Not under this system of Gov't. GE donates way to much to both sides for either to even contemplate killing the golden goose.

Democrats must be pretty comfortable with that too, especially Obama. They have done nothing either to remedy the situation. It's both sides Skippy, that you brain dead liberals fail to comprehend. You think your side is so lily white fcuking pure and free of all sin.

Obama gave a free ride to many corporations, even giving them billions of our tax money so they could go bankrupt and pay the executives their golden parachutes. He even gave some of those executives jobs as Czars in his administration. Guess that is OK with you too.

So what's your bullsh1t complaint now?

Going to a GE plant for anything during lunch, or one of the union inspired breaks is like visiting the hell of no one ever home. The unions have GE by the throat, so any profit is directly related to the lowest common denominator in their employee roles. It's a Commie Democrat Hell! When you do see an employee, they're smug and have this look that tells you if you cross them, or expect them to actually work, they'll crap on you.

What's that got to do with the fact that they don't pay net taxes, you moron? Did you think that just started the minute Obama took office, or was limited to GE??

LOL! Jesus, you're dumb...:)

Here we have an excellent example of Progressive economic thinking.
Instead of cheering the successive of an American turning a profit, we hear complaints. How can anyone be successful, they wonder, without stealing from someone else? They look at the economy as a pie that is presented to everyone. If someone makes more, it must mean someone else has some of their rightful share taken away. They refuse to consider the economy as a pie that is made to be shared. When someone adds to the pie, this does not prevent others from adding to the pie too. The result is a bigger pie for everyone.

I'm ignorant? You stupid fucking moron. We need to tax the shit out of every corporation that pays employees substandard wages and forces them to collect food stamps and housing subsidies. Walmart ring a teabag bell? You and I pay for that as taxpayers. And we need to tax the shit out of their offshore manufacturing if notghing else but to discourage it.. And the CEOs that are overpaid and getting golden parachutes are overwhelmingly teabag Republicans. HYP-O-CRITE bagger nut.

What these companies are doing is paying poorly performing CEO's $40-$50 million after they're fired, holding hundreds of billions of cash reserves and starving workers all over the world:

Corporations carry out some of the most horrific human rights abuses of modern times, but it is increasingly difficult to hold them to account. Economic globalization and the rise of transnational corporate power have created a favorable climate for corporate human rights abusers, which are governed principally by the codes of supply and demand and show genuine loyalty only to their stockholders.

Some foreign workers are paid the equivalent of starvation wages while CEO's who are let go for poor performance take $50 million with them as they leave. Strange world we live in.

Only a company that really lost its way, and a bundle of money, ends up paying little or no taxes for years to come. Nothing to be proud of for the company since it's a sign of failure.

GE does have high labor costs and has to kow-tow to its Union members.
