@David – I guess I’ll step in then and fill the gap.
First – Corporations shouldn’t pay taxes. The taxes should be on the individuals that receive stock dividends.
Two – The laws are what they are. Apple has acted in good faith and was smarter then most about how to manage it’s finances. If the American taxpayer would accept a value added tax (VAT) or Sales tax as an alternative, many of these problems would go away. But the 48% Love to cry about how someone else isn’t paying enough tax when they aren’t paying any.
