    Corporations need to do everything they can to hold on to their money and keep it from getting into the hands of a greedy irresponsible government out of control. BTW, inflation adjusted federal tax revenues hit a record $2,46 trillion for the first 10 months of the fiscal year this July. And it's still not enough for the monetary vampires in Washington.

    Any company doing business in the US pays US taxes.

    But no more than what US taxes should be, which is 10% of income with no exeptions or exemptions of any kind. Any amount paid over that 10% is due back to the buisness with interest.

    This thread is about how BK was over taxed and the government still wants more.

    Since this basically boils down to "should we trade with other countries", the incredibly, incredibly, incredibly obvious answer is "yes".

    We tried to shut down trade once in the early 30s. Results were.... bad....

    Of course.
    The tax code has a number of tax credits and tax deductions for the expressed purpose of encouraging certain behaviors, like charity and research and development. Seems odd to want to ban companies that simply are doing the things that Congress and the President want them to do.
