U.S. Corporations Stuff their Pockets with 735+ Billion Dollars Unpaid Taxes

CURRENT EVENT — Share what’s going on!

A report published earlier this month by the Audit Analytics online intelligence service has this week managed to capture the attention of the head of the US Senate’s Finance Committee.

The firm said that their research has led them to determine that 547 American companies are currently holding 2.1 Trillion dollars in profits overseas, reinvesting it tax-free outside of U.S. borders. That’s more than ever before.

While people are aggressively persecuted for protesting tax laws, corporations, who have been legally declared personhood, may use the entirety of their profits to feed their own growth. Furthermore, all the money they stuff themselves with will never be used to fund a decimated middle class, schools and communities, or the planet for that matter.

Yes, that’s 735,000,000,000 — at the U.S. corporate tax rate. [ + ]

Corporations throw Money at GMO Labeling efforts

CURRENT EVENT — Share what’s going on!

Shortly succeeding last weeks news of US Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) introducing the legislation on Wednesday, which is intended to head off bills in about 24 states that would require companies to inform customers when their food is produced using genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Titled the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,” the proposal would forbid states from enacting such proposals.

Now Congress, which also recently complained about being underpaid, considers blocking GMO food labeling efforts because they love the taste of money being thrown at them. [ + ]
