One of the biggest idiots and a chief architect of Obama’s campaign to turn America into a banana republic, again shows he is a fucking moron:
(Weekly Standard) Senate majority leader Harry Reid says that “Everybody” is “willing to pay more” taxes. He said so in an interview with a Nevada Public Radio host.
“The only people who feel there shouldn’t be more coming in to the federal government from the rich people are the Republicans in the Congress,” Reid told the radio host, according to Roll Call. “Everybody else, including the rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more.”
I would like to use two of the most left leaning entities out there as examples, and a reference to quite a few others, to discredit this idiot’s bullshit.
U.S. Senate scrutiny of Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s tax strategies turned the spotlight on a unit with $30 billion in profit since 2009 that’s incorporated in Ireland, controlled by a board in California, and doesn’t pay taxes in either place. Apple officials acknowledged yesterday at a congressional hearing that the entity — a key subsidiary in Apple’s offshore tax strategy — is managed and controlled in the U.S., yet it still isn’t paying U.S. federal income taxes.
The shifting of profits by multinational companies is costing the U.S. and Europe at least $100 billion per year in lost tax revenue, according to Kimberly Clausing, an economics professor at Reed University in Portland, Oregon. “Over the decades, Congress and governments around the world have allowed a system to develop which allows multinational companies to earn income tax-free by using contracts to shift the income, on paper, to companies in low-and zero-tax countries,” said Michael Durst, a retired international tax attorney based in Washington. The result “is eroding public confidence in the fairness of tax systems in the United States and around the world.”
Similar practices by an assortment of companies — from Google Inc. (GOOG), owner of the world’s most popular Internet search engine, to Forest Laboratories Inc. (FRX), the maker of antidepressant drug Lexapro — are drawing increased scrutiny from regulators in the U.S. and around the world, particularly as European nations face a backlash against austerity measures.
Apple and Google are but two of these entities that do not feel any obligation to pay their taxes. Another big one is GE, a company whose CEO, Jeffery Immelt, was a key member of the Obama cabinet, and masterful at not paying more taxes like that idiot Reid claims all lefties do. I bet you Immelt, like the hard core left leaning top men at Google and Apple to go back to those examples, all pay top dollar to their personal accountants to avoid onerous taxes, too.
And if you think the problem is with me pointing to evil korporashuns to make that asshat look like the idiot he is, let me talk about some of these people on the left that Reid says are all ready to pay more taxes. Let’s start with our illustrious SEC State John Kerry, whom parked his yacht in another state to avoid paying taxes. Then there is Timmy Geithner, another Obama stud, whom just chose not to pay a good chunk of his taxes at all! I am also sure no democrat uses an accountant to prepare their taxes, just filing a 1040EZ, without any deductions, because, as Reid says, they are quite happy to send more of their money to Uncle Sam for the bureaucracy to burn up. I wonder if Reid and other prominent democrats make their returns public so we can see them all paying more in taxes. Or maybe not.
Hey douchebag, if you really want others to pay more, lead by example. There already is a way to make sure people like you can pay as much as they want: just go here. Then publish them returns. Until then shut the fuck up you hypocritical cock gobbling bastard. Fuck these crooks with their hands in our wallets are just despicable. Cut the fucking spending on the bloated vote buying bureaucracy instead.
