Aufrufe 4 025 254

Many of America’s largest corporations shift a surprising portion of their profits overseas to avoid paying taxes. Even more surprisingly, that’s a legal thing to do.

    NO, Mnuchin is not a good looking person at all. You re misinformed if you think that the exterior with no regard to the interior of a man has anything to do with their “looks”

    That offshore 'revenue' is essentially stagnant in most countries(because most 1st world countries aren't stupid enough to give a blankcheck ). Tax breaks allow corporations to bring that money back in and spend it at a fraction of the cost. It's just smart business, unfortunately.

    my family is really well off and i can tell you first hand that the wealthy are benefitting more ... this countys legislation fills rich peoples full pockets. The only intelligent people I know who support Trump are wealthy and/or in business :( its criminal that the wealthiest and most fortunate among us have the luxury of tax evasion and maximizing the leftover amount after taxes... such disturbingly disgusting greed.. These men spit venom and tell people its a remedy. Why are we lenient on people who will never know what its like to struggle, or to struggle again and so hateful towards those whose lives are nothing but struggle? Out of sight out of mind. Our politicians are monarchs living in their castles, looking down upon the peasants - seeing ants and expendable flecks of dirt. They've perched themselves on some pedestal of their own creation, and it's become easy for them to forget their job is to serve and protect - for the people they worked for are now distant ideas...

    Corporations are essentially tax collectors. It is very much like sales taxes. I know this is oversimplifying it. If you reduce corporate taxes enough the incentive to escape taxes is greatly reduced. Also it helps level the playing field so smaller corporations can be more competitive with the large corporations that can afford to setup shops outside the US.

    Honestly, if I lived in the US, I'd move just out of spite about taxation inequality. JK, I wouldn't be able to afford to. My taxes would be too high to save up for something like that. What I don't get is why places like Bermuda don't hike their corporate taxation to JUUUUUST below the next highest. Then they can bank off of every rich scumbag taking refuge there, and if they don't like it, they could always stop robbing America. Yeah, that's what I thought. Oh, or maybe taxation based on profit. If only there were some word for that, some sort of thing every civilian has to pay. Anyway, this "Income tax" could be levied against companies as they make the money by the countries in which they made it, which would be a fact embedded in the past and not a thing which could be moved.

    This is fucking stupid. He is basically arguing for taxes. Corporations dont pay taxes. People pay taxes. That simply means that the more you tax a company the more the people pay for goods and services. Not to mention we are paying those higher prices with money that has been taxed when we earned it. then we pay a sales tax. Corporations should not be taxed at all.

    you're funny, but you hate on conservatism and trump every episode and mislead people. For that, You have my down vote every week sir. Half of what you say is GOLD, and the other half, very misleading. You are obviously a socialist, and half of your viewers think socialism is terrible. Perhaps you shouldn't push it so hard.
