This report, gathered by the office of Bernie Sanders (I-VT), is one of the best and most concise takedowns of the greedy Mammon-worshiping plutocrats who don’t care if they destroy America provided they get their share of the corpse that I have ever read. In sum:
“These are some of the same CEOs who head corporations that:
— received a total taxpayer bailout of more than $2.5 trillion from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department and nearly caused the economy to collapse just four years ago;
— outsourced hundreds of thousands of American jobs to China and other low wage countries, forcing their workers to receive unemployment insurance and other federal benefits;
— avoided at least $34.5 billion in taxes by setting up more than 600 subsidiaries in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, and other offshore tax havens since 2008; and
— a dozen of these companies paid no corporate income taxes in at least one year since 2008, while receiving more than $6.4 billion in tax refunds from the IRS, after making billions in profits.”
This is information y’all need. This is information EVERYONE needs.
Mammon and his asshat followers suck.
