Evidence (as if it was needed) that cutting corporate taxes is fucking bullshit:

Just don’t understand the mindset of a billionaire who feels threatened by workers looking for security.

Power dynamic. It's pretty easy to understand.

No, I mean to get to that point as a human being. To be that rich and still feel that way. It’s incomprehensible to me. Shit like holding control over others is irrelevant when you’re that rich

Incorrect. If comfortable wealth was the objective with these types, these types wouldn't exist. It's about always winning. One of these fuckers is the president now, so why is it incomprehensible for that to be a thought pattern?

You don't get rich by ever becoming comfortable. It is an interesting form of sociopathy.
