Soak the Rich: Chevron

Great news, Sherrod Brown enthusiasts! The next corporation in the S&P 500 by market cap is Chevron, another eeeevil oil company. Let’s get right to business filling Washington’s $1.62 trillion budget deficit by making Chevron pay its fair share!

Now Soaking: Chevron Corporation

A capitalist would ask whether raising Chevron’s taxes will, in turn, increase the price of oil & natural gas – and by extension, everything connected to energy & transportation. Stupid capitalist! Why don’t those guys realize big-government leftists like Sherrod Brown have things well in hand so long as free markets – blech! – don’t get in the way? Dramatically raising taxes on Chevron also won’t hurt the people holding Chevron’s 2 billion outstanding shares of stock, nor the corporation’s 62,000 employees.

We, The People who support Sherrod Brown’s fiscal policies, hold these unhinged assumptions to be self-evident.
