    Real democracy equals economic democracy. Super-majority requirements to raise taxes are undemocratic. It is a tyranny of the wealthy minority. We need to tax corporations. On local, state and federal levels, corporations need to pay their fair share of taxes. The government should raise taxes to fund social programs for welfare, childcare, and health care. We need to end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. All taxes should be progressive. We need federal laws to avoid state-to-state disparities or conflict. We need to increase the income tax on people earning $250,000 per year or more.
