I saw this piece on Plan B Economics. None of these 12 corporations paid any taxes over the last three years although they made 171 billion in profits. http://www.scribd.com/fullscreen/56809745?access_key=key-1lfp1qtlrruj6cud25oa
In the meantime, Obama hired an additional 16,000 IRS agents to run around and squeeze every poor working taxpayer out of even more money. A few thousand dollars while billions more are lost.
You simply can't make this shit up.
How did our country and our tax laws get so bad? The system and our officials are morally bankrupt. Our lawmakers, in fact Congress, could change this tomorrow. Congress regulates the tax code. They don't move a muscle, year after year. Why? Because they want it this way- that's why. They and all of their elite cronies benefit from a tax system designed to give the wealthy loopholes and to screw the working class.
How is this going to change? I'm not sure. We lost control long ago. Sometimes when things are stolen from you- you have to steal them back.
