    Obama’s GE to Export Nuclear Technology to Iran via China

    December 19, 2012
    By Daniel Greenfield

    Obama’s problem is that he has too many things to at once. How does he destroy the economy and help arm Iran with a single policy? It’s a tough challenge, but just as the Spork was invented as a way of combining the spoon and the fork, shipping nuclear technology was a way to create the ultimate spork from hell.

    Excellent find, I'm certain you're not going to find this type information on the front page of the New York Times or any other liberal news suppressing rag or Democrat controlled T.V. News outlet....:thup:

    Last year the New York Times noted that GE had found a way to avoid paying Federal corporate taxes altogether.

    Its extraordinary success is based on an aggressive strategy that mixes fierce lobbying for tax breaks and innovative accounting that enables it to concentrate its profits offshore.

    As discussed earlier, the Fiscal Cliff raised taxes on taxpayers, but gave away more than that in corporate tax breaks, including to GE.

    The “fiscal cliff” legislation passed this week included $76 billion in special-interest tax credits for the likes of General Electric, Hollywood and even Captain Morgan. But these subsidies weren’t the fruit of eleventh-hour lobbying conducted on the cliff’s edge — they were crafted back in August in a Senate committee, and they sat dormant until the White House reportedly insisted on them this week.

    Where did those GE Tax Breaks come from? They came from Democratic Senator Max Baucus.
