Liberal senator Carl Levin is a crook like his friend Harry Reid who stole our tax money to give gifts to his granddaughter and his voters. Caterpillar is a great American company that follow the tax rules and do not owe the Obama regime a penny. Liberals are pushing America to bankruptcy buy spending trillions on buying votes of the Mozlem Brother terrorists that Obama invited to come to America and live on the American people back.

Two things are certain: Death & Taxes.

We live our entire lives doing what we can to avoid BOTH of those.

Caterpillar is no different.

big companies have entire tax depts., including hi priced lawyers, that make sure everything they do is legal. why would they not use strategy that prevents being over taxed? The money they saved was probably returned to their shareholders as dividends, and that is the way it should be.

No surprise that another lie-beral politician is targeting a successful corporation for a hefty levy to boost gov't coffers. Demoncraps have gone from tax-N-spend to extort-N-steal........

An FYI to the idiotic Rightie trolls stinking up this thread who have clearly not READ the article:
"Sen. Carl Levin says Caterpillar has avoided paying $2.4 billion in U.S. taxes since 2000 by shifting profits to a wholly-controlled affiliate in Switzerland."
That's tax fraud, losers. Read it and weep.
