    If they want to cut welfare, why not start with the corporations [subsidies]?

    Exactly, corporate welfare is far larger than welfare for the poor. Both welfares need to be cleaned up and corporate welfare should go away period.

    They paid what? 2% of our budget? How much did GM or GE pay?

    “http://www.imore.com/apple-already-pays-1-out-every-40-tax-dollars-us-collects-how-much-more-does-senate-want”

    That is an irrelevant comparison. How much do they pay in comparison to their income?

    Steve Breen needs to read what Harleyquinn posted and put out THAT as a cartoon.

    How idiotic and hypocritical of congress to go after a big taxpayer when companies like GE don’t pay any!

    No wonder the congressional approval rating is lower than pig manure. At least pig manure can be used for fertilizer …

    Mussolini once said that Fascism should actually be called Corporatism. In the United States, Corporations are now also people. Any corporation that has enough profits to donate to political campaigns should not need to be subsidized by the gov’t they are helping to elect.
    The tax code needs to be simplified and loopholes closed, but I do not believe our current batch of legislators can agree on how or even IF to do it.

    And people wonder why companies move jobs offshore.

    OK, so apple pays $1 out of every $40 CORPORATIONS pay. So if the IRS collects a total of $40 from corporations every year, Apple pays $1.
    Statistics can be tricky and deceptive – in the right hands…

    If Apple feels they are paying too much in taxes, it is probably because they are also paying taxes in the countries they actually manufacture in, as well as tariffs and sales taxes on parts they import to their manufacturing facilities. Perhaps it would be better if they moved all manufacturing to the US. The savings in international taxes would offset the need to pay higher wages, as well as help improve the economy here.

    Moving jobs offshore, and moving profits offshore, are two completely different things.

    Why should we pay any taxes at all? We’re the Job Creators.

    Corporate taxes are added to the cost of the products so that the people don’t discover the true cost of their government.
