its that simple: they go to 'congress' to create fancy "laws" that allow the RWG to take all the money.
nothing changed after the housing crash except for better modified "laws" allowing them to steal more
with impunity. you know, cuz theyre RWG.
what looms is the knowledge of how many foreign countries have helped take mericas money
and use it for nefarious purposes while congress claims patriotism flags and cough cough.
if this isnt domestic terorism i dont know what is.

AMERICA’S TAX CODE: DESIGNED TO CREATE DONALD TRUMP
Tipping the scales in favor of the rich doesn’t just create inequality, it produces an inept upper class shielded from the consequences of its errors.
In 2011, The New York Times published what was, at the time, the most shocking expose on tax policy in decades. General Electric, the largest American corporation, had notched a $14.2 billion profit in the previous year ― and paid no federal income tax.
GE had achieved this financial miracle through creative accounting, ferocious lobbying and years of corporate hiring that lured top tax officials away from just about every government agency, office or committee with jurisdiction over the matter.... in part because GE and its lobbying allies had persuaded Congress and regulators to write rules in the company’s favor.
....And in 2017, President Donald Trump signed into law his signature policy achievement, a sweeping $1.5 trillion tax law that slashed the tax obligations of the rich and large corporations, hacked away at federal revenues and exacerbated economic inequality.
Tipping the scales in favor of the rich doesn’t just generate inequality, it creates an inept upper class shielded from the consequences of its errors and granted access to political power.
Trump is not an anomaly. Much of the so-called innovation that drives up corporate share prices amounts to little more than devising ways to stiff workers on their pay, rip off customers, or hide from the tax man. From Uber to offshoring to Wells Fargo’s fake accounts, executives are rewarded for creating inequality.
Many of the tax loopholes Trump has been exploiting were enacted with bipartisan support.
One of our two political parties is devoted to celebrating the rich for being rich, while half of the other party wants to do the same. It is a failure of leadership that with a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, the public is learning about Trump’s tax returns from the Times instead of the House Ways and Means Committee. The effort to release those returns has been tied up in court, but only after seemingly endless foot-dragging from Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.), who has prioritized deal-making with the administration over confrontation about corruption.
