    JUSTICE FOR VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING ACT OF 2015

    "...ne thing since I have been here in Washington; it is that the rich and powerful seem to do pretty well.

So this legislation, I think, act..."

Further, the GAO has reported that the effective tax rate of large, profitable corporations is just 12.6 percent--much lower than the 35-percent statutory rate because of these tax loopholes. That is much lower than what millions of middle-class workers pay to the IRS because of the loopholes written into the Tax Code by corporate lobbyists.
