Do you mean the greedy bankers who lost millions of customers $$$ in high risk investments, made millions in bonuses for doing so ..... Basically went broke because of their actions ..... Then took taxpayers money ( bailout) to save their asses. Is that who you mean? ..... Didn't think so.

Its unfortunate that we have so many people in this country like you that somehow think others owe their success to someone else and should be forced to fork over their hard earned money.

Who are you to judge that they have more money than they know what to do with? Thats not your business or anybody elses but Apples.

And it's also unfortunate that people like you think we owe Apple a free lunch.

And yet Republicans raise them too (Reagan 11 times; George HW Bush at least once to break his pledge). My taxes are down under Obama. If you are susceptible to the Bush sunset, then you are in the highest tax bracket - congratulations! Incidentally, your tax rate would go from 33% to 36%. It was 52% unde Nixon and 92% under Eisenhower (approx).
