    All welfare is corporate welfare. The difference is only in how that welfare is delivered. Welfare sold as welfare for the poor provides businesses with market activity which increases their profits, while corporate welfare gives them the aid directly. Why do you think rich liberals support welfare for the poor? Do you really think it has anything to do with the poor or is it more likely they realize that the system is actually meant to help them?

They should show some loyalty to this county and to its people. If they can't do that, then they can say goodbye to our business.
    So avoiding taxes on repatriated funds earned and taxed in other countries while still paying taxes to the US on income earned in the US is biting the hand that feeds them?

    Does the Geneva Convention address that level of tortured logic?

    It's hard to blame someone for wanting to pay as little tax as possible. The problem, as far as I am concerned is that we send US jobs overseas.

    Stupid to think otherwise.
    The last time I went to Burger King I could swear I saw people working there.

    Lower taxes is hard to compete with.

    It's the lower wages, lower standards of living, and lower prices of basic necessities that are hard for US workers to compete with.

    I was referring to corporations leaving the US like GE and Burger King.

    I know. I'm saying that although that may be a problem, it is not the major point of concern. IMHO, the larger problem is that US jobs have been shipped overseas.
