August 24, 2017 | In the upcoming tax debate, lobbyists and special-interest groups are pushing for tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and corporations, often using misleading claims. This new series sets the record straight and is intended to serve as a resource to the media, policymakers, and members of the public.

Read these user-friendly columns on the major issues surrounding the tax system:

  • The ‘Trump Loophole’ Would Benefit Millionaires, Not Small Businesses

President Trump's and House Republicans' proposed "small-business" tax cut would create a new loophole for millionaires—including Wall Street financiers, lobbyists, lawyers, and wealthy business owners like Trump—while doing little or nothing for real small businesses.

  • Giving Away Corporate Tax Cuts Is Not How to Make the United States More Competitive

American competitiveness would be better served by ensuring that U.S. corporations pay their fair share of taxes and investing those revenues in education, infrastructure, and other public investments that make America a desirable place to do business.

  • Trickle-Down Tax Cuts Don’t Create Jobs

Rather than boosting the economy, tax cuts for the rich widen inequality, harm the middle class, and harm the economy in the long run.

  • Even a country as prone to bad judgments as we had become could never be stupid enough, perverse enough, addled enough, self-destructive enough to put a man like Donald Trump in its highest office. No way.

September 16, 2017 | For lots of people like me, the world has been turned on its head over the last few years. In fact, the whole damn century thus far has been pretty puzzling.

We started out by electing the village idiot as our leader, a rich man’s kid who had demonstrated little in the way of intelligence or competence in anything he’d ever done up to that point. Then we re-elected him despite the fact that he had, in his first term, invaded the wrong country in response to a big terror attack he’d neglected to prevent, having been on vacation the entire month preceding those assaults on New York and the Pentagon.

12 August 2017 | In the 24 hours since U.S. President Donald Trump said Washington is exploring “many options regarding Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary”, the global community has continued to condemn his comments.

In a teleSUR exclusive, the U.S. intellectual Noam Chomsky said the remarks were "shocking and dangerous."

  • The reality of Venezuela complex, and if some of the complexity of the issues and struggles of a nation undergoing rapid social change had made it into the corporate media in this country, then there would be no need to spend so much energy giving the "other side" of the story, as I do here. But that's not how the corporate media works, so an issue like this is necessary.
