The problem is not that corporate taxes are "only" $250B, it's that income tax is an additional $2.2 Trillion.
The federal government should be able to "live" off a budget of $250B a year. It should do everything it needs to do on that.
This shows that %90 of the money they take (plus the deficits they spend on top of that) is simply wasted or stolen.
Plus, what do Politicians pay in taxes? Most of their income is tax free, plus they get lots of perks, and get to spend OUR TAX MONEY to benefit themselves.... which is a total scam.
Where's the investigation of the fact that politicians pass laws that they then exclude themselves from? For instance, congress and the administration are not forced to live under the burdens of "obamacare", which means they get to keep their "cadillac health plans" which they also don't ever pay for (or pay taxes on!)
Of course they're going to go after Apple-- that's where the money is.
They don't care that the US government has no moral right to money earned overseas for products made overseas and sold overseas.
They're just greedy.
People talk about corporations being greedy but they all make something that people want. And if people don't wnat it, they don't force you to buy it.
The government makes things people don't want, and if you don't buy it, they send you to jail.
No politician has any room to talk about people shirking their duties.... hypocrites!
