  • >> IN SPITE OF THAT, I SOLVED

  • IT, YES.

  • >> Tucker: GOOD TO SEE YOU.

  • >> YOU TOO.

  • >> Tucker: LAST YEAR, AMAZON

  • THE COMPANY MADE $11 BILLION IN

  • PROFIT.

  • THAT IS ONE-THIRD OF THE GDP OF

  • THE ENTIRE STATE OF VERMONT.

  • IT IS A TON OF MONEY.

  • BUT REMARKABLY, AMAZON DID NOT

  • PAY A SINGLE DIME OF FEDERAL

  • INCOME TAX, AND THEY ARE NOT

  • ALONE.

  • DOZENS OF POSSIBLE CORPORATIONS

  • PAY NOTHING IN FEDERAL INCOME

  • TAXES THIS YEAR.

  • DELTA AIR LINES, CHEVRON, GM,

  • MORE.

  • SOME ARE EVEN GETTING TAX

  • REBATES THEY CAN APPLY LATER.

  • IT IS A WEIRD SYSTEM WE HAVE.

  • OUR TAX CODE IS BROKEN, BUT

  • ALMOST NO ONE IS SAYING ANYTHING

  • ABOUT IT FOR A DEMOCRATIC

  • PRESIDENT A CANDIDATE ANDREW

  • YANG IS.

  • HE HAS A PLAN HE SAID WOULD

  • CHANGE IT.

  • WE TALKED TO HIM ABOUT HIS PLAN

  • A LITTLE WHILE AGO.

  • >> Tucker: SEE YOU MAKE THE

  • CASE THAT THESE COMPANIES TAKE

  • AMAZON, BUT IT COULD BE CHEVRON,

  • GM, BECAUSE TAXPAYERS HAVE IN

  • PART GIVEN TO THEM AND THEY ARE

  • GIVING NOTHING IN RETURN.

  • HOW ARE WE FIXING THIS?

  • SPEAKER AMAZON IS THE MOST

  • EGREGIOUS EXAMPLE, THEY ARE

  • SOAKING UP $20 BILLION IN BUSINS

  • SOAKING UP $20 BILLION IN BUSINA

  • SOAKING UP $20 BILLION IN BUSIND

  • CAUSING 30% OF AMERICANS

  • MALLS AND STORES TO CLOSE, AND

  • TAXPAYERS SEE ZERO IN RETURN.

  • IF YOU LOOK AT WHETHER ADVANCED

  • ECONOMIES HAVE DONE, THEY FIGURE

  • THIS OUT.

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN P

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN A

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN E

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN T

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN M

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN Z

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN N

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN I

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN S

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN G

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN I

  • WE NEED TO HAVE A MECHANISM IN G

  • TO PAY ITS FAIR SHARE, ALONG

  • WITH NETFLIX, THE OTHER

  • COMPANIES THAT ARE PAYING ZERO

  • IN TAXES.

  • VALLEY AFTER-TAX, THE AMERICAN

  • PEOPLE WOULD GET A TINY SLICE OF

  • EVERY GOOGLE SEARCH, ON AND ON,

  • VERY TOUGH FOR COMPANIES TO GET

  • OUT OF AN ADDED TAX SYSTEM.

  • >> Tucker: WHY DON'T WE HAVE

  • THAT?

  • >> GREAT QUESTION.

  • PEOPLE HAVE ADVOCATED FOR QUITE

  • SOME TIME, IN MY CAMPAIGN IS

  • ADVOCATING AND CHAMPIONING IT

  • RIGHT NOW, WE NEED TO WISE UP

  • THAT COMPANIES LIKE AMAZON ARE

  • VERY SMART AND MOVING THEIR

  • EARNINGS THROUGH PLACES LIKE IRE

  • EARNINGS THROUGH PLACES LIKE IRA

  • EARNINGS THROUGH PLACES LIKE IRD

  • EARNINGS THROUGH PLACES LIKE IR,

  • EARNINGS THROUGH PLACES LIKE IRS

  • EARNINGS THROUGH PLACES LIKE IRE

  • NOTHING OF IT.

  • MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO

  • SELL IN OUR SOCIETY WITHOUT

  • COST.

  • >> Tucker: THE BANKRUPTCY OF

  • COUNTLESS AMERICAN BUSINESSES.

  • THERE IS ALSO THE FACT THEY

  • BASICALLY SUBSIDIZED THEIR LABOR

  • COSTS USING OUR SOCIAL SERVICES.

  • WHAT IS THE COST OF THAT, DO YOU

  • THINK?

  • >> IS IN THE BILLIONS OR TENS OF

  • BILLIONS.

  • ONE INSTANCE WHERE McDONALD'S

  • WAS SENDING ITS PEOPLE

  • INSTRUCTIONS AS TO HOW TO FILE

  • FOR VARIOUS SOCIAL SERVICES.

  • YOU ARE RIGHT, SOCIAL PROGRAMS

  • HAVE BEEN SUBSIDIZING THE

  • LOW-WAGE PATTERNS MANY OF THESE

  • EMPLOYERS.

  • >> Tucker: SO WHY ARE YOU THE

  • ONLY CANDIDATE WHO IS THINKING

  • THROUGH WHAT TO DO ABOUT THIS.

  • NO MATTER?

  • IS A KIND OF WEIRD?

  • >> I THINK IT IS WEIRD PAIRED

  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT

  • OTHER COUNTRIES, OTHER ADVANCED

  • ECONOMIES HAVE FIGURED IT OUT,

  • AND WE ARE THE ONLY ADVANCED

  • ECONOMY THAT DOES NOT HAVE A

  • VALUE-ADDED TAX IN PLACE.

  • WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THE

  • AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY

  • SEEING SOME OF THE GAINS FROM

  • THE INCREDIBLE INNOVATION AND

  • VALUE THAT COMPANIES LIKE AMAZON

  • AND SALESFORCE, NETFLIX, ALL OF

  • WHOM PAID ZERO IN TAXES LAST

  • YEAR, OR GETTING AWAY WITH.

  • AND THEY ARE DOING THEIR JOB,

  • PAY AS LITTLE IN TAXES AS

  • POSSIBLE.

  • WE HAVE TO DO OUR JOB, MAKE SURE

  • THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE OUR FAIR

  • SHARE.

  • >> Tucker: JUST TO ARGUE THE

  • OTHER SIDE FOR A SECOND, THAT

  • WOULD PRESUMABLY INCREASE THE

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEI

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEA

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEN

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEC

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEN

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEU

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEE

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMES

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEO

  • COST OF AMERICANS AMEF

  • GOODS?

  • >> IN SOME WAYS, COMPANIES WILL

  • FIND COST EFFICIENCY OR EAT PART

  • OF IT, BUT THAT IS ONE REASON MY

  • CAMPAIGN WANTS TO TAKE DOWN

  • MONEY WE ARE GETTING FROM THE

  • ADDED VALUE TAX AND RETURN IT TO

  • THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN THE FORM

  • OF A DIVIDEND.

  • THAT IS THE MOST DIRECT WAY WE

  • CAN HAVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

  • BENEFIT.

  • THE FEAR IS THAT EVEN IF WE DO

  • END UP INCREASING THE TAX RATE

  • ON SOME OF THESE COMPANIES, THE

  • AMERICAN PEOPLE WON'T BENEFIT

  • FROM THAT.

  • >> Tucker: BECAUSE THAT MONEY

  • WILL BE SWALLOWED BY OUR

  • POLITICAL MACHINE SOMEHOW?

  • >> YEAH, IT WILL GO INTO THE

  • GIANT PIPES OF D.C., NEVER TO BE

  • SEEN OR HEARD FROM AGAIN.

  • THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THAT

  • DOESN'T HAPPEN BY PUTTING THOSE

  • ECONOMIC RESOURCES DIRECTLY TO

  • THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

  • >> Tucker: WOULDN'T THAT BE

  • BAD FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIVE IN

  • THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND ON

  • PROPERTY HERE?

  • WOULDN'T IT BE BETTER FOR US IF

  • WE COULD HOARD ALL OF THE MONEY?

  • >> I HAVE A FEELING ALL OF YOU

  • WOULD BE FINE.

  • WASHINGTON, D.C., THE HIGHEST

  • PER CAPITA INCOME IN THE COUNTRY

  • AT THIS POINT.

  • I'VE A FEELING THE BOUTIQUE

  • RESTAURANTS WILL HAVE PLENTY OF

  • BUSINESS.

  • >> Tucker: BECAUSE WE ARE

  • MAKING INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS THE

  • WARD WANTS TO BUY.

  • NO, YOU'RE TAKING THE MONEY AND

>> IN SPITE OF THAT, I SOLVED
