To save our culture and civilization, our tax laws must be updated. We cannot allow industrial robots and computers to take good jobs away, and still have tax laws of the industrial age, the 20th century.
Prices, especially on manufactured goods, should be coming down instead of rising. The piece work cost of each product being made by industrial robots and computers is microscopic, when compared to human labor costs of the 20th century. Corporations do not pay overtime, pensions, welfare, medicare nor unemployment taxes on them. This decreases income to the government, and widens the gap between the excessively greedy rich and the rest of us.
The excessively greedy, who do not create jobs, should be paying higher taxes as more and more people are forced into lower-paying jobs. Our government, also has to repair, replace and modernize our infrastructure while having a balanced budget.
