The big corporations all know how to save their money, and not having to pay any taxes. If we would be behaving like them we would end up in jail.

It's actually a crime against humanity when some have so much money and others have nothing to show for their hard work. There is no reason children should be without and hungry in this world.....but the greed has just overcome common sense to the point we have people in the USA that support the greedy people via their votes.

These corporations do get by with anything, Birgit, and it's disgusting. I agree, Janice. this is absolutely a crime against humanity.

This happens everywhere. Big corporations pay next to no taxes with the blessing of governments. It is the middleclass that pays the taxes, but become obsolete when they retire: like, hope you die soon, so the politicians can grab the money.
I know, I am a pensioner!

Thanks for some good news, Judy. The 1st thing is to recognize the problem and name it. Only then can it be changed through great effort and lots of noise from the commoners....with some luck and determination.

I am cautiously optimistic that this massive investigation will lead to some improvement.
