Re: SCOTUS can't get anything right lately

Really ? Like say General Electric that paid no taxes in 2010 on 14 billion worth of profits but got a 3 billion tax refund ?

Oh, wait, the shareholders are taxed, then. Nope, they use all kinds of loopholes to avoid that.

Bull.

GE is one of the worst examples of politics and pandering. They exploited a number of tax breaks to avoid paying taxes that were created by politicians looking to get their donations. Stop taxing corporations, kick them out of government, and none of those loopholes would have been made into law.

It's funny how many people rant and rave about how evil corporations are and how they should shut up, but they just can't visualize a country that doesn't suck up corporate tax money.
