Right now, an estimated 21 TRILLION with a "T", of OUR Money and or ASSETs, is "ILLEGALY Parked" in Offshore / FOREIGN Accounts in a concerted, calculated effort by Trump's Elite Pals and or Wall Street Corporations to perhaps EVADE Paying their share of Taxes ~ INSANITY ~ And NOW? Mr. Trump & his Republican Cohorts are "STRUGGLING Mightily" to transfer even MORE or OUR Wealth into the GREEDY Hands of these very same Un-Patriotic DREGs via their "CORPORATE WELFARE Tax Cut Scheme" ~ BTW, these "PUPPETs" are also attempting once again to "SABOTAGE" ObamaCARE in the same legislation ~ CRIMINAL

Well Wesman, I know you're "Allergic 2 FACTs" & it's OBVIOUS U never paid into the American Safeguard Medicare or Social Security, perhaps never had Health Ins & perhaps never paid taxes ~ If U did, you'd B just as OUTRAGED as the RESISTANCE
That is a great telling remark. "Like the French in WWII, AP was leading an underground Resistance against the tyranny of fascism in America" Makes for a great movie. Albeit along the lines of Monty Python and Troupe.
He's like a South Park character.
Well Eric, The "RESISTANCE" during WW2 included Gens. Patton, McArthur & my Grand-Father who CRUSHED Nazi Sympathizers like NutCASE Steve Bannon & "Comrade Trump" who CONTINUEs 2 BETRAY the USA & her People by expressing LOYALTY 2 Our ENE
And General Patton famously said they were fighting the wrong people. The Nazis were the good guys compared to the communists, comrade 'Prime.'
AP for WWII the term is La Résistance. It was the French civilian resistance to Germany. Patton did not fight in it. MacArthur was in a different theater. You are a bit frightening speaking of this with so little education of it.
Eric, the AMERICAN Military was the "RESISTANCE" & Defeated Trump's Nazi Bretheren ~ Nazis/Communists execute the same AGENDA like Trump's / GOPs, REVOKE HealthCARE, PILLAGE the USA by Funneling TRILLIONs 2 ELITEs & Impoverish the PEOPLE
'Trump's Nazi Brethren' - does Comrade Prime understand Comrade Trump wasn't alive at the time? Should we tell Comrade Prime he's making himself look foolish again?
I'll "Attribute" your Response 2 a "BeatNik" TRAPPED in his "Personal AUDIO Splendor" ~ 21 TRILLION of OUR $$ Sits Offshore 2 EVADE Taxes & Mr. Trump / GOP R about 2 Gift them even MORE Money while Disassembling your HealthCARE ~ Thoughts?
I told you before I do not buy health insurance. So the only health care I have is when I pay cash to go to the clinic. The rest sounds like another Comrade conspiracy theory.
The individual mandate is a communist inspired policy.............
Well Wesman, Hope U sell enough guitars 2 pay 4 an "EXTENDED Hospital Stay GOD Forbid" ~ Hxprof ~ If ENSURING ALL Americans have HealthCARE is "Communism", what do U call REWARDING Wall St which already STASHEs Trillions OffShore, with MORE $?
AP a resistence is when you county is attacked. We never ever resisted Hitlers advances. We were called the Allies. We took the fight to them. But argue away at a totally losing notion.
That is true Russia has been our ally most of the time.
We were "ATTACKED", it was called "P Harbor" ~ "RESISTANCE" takes many forms, "From Within" is NOT a Pre-Requisite ~ Reports say, Mnuchin, Wilbur Ross etc R HIDING Our Cash Offshore, do we COMPEL them 2 Re-Patriate it B-4 we GIFT them MORE?
The individual mandate doesn't insure anyone - it only forces people to buy what they don't want. That sounds communist to me.
AP your knowledge of history explains a lot of you ignorance of politics. We never ever resisted Nazism. We saw we came and we conquered. I guess they just teach you kids movies now a days. Really sad. But telling.Nazis or Russians - choose.
Eric ~ American Led 1 of the most Successful Resistances EVER ~ Now, would U, Wesman or Hxprof like 2 address WHY on Earth "Charlatan Trump" / GOP R trying desperately 2 Transfer MORE of our WEALTH 2 Companies that HOARD 21 Trillion Offshore
We can keep the rate at 35%, & we'll never see a dollar from those offshore profits (legal deferment). Drop the rate, & make it mandatory for companies to bring the $ back, we'll at least get something. It makes sense, unlike the individual
I wonder if some folks could understand liquid reserves for a megacorp. I wonder if some folks could get that stockholders are a corporations duty and not the US. I suppose many cannot get the notion of Tax Incentives.
Economics is a difficult subject. So it wouldn't' make sense to spend much time talking about it with someone of Mr. Prime's intellectual stature. If you know what I mean.
We’re getting LOGICAL ~ Hxprof, U Reward Tax EVASION by Mnuchin/Wall St ~ Let’s CLOSE Loop-Holes & COMPEL Cash Re-Patriation & Maintain 39% Tax ~ RAISE Min. WAGE so workers get a DIRECT Benefit not the SHAFT ~ Eric, Apple HOARDs 250 Billion
Sure AP, close the loophole AFTER we get the companies to bring the $ they currently have out there. IF we close that loophole though, they'll find other ways to avoid paying a punitive tax. Makes sense, unlike the individual mandate.
So WHY "LOWER" Taxes on Corps/Mnuchins if they NEVER pay 39% or 20% anyway? U make a solid case 4 INCREASING Corp Taxes, they need 2 B PENALIZED 4 Offshore "Tax Evasion" ~ How will O. Hatch X-plain 2 GOD he CUT Medicare 4 Wall St CEO Raises?
If you'd like to chase corporations out the States, then charge them higher than 39%. Why not 50%, or 75%? Even if they pay high rates, they'd pass it along in the cost of their products, but more likely, they'll find a way to evade.
What many don't understand is the FACT that a 1% Tax Rate is UNACCEPTABLE 4 most GREEDY Wall St Corps, so "Degree of GREED" Dictates where they "Set Up SHOP", not the "Tax Rate" ~ Pres Obama Fostered a RECORD 80 MONTHs of Job Growth @ 39%
Bypassing the ludicrous. HxProf and Wesman = do you think that most people are that ignorant? I am thinking that AP is a product of our educational system and he is clueless, completely. Are most Americans just sheeple? Scary.
Eric, CORPs have EXITED the US 4 DECADEs 4 a multitude of reasons & R "FIRING Workers" in favor of AUTOMATION ~ Grocers now have "SELF Checkout" & Banks R AUTOMATED, fewer TELLERs ~ You'll NEVER see a DIME from Trumps/GOP Corp Tax Cut SCAM
Stuff happens AP.....modernization is sometimes painful. Still, the individual mandate is truly evil.
Buggy whips and Caboose Fireman. Coal tenders and Indian traders, Buffalo hunters and trappers. Lumberjacks, shoot even slave traders and "service station" workers.
I guess all gone because of Corporate greed. AP you do not know history at all.
Eric, U & Hxprof should become ACQUAINTED with Basic "IMMORALITY" Fundamentals ~ SLASHING Funds from Vital HealthCARE/MediCARE as Drumpf's SCAM does, is an Unforgivable ABOMINATION ~ Decrepit Orrin Hatch a SUPPORTER, is FLIRTING with Hell
AP that makes a little sense. Maybe you could get more from your notion with "ethics" rather than "morality". Moral is just too nebulous and a judgment of actions. Ethics and duty are more in line with what you are getting at. How to act.
Actually Eric, the "ABOMINATION" aka "Corporate WELAFARE Tax Cut SCAM" that will SABOTAGE ObamaCARE & Cut Essential Medicare Funds our elderly folks depend on 2 PREVENT ILLNESS and or Treat ILLNESS, is WRONG, Immoral, Unethical & CRIMINAL
I think I can see your point, although difficult with your style.
If one believes that the wealthy should pay for the poor. Then you could be right to an extent. I prefer that the wealthy make enough to hire the poor and make them less so.
Eric, the TRUTH is near, but it's not the "RICH Paying 4 the POOR", it's a matter of WHO shoulders the "BURDEN" of Maintaining the USA, her Military & 100's of GLOBAL Satellites ~ Mnuchin who EVADEs Paying Tax or our MEDICARE Recipients
Yet you're in favor of forcing the average American to either buy something or pay a penalty/tax/fee - in essence,FORCING the average American to help finance OTHER people's insurance. Yeah, that's "moral"....RIGHT?
I think Engels had this in mind. Seems Ho Chi Minh had it also. A kind of Locke Utopia. We are as close to a democratic socialistic system as need be.It is good both sides draw a line. But put flies in the ointment taught by Hollywood is not good.
Hxprof, the GOAL is 2 INSURE ALL ~ UNABASHED Trumpeteer Eric, would U follow the "DUMPSTER" 2 Jonestown? When Psychopath Trump/GOP SLASH Medicare & Sabotage HealthCARE 2 Deliver a TRAIN Load of CASH 2 Wall St, Christians call it an ABOMINATION
What you're saying AP, is that the ends justify the means. That's an evil philosophy that I don't think you really believe, yet you're espousing it.
