Taxes filed, returns expected
The 99 might feel rejected
When they see what they get back
They need that money to stay on track
The corporations will get fat instead
With some tax cut legislation
Wages will increase, is what they said
With stock buy-backs the wealth gets fed
Into the mouths of rich shareholders
Stock dividends, portfolio folders
While most of us live check to check
Trickle-down wont pay the rent
The taxman still comes for your dollars
Unless you’re wearing a white collar
Loopholes on their capital gains
I think their bathtub still needs drained.
Tax them all to pay for this?
Green New Deal, we pump our fists!
But how we gonna pay for it?
Congress spends a deficit!
Taxes don’t fund federal spending
It’s these truths I keep defending
“The sky is falling, inflation’s soaring!!”
We’re only limited by resources
The government spends, then they tax you
Taxes give our currency value!
Once collected they disappear
Into the sub-stratosphere
Money is keystroked into existence
MMT you can’t resist it!
It’s a system, not just a theory,
Describing sovereign fiat currency
So do some research, learn the basics
Taxes, bonds, and economics
Ellis, Steve up in the booth
Real Progressives brings you TRUTH!
