“The Other 98%” Update

The guys I mentioned from Facebook the other day, The Other 98%, still don’t have a Wikipeida entry. But I did find this.

Marco Ceglie

”Marco Ceglie (b. 1973 in Livingston, New Jersey) is an American writer, producer, and freelance strategic media and messaging consultant.
He most recently co-founded the advocacy group The Other 98%, which made waves as an alternative to the Tea Party during their April 15, 2010 “anti-tax” rallies in Washington D.C. Ceglie countered the Tea Party again on August 28th, 2010, with his Celebrate The Dream project, which constructed a forty-foot art installation by the artist Michael Murphy. The exhibit honored Dr. Martin Luther King’s fight for social justice on the 47th anniversary of King’s “I have a dream” speech while countering Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial.”

It’s a somewhat lengthy entry for those that are interested. But any guy that helps create this video can’t be all bad.

Remember, it was Barack Obama who named Jeffery Immelt (the CEO of GE) to head his jobs council. This is the same GE that made 14.2 billion in 2010 and paid no taxes.

As years go by, corporations structure themselves to take advantage of every special tax credit and deduction that they can find. That's because Washington tries to manipulate the economy to move it in the direction they want according to their politics.

Corporations have found that they can make more money by hiring people to lobby Congress than do real work. The solution is to rewrite the corporate tax code so that it fits on one sheet of paper, eliminating deductions that try to steer corporate America in any particular business direction.
