    Since the biggest corps pay no effective taxes regardless of tax rates and jobs are moving overseas, then there doesn't seem to be any correlation between taxes and job outsourcing.

    What about the ones that don't pay any taxes. Are they taxed to death too? And why aren't they making jobs? Republicans said they would make jobs. Don't tell me Republicans are wrong again. Well, at least they are the only political party with a perfect record.

    If y'all think the purpose of companies is to hire people and pay taxes then y'all have probably never formed a business, hired anyone, nor paid any taxes.

    I've created companies so I could feed my family. Sure, I also hired people and paid taxes but whenever a company's payroll and tax bill interfered with feeding my family I'd shut down the company. You may think I'm selfish for closing down companies. I think you're morons for never having started one while trying to tell me how to do it.

    Well of course CEOs who figure out a way to eschew paying taxes must be worth every cent they're paid!

    I mean isn't saving money from taxation ALSO a valuable skill worthy of a high salary??!!

    If we want to blame anybody for this event, don't blame the CEOs who have learned how to game the system.

    BLAME the people who allowed the system to be so GOD DAMNED gamable in the first place!

    My corporation pays very little Federal tax.

    I / employees pay tax on our income and shareholders on their dividends.
