Reader Opinion: Tax reform

While Congress is debating about what kind of tax reform bill to pass, large, multi-national corporations are cheating the American taxpayers by not paying taxes.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists did an international examination into "the offshore activities of some of the world's most powerful people and companies." It exposed a number of multinational corporations operating offshore companies in order to avoid tax liabilities and to conceal their wealth. Among them are Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Uber, Disney, Nike, Walmart, McDonald's and Yahoo.

They also exposed over 120 top political and world leaders, including Queen Elizabeth, a number of major donors to Donald Trump's administration, current U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and a number of top Democrat donors.

Will any kind of tax reform include them? More than likely, the elite is controlling everything. So, what does the common man do? We could boycott the corporations.
