    Who are you to judge that they have more money than they know what to do with? That?s not your business or anybody else?s but Apple?s.

    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).
