    Really? You have the right to tell businesses what to do with their money? Or you think the government has that right? Please be clear about that, eh?

    Please quote the relevant portion of the Constitution that gives you the right to tell these US companies what they must do with all that money they are "hoarding".

    Using, exactly, what constitutional government power(s) to do so? What a business/individual does with its/their net (after tax) profits/income is the very essence of freedom.

    are you really unaware that corporate charters can be revoked?
    wow.

    the relevant part would pertain to my right to vote for someone who will work to revoke their charter, should it be appropriate.

    There's no better summation of the constitutional role of the government then to promote the welfare of its citizens!

    Taking of life, liberty or property requires due process of law - we have yet to establish such a law. On what basis could how one chooses to spend (or not spend) their earnings allow the government to seize those earnings? PPACA comes very close yet sets clear limits as to how much can be taken and under what conditions.
