Just like only a moron/liberal would take one contributing factor like taxes and claim it was the only thing that caused the economy to swing only a moron/liberal would think that a small business owner would only buy a new truck to save taxes..........LOL
Yes moron/liberal..........They also get to drive the truck..........LOL.......But the main reason they bought it was taxes....
Does Microsoft use its research center here in Mexico???
YES
Is the main reason why they opened it here was for the tax savings???
Yes.......
But what do you expect from a moron that claims a AR is more powerful than hunting rifles.....

Yes moron, but taxes are seldom the main consideration for most business moves, if you look at the real reasons companies relocate or open new branches in foreign countries taxes are usually towards the bottom of the list....LOL

But we would not expect a psycho who claims a civilian version of a military AR is "a pop gun..." to know that

Nicoliae!!! That was betond stupid! Just like you, that did not prove anything other than you are an individual whose perception of reality is so distorted that no amount of logic, reason, or compassionate pleading can sway them from supporting the oblamer administration.
Someone who is a master of their own delusions to the point where they exist in the dual planes of true and false realities, often exhibiting extreme mood swings resulting from the conflicts of planar coexistence and living in an impenetrable state of constant denial. The delusionist often has a hard time interpreting non-verbal communication, and in some extreme cases, straight-forward verbal communication, when it contradicts their false reality. Along with their failure to take even the most obvious of hints, they often have a high opinion of themselves and are obsessed with keeping their ego over-inflated to compensate for their numerous inadequacies. In an effort to illustrate some degree of normalcy, and to offset his or her frequent visitations to the false reality when relating to a particular subject matter, the delusionist will have a tendency to point out and/or over-emphasize any incident or situation that is merely a mediocrity in the true reality.

Too bad that ignorant morons like you have not yet figured out that the "save billion on taxes" line is just a way for most companies to placate the media and to throw off competitors off the scent, it is no different than when the CEO of a major company is quietly shown the door, the reason often given is "he is leaving to pursue other interests..." LMAO

But we would not expect a psycho who says an AR style of weapon used to kill 20 first graders and 6 adults is just " a pop gun" to understand that...

Not a trick question.
The biggest part of it goes to fund medicare, SSI and the military. There are billions wasted in those programs. Obama and the Dems paid off the unions, their donors, wasted billions on green energy companies, and on and on we go.

Examples of wasteful spending highlighted in “Wastebook 2012” include:

• Tax loopholes for the National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL) and Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA)– professional sports leagues that generate billions of dollars annually in profits ($91 million in taxes)

• Moroccan pottery classes (part of a $27 million grant from U.S. Agency for International Development)

• Efforts to promote caviar consumption and production ($300,000)

• Robotic squirrel named “RoboSquirrel”(part of a $325,000 grant from the National Science Foundation)

• Promotion of specialty shampoo and other beauty products for cats and dogs ($505,000)

• Corporate welfare for the world’s largest snack food producer, PepsiCo Inc.($1.3 million)

• Government-funded study on how golfers might benefit from using their imagination, envisioning the hole is bigger than it actually is ($350,000)

•“Prom Week,” a video game that allows taxpayers to relive prom night ($516,000)

• Oklahoma’s layover boondoggle, a scarcely used airport in Oklahoma receiving nearly half-a-million in taxpayer dollars only to transfer funds elsewhere in the state ($450,000)

• The 2012 Alabama Watermelon Queen tour paid for in part by the U.S. Department of Agriculture,“to promote the consumption of Alabama’s watermelon through appearances of the Alabama Watermelon Queen at various events and locations”($25,000)

No you didn't. You made some bizarre assumptions without showing causation. You leave out many other important factors in your assumptions. Such as: government debt, capital gains, corporate tax rates, etc.
