If one was looking desperately to rationalize the confiscation of personal wealth, this would suffice.
So when it’s teachers, nurses and firefighters it’s “shared sacrifice,” but when it’s corporations, it’s “the confiscation of personal wealth.”. Seems about right for a corporate thrall such as yourself…
I see from where you come…. when one can rationalize that money coming from taxpayers is equivalent to money coming from consumers paying for goods and services…. it makes it all the easier to compound that rationalization to include the confiscation of $$$ from those *evil corporations*… Was it Karl Marx that believed that the wealth of the nation was basically the property of ‘the people’?

If that’s the case, then why are corporate officers usually shielded from the misdeeds of their corporations? Your argument would be a lot stronger if the CEO of GEO were held accountable for the gross abuse of children at one of his facilities.
But then conservatives are all about avoiding personal responsibility.
