Nice try, most companies are moving overseas to get away from the HIGH taxes and regulations including GE in your list. the same GE that Obama gave stimulus money and huge tax breaks to. I know non taxpayer like you don't understand that business not only pays federal taxes, but they also pay
Fire protection taxes
In fact they pay an never ending list of taxes and the uncertainty of federal taxs going up or remianing the same have caused them not to invest bur hold their money,
We have one of the lowest effective tax rates.
That is why these companies actually received money back instead of paying federal taxes between 2008 - 20011
