If ecomony is growing as you claim, the people on food stamps would be decreasing and we would have less people out of work. The ecomony shrunk the last quarter. So that blows a hold in your numbers. Face it barney you're wrong and numbers don't lie."

Wall Street Journal ---------- Bloomberg

NEWS originating from Right leaning publications.

The Wall Street Journal found that the 60 largest companies moved $166 billion offshore in 2012, shielding 40 percent of their earnings from American taxes and costing the U.S. billions in lost revenue:


The amount of money at stake is significant, particularly when the U.S. budget deficit is high on the political agenda. Just 19 of the 60 companies in the Journal’s survey disclose the tax hit they could face if they brought the money back to their U.S. parent. Those companies say they might have to pay $98 billion in additional tax—more than the $85 billion in automatic-spending cuts triggered this month after the White House and Congress couldn’t agree on an alternative.

A similar analysis from Bloomberg found that 83 of the largest American companies moved $183 billion overseas in 2012, bringing the total offshore to $1.46 trillion for those 83 companies alone. Most of the companies, like Apple, Microsoft, and Yahoo, have set up subsidiaries in low-tax countries like Bermuda, Ireland, and the Cayman Islands specifically to receive tax benefits. That has ramifications for states, which lost $42 billion in revenue to corporate tax dodging in the last three years alone, and taxpayers and small businesses, who often have to pick up the tab.

and that 166 billion dollars or 46 trillion doesent belong to the US goverment. I dont blame them for moving their own money where the greedy politicans & parasites can rob it. Its legal for US companies to not bring money that is made elsewhere to the US. There are no cuts. Its simply a small reduction in the growth of future spending. The US goverment will still spend more in 2013 than it did in 2011. Its the goverment robbing(taxing) that drives money from the USA.

The takers, that is the liberals always worry about everybody elses money. That is money that they are not getting the opportunity to get their hands on and redistribute to those who are too lazy to get out there and earn it for themselves. You will always have the Barneys of the world watching your money for you..

Before the President takes one more dime from taxpayers, he needs to look in the mirror and deal with the billions he's wasted under the false pretense of "helping people."
Thanks for continuing to prove what a hypocrite you are and you didn't even need me to set a trap for you this time! You're coming along well, Stuart!

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Retail sales rose solidly in February as Americans bought automobiles and other goods even as they paid more for gasoline, suggesting consumer spending this quarter will hold up despite higher taxes.

The Commerce Department said on Wednesday retail sales increased 1.1 percent, the largest rise since September, after a revised 0.2 percent gain in January.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected retail sales to rise 0.5 percent last month after a previously reported 0.1 percent gain in January.

So-called core sales, which strip out automobiles, gasoline and building materials and correspond most closely with the consumer spending component of gross domestic product, rose 0.4 percent after advancing 0.3 percent in January.

U.S. stock index futures erased earlier losses, while prices for Treasury debt fell. The dollar rose against the yen and extended gains versus the euro.

The retail sales data was the latest to suggest momentum in the economy as fiscal policy tightened, marked by the end of a 2 percent payroll tax cut and an increase in tax rates for wealthy Americans on January 1.

Job gains accelerated in February and manufacturing put in its best performance in 1-1/2 years.

"The data add to the view that the U.S. economy continues to show reassuring resilience in the face of fiscal headwinds, and that consumers will help drive a further upturn in the economy in the first quarter," said Chris Williamson, chief economist at Markit.

The gains in core sales in the first two months of the year offered hope that consumer spending would probably not slow much this quarter after growing at a 2.1 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of the U.S. economy.

That should help boost economic growth after output barely expanded in the last three months of 2012.

Barclays raised its first-quarter growth estimate by three tenths of a percentage point to 2.2 percent after the upbeat retail sales report.

Your ignorance is almost as overwhelming as your hypocrisy.
What does that have to do with Obama wasting taxpayer money? It helps to read what you post before you post it, but with your literacy problems, what should we expect? Thanks for proving my points again!
