    I guess you haven't been paying attention over the last 12 months...let alone the last 12 hours.

    your ranting about GE is funny

    is GE a net benefit to the USA?

    lets see

    it employs thousands

    it pays billions in benefits, dividends etc

    sure does more for the usa then lots of those dem voters who suck up tax dollars and give nothing back

    Taxes aren't that bad (actually a very affordable city too), no need for a gun personally, corruption is getting cracked down on, and the Dems aren't all that bad as they mostly focus on social issues which I usually align with.

    great-you can live there I choose a place that is a bit more free and has far less crime

    Here in a GOP hotbed, heretics aren't burned at the stake, gays are not stoned and you can have a dead head sticker on your car, as I did for years, and the cops don't hassle you

    You did not answer the question that was raised by your own comments.

    Again, as an American who lives in America, why do you care one iota about GE and what they may pay in "other jurisdictions"?

    Is your loyalty to America?

    I've mentioned this in a few places now and well, why not here also. The Buffett rule won't likely even affect Buffett as his salary is reported at $100,000 a year.
