  1. I found this article written by ExxonMobile (http://www.exxonmobilperspectives.com/2011/04/28/exxonmobil-earnings-the-real-story-you-wont-hear-in-washington/) that claims that they pay too much in taxes, they show a graph of their finances and show that they paid $26.2 bill in taxes in the first 3 months of 2011, but that’s only 23% of total revenue. I pay about 40% in taxes to the local, state and federal government, and then I pay for the taxes on businesses because companies pass on the taxes to their customers. In the end the fact that businesses pay taxes is an illusion that hides the fact that consumers pay for 100% of taxes.

    That’s my new revelation: consumers pay for all taxes.

    Why tax businesses then? To discourage their success and reward other companies?
