    Trying to make a big stink about someone doing something that they know people don't like and yet isn't illegal is a diversion.

    Well saying this is getting little to no attention in the media, and saying congress is simply doing their job

    What job is that exactly? Harassing people that did nothing wrong? Is that their job?

    I see nothing about this that needs reform. Are you perhaps just upset that people understand the tax code?

    They are following the law and yet getting grilled for it. See the problem?

    And you think its some sort of "diversion". Yea i bet this bipartisan committee sat down and was all like "hey lets help out Obama and release this"
    Yeah, they all came together to figure out how to make more money. Is that really your argument?

    I sure do.

    Nope

    I see no problem by this; "“What we intend to do is to highlight that gimmick and other Apple offshore avoidance tactics so that American working families, who pay their share of taxes, understand how offshore tax loopholes raise their tax burden and how those loopholes add to the federal deficit,” said Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), the chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. The panel initiated the probe with the backing of its top Republican, Sen. John McCain of Arizona.




    Yeah, they all came together to figure out how to make more money. Is that really your argument?
    Yes.
    Yes John McCain one day woke up and was like "hey im done with this Benghazi and other **** the administration going through right now i think ill help him out"

    It doesn't raise your tax burden. At best Democrats will just raise taxes on the rich more as a response to it. Just always spending causes deficit. Btw, is there a reason you desire to point out to me that they are doing it because they want the people to get upset as I said they did?

    Yes.

    There is always time to get more revenue. Always.

    So raising on taxes on the rich or making them pay taxes and not flee ofshores is bad?

    Time?

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    Did you go to the airport recently? It's a pretty fun place.
