalism *Trickle-Down Economics* to permeate American Society to such an extent and bring on all the nasty anti-social by products of this synthetic economic doctrine.
Therefore, a Constitutional Amendment is needed to abolish once and for All the notion of “Corporate Personhood” in regards to fictional entities created by Legislation having any rights or priviliges under the US Constitution
The 28th Amendment, We The People Amendment
House Joint Resolution 48 introduced January 30, 2017

The privileges of artificial entities shall be determined by the People, through Federal, State, or local law, and shall not be construed to be inherent or inalienable.
Section 2. [Money is Not Free Speech]
Federal, State, and local government shall regulate, limit, or prohibit contributions and expenditures, including a candidate’s own contributions and expenditures, to ensure that all citizens, regardless of their economic status, have access to the political process, and that no person gains, as a result of their money, substantially more access or ability to influence in any way the election of any candidate for public office or any ballot measure.

The judiciary shall not construe the spending of money to influence elections to be speech under the First Amendment.
Donald Trump’s tax plan is an absolute disaster. His plan to slash the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent would provide a $2.4 trillion tax break to corporations, at a time when 1 out of 5 large, profitable corporations don’t pay a nickel in federal income taxes. No, Donald Trump, we will not give even more tax breaks to multi-billion corporations while children in America are going hungry and veterans are sleeping out on the streets.
We are demanding that they stop profiteering off the suffering of inmigrant families #MayDay2017 #BackersOfHate #NoBanNoWallNoRaids
So President Trump is proposing that the Corporate Tax Rate be lowered to the lowest rate in the History of the United States, and also wants a modest cut in the Income Tax Rate.
He also wants Public-Private Partnerships for Infastructure, so what that means is the Corporations and Billionaires will get massive increases in Wealth, they can then spend that newly aquired money on so-called Infastructure, and put toll booths on it so people can pay for it 100 times over all while enriching the Corporations and Billionaires!.
Good work if you can get it!.

Lawmakers considering the health care legislation have hauled in cash from the industries fighting the measure.
