Senator Bernie Sanders called out a group of the top US CEOs Thursday in a new report revealing top corporate tax dodgers in the US and urged those dodgers to 'look in the mirror' for the causes of America's ballooning deficit.

The report followed a joint statement issued Thursday morning by the top 80 US CEOs, pleading to Congress for a deficit reduction plan that would include cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and a decrease in taxes "for the top 2%."


Just another day at the office.

Sanders reveals how many of the CEOs who issued the statement have evaded at least $34.5 billion in taxes through more than 600 subsidiaries in the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens since 2008.



Can somebody tell me, would $34.5 billion help out Planned Parenthood?

Roughly a dozen of their companies did not pay federal income taxes at all in recent years and some received an additional $6.4 billion in tax refunds from the IRS since 2008. Many of the companies were among those who received the $2.5 trillion from the Federal Reserve following the banking industry induced financial crisis.


Refunds? Heck, even I want a refund!

As we noted in reviewing previous claims about Romney’s investments in China, the investments involved are indirect and -- as far as anybody has said -- made without the knowledge of the account holder.

In fact Kman,, in regards to a previous question, one of THE things that bugs me about obama is he thinks "middle America" grosses 250K a year average.

Hes said that repeatedly since his campaign. I know a lot of folks that consider themselves middle class, and NONE of them gross 250K a year. There is obama and then there's reality..

It is helpful that Curt (and others?) regularly posts the FiveThirtyEight polling analysis. "Comment is free, but facts are sacred" - C.P. Scott, editor of the Guardian, one of the world's most widely-respected newspapers, for almost 50 years.

Ron, two things:

1) The CEOs mentioned above will vote the Romney ticket. That's because they know they'll get the cuts to medicare, -cade, and SS, plus the 20% off their taxes.

2) Obama never said middle class average was $250k. When he talks about tax cuts, he says those earning less than $250k.


But funny you should mention that. What figure to you suppose Romney uses to describe "middle class"?

another complete bullshit statement from Ron

Ok, prove it

prove that the President said that he believes that "middle America grosses 250K a year average'

and, you say that the President has said that numerous times

so it should be EASY for you to quickly find it

Hawkeye...got a $1,000 you wanna lose.

I say Obama wins.


"Collectively, the new polls of the past 24 hours have done nothing to change the standings in the most crucial battleground states. Obama continued to hold leads of 2 to 3 percentage points in Ohio, Iowa, Nevada and Wisconsin, four states that currently combine with the states where Obama leads by larger margins to create a 277 electoral vote majority, seven more than the 270 needed to win."

From Five thirty eight.

That's not true.

Trump is asking for Obama to deliver to him all of his college records, including his college applications, and all of his passport records.

Romney hasn't released his college records or passport records either, and no one is asking him to.

This is stupid. Who keeps their college applications? And what are passport records? What else do you get besides your passport and the visa stamps that some countries sometimes choose to stamp in it?

Trump is taking through his ass again, and so are you.

NEW YORK—In a blockbuster announcement today, Donald Trump announced that he is a very sad man who has nothing to live for other than drawing attention to himself. "I'm a sad, pathetic human being and a complete waste of life," said Trump, adding that he lives an empty existence, and that he is nothing more than a corporate shill, as well as a failed husband, father, and human being. "I am the piece of sh#t you stepped in on your way to work. I am the vomit that hurls out of your mouth when you are sick. I want to kill myself very badly. Thank you." Trump then slit his throat from ear to ear.

Yes, the President, a magna c#m laude graduate of Harvard law and editor the law review, is clearly trying to hide something about his academic achievements. Clearly, he's not REALLY smart, I mean c'mon he's bla...I mean, let's see the birth certifica...wait, ummm uhhhh (wingnut brain asplodes at this point)

Yet Romney, in contrast to every modern presidential candidate, including his own father, refuses to release his tax returns. A man with known offshore bank accounts and an IRA so large that it appears impossible to have been legitimately achieved.

But clearly, it is the President that "has more to hide".

Hawkeye...keep f*#kin' that chicken, buddy.

Anyone that can listen to all 12 minutes of this and still vote for the a-hole deserves to have their human race card revoked.

Romney is the one making those claims.
