Soak the Rich: Caterpillar

To a government-for-all-seasons Progressive like Sherrod Brown, companies that build things are a necessary evil. They fund campaigns and pay taxes, but it’s not fair that private industry is better than government at making stuff. With that in mind, companies that build things which build other things are even more offensive. A company that builds things which build other things while consuming fossil fuels? Caterpillar, prepare to be soaked!

Now Soaking: Caterpillar

Fear not: this punitive tax policy won’t affect the price of heavy machinery or any of the building projects such machinery is used for. Although a “free market” is nothing more than evil fat-cats cheating helpless saps out of money, Sheriff Sherrod’s patrolling these parts! Supply, demand, risk, cost, and reward are shadows from the dark old days.

None of Caterpillar’s 104,490 employees will lose their jobs if Sherrod Brown and Barack Obama work their not-at-all-socialist magic. Last and least, the only funds & individuals holding any of Caterpillar’s 644,000,000 outstanding shares of stock who suffer will be the ones who deserve to.

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