    Does it say they had a negative tax bill? Paying less is not the government giving you money.

    Maybe you'd rather China had those bases, and the level of influence that comes with that.

    Too bad you didn't feel that way about GM and the housing bail outs

    It is if you believe what money represents belongs to the government. The key is that money represents the value (of property) created by a person's investment time, skill, innovation, materials and/or risk.

    The Tax breaks that companies are using to boost executive compensation and decrease corporate tax liabilities, among these are full deductibility for “performance pay” and lower taxes for so-called “carried interest,” tax breaks that are costing the U.S. Treasury billions in much-needed revenue. The Economic Policy Institute has estimated that a total of $121.5 billion in executive compensation was deductible from corporate earnings between 2007 and 2010, with 55 percent comprised of performance-based compensation.

    I believe it, yet this is not the government giving a company money.

    Because taxing less is not giving money. Especially money they have no legal claim to.

    Oh bull. The federal government continues to subsidize some of the biggest companies in America. Boeing, Xerox, IBM, Motorola, Dow Chemical, and GE. They all receive millions in taxpayer-funded benefits. Not to mention that the federal crop subsidy programs continue to fund the wealthiest farmers.
