If "you can't tax corporations, because they will simply pass it on to consumers", then consumers are paying the corporation's taxes. Ergo, if a guy like Koch donates millions to charity to offset his evil, isn't it actually the consumer who is paying the charity?
So because I buy Brawney paper towels, I am actually the donor. I think somebody should make me a sammich.
Here are some facts:
More?On July 25, 2000, Clinton’s EPA sent a letter to Charles Koch congratulating his company on plans to reduce emissions at the Pine Bend and Corpus Christi refineries. “I appreciate that Koch took the initiative to work with EPA to develop an agreement that would advance the common interests of Koch, EPA, and the general public,” wrote Office of Regulatory Enforcement director Eric V. Schaeffer. “The Koch representatives were outstanding in their cooperation throughout the negotiation process.” None other than Janet Reno said she was “pleased” with the agreement. Koch’s cooperation, said then-EPA administrator Carol Browner (now President Obama’s climate czar), was “unprecedented.”
Still more?Since Obama’s inauguration, Koch companies have been recognized more than 280 times by local, state, and federal agencies for safety and environmental stewardship. In 2009 Invista voluntarily agreed to a huge settlement with EPA. “Invista is making a clean start in a settlement that achieves significant environmental benefits,” an EPA administrator said at the time.
http://www.weeklystandard.com/articl...25.html?page=3In October 2009 the EPA gave its SmartWay Excellence Award to Georgia-Pacific for reducing pollution in the freight industry. In October 2010 Flint Hills Resources agreed to a deal with the federal government over permitting rights at its Texas refinery. “The process we have agreed to with Flint Hills Resources is an excellent one,” said EPA regional administrator Al Armendariz in a press release, “and we look forward to working with the company to complete the work to transition their permits.”
There is a lot more, but reading facts and researching history is not the principle activity of ideological zealots. Their activity consists of bumper sticker slogans and mass hysteria encouraged by the barking dogs who call themselves The Left. They have to call themselves that because they sure ain't right.
