    The U.S. tax codes are over 90% EXEMPTIONS, NOT taxes. Yes, we need some drastic changes. Lotsa’ luck on that, from either party.(especially when it comes to corporate responsibility to support the country that makes their profits possible, like well, those in the M.I.C., where R & D should be R & P, for rape and pillage)

    It always strikes me as hilarious that the developed country with the lowest tax rates overall and lowest federal expenditure by percentage of GDP, is the one with the most tax whiners crying about how much they pay.
    Couple of years ago, some neo congressman was claiming Britain was SOOO much better, so I did the math. If the US tax rate was set to the British tax rates and nothing else changed, we’d be in surplus at all levels, federal state and city.

    Getting the govt to cut spending would do the same without impacting the tax payers.

    Please… Corporate lobbyists paid good money to create all the tax loopholes that make the US tax code so complex. It should be no surprise that companies are taking it a step further to avoid all of their taxes.

    So wait just a minute. I thought the company was to make a profit for those who ran the business. By doing so they provide jobs and a tax revenue for the place they live. So why do loony libs think it bad for a company to leave the highest corporate tax rate in the world so as to meet the obligation of the shareholders? The burden of providing a safe and prosperous place to work and do business is of the community you place the sale of the product. You are putting the cart before the horse if you think a place of commence is to provide taxes.

    He’s right, the only one’s who pay full taxes owed is the person who holds a job and gets a W2 or an ordinary investor where the brokerage house reports every dime of interest, dividends and capital gains. Companies like GE and Google can end up not paying a dime. A lot of small businesses can do a lot of cash transactions that never get reported anywhere.

    @Ted Lind A lot of small businesses can do a lot of cash transactions that never get reported anywhere."

    And that would be illegal.
    But as for Google and GE? Fair TAX!

    And Fair Tax is the simplest solution out there! 1 rate collected at point of service!

    @Harleyquinn

    And your plan for getting that through Congress is what? Whenever “tax code” is mentioned the lobbyist swarms descend and offer anything you want to get it their way.

    It’s only “simple” to the simple minded.

    Best argument for replacing our current tax code with a VAT. Takes power AWAY from lobbyist.

    Getting the govt to cut MILITARY spending AND CORPORATE SUBSIDIES would do the same without impacting the tax payers.

    Can nobody here see that ALL taxation is theft? No matter how cute the name is. If you tried to do what the gov’t does there would be a lengthy prison term in your future. It’s called extortion.

    I am incredulous

    So, to stop using any governmental taxes I suggest you stop using the roads for just one govern-mentally supplied service. If you have any problems with health or crime or fire do not call either the police or yur fire departments. If you have kids do not send them to public school, and certainly do not take advantage of any public supported colleges in your area. In fact, move out to the country and grow only your own food, make all your own clothes, etc, etc. as the government has supports for almost all of those industries that supply those kinds of item. And while your at it please get off of the internet, as the government also has support for that cyber function as well!!

    In fact, why don’t you (and all of the other whining and crying ultra conservatives along with you) just all move to Somalia, a wonderful anarchistic place that has almost no government at all!!
