I think companies go over seas for the cheep labor more than anything.TSF, what would be "fair share"? Google moved here the county traded tax break for job opportunity, real estate went up, etc...Look at the "fees" trucking companies pay to use the nations highways. I'm not trying to pick a fight, I guess I would need to become a IRS agent to figure out fair share. Everyone had a fit over John Kerry and his boat issue on the tax. I worked on a boat registered in the Virgin Islands because the US tax is so high. I guess I don't blame people for trying to use the tools available to them to keep more of their money. That's why I clip coupons. I've tried to read up on the tax thing, you go over seas, you pay that country for that cheap labor, etc..
And yes, people do try to cheat the system by moving money out of America. Just as some try to cheat the system by living of welfare when they could be working.
Neither is the right thing to do or is good for the whole of our society.
Some are just greedy. Would google go out of business if it stayed in America? No, they just want all the money humanly possible because they are greedy.
Companies can go overseas to avoid regulations that keep people safe at work. These companies do not care about humans, they only care about money.
There will always be a cheaper way overseas. Why? Because America is not going to allow greedy companies to work humans like slaves.
Republicans want to go back to the days of children working in sweatshops for eighteen hour days in conditions that often lead to death.
Yes, this will make a few people very wealthy. So? Are you willing to put children and adults back in the days of a hundred years ago, or are you going to act humane and vote for those who care about humans instead of just the almighty dollar for a few?
