Economic Justice

The Progressive Independent Party has witnessed the largest growth of income inequality since the days of Robber Baron. Even under Nixon, the wealthiest Americans paid a marginal tax rate of over 70%. The corporations within the United States now has so many ways to avoid paying their employees and their taxes that it has become farcical. We will end this practice of placing profits before people. We will establish a Fair Tax. We will strengthen the Estate Tax. We will close the loopholes that allow companies making billions and hide their money offshore. We have reached a pivotal moment in this country, and only serious and bold action will fix our situation.
