A fair number of dems have talked big when it came to taxing the wealthy, and then failed to walk the walk when they've gotten in office, tho. Dems also have a habit of imposing mountains of largely meaningless fines and restrictions on small businesses as well, which suffocates new growth. I think we end up largely in the same place.
Personally, i think we should hold billion-dollar corporations to a different, much harsher standard than we hold mom-and-pop stores or small businesses to. Allow small businesses to operate with low levels of regulation, and VERY low, perhaps even 0, levels of fines/fees/other monetary obligations. Meanwhile, the facebooks/amazons/nestles of the world we can slap a 30% income tax on, and a real income tax at that, 30% by the time they're done lawyering it down, and regulate the crap out of, since there's basically zero risk of them not becoming profitable as a result.
