Apple paid only 2% corporation tax outside US

Anyone else feel they should only pay 2-2.5% on their taxes?

Apple paid less than 2% corporation tax on its profits outside the US, its filing with US regulators has shown.

But Apple isn't an oil company, so it doesn't matter. Oh, and, Apple is Democrat friendly so that doesn't matter either. Only Bain Capital, Exxon, Chevron, and Texaco matter. Oh and let's not forget the most evil bastards of them all: Koch Industries!

You mean Apple outsources and has subsidiaries in foreign countries so they don't have to pay U.S. tax rates? Could it be that they are not 'paying their fair share' to 'spread the wealth'?
Is Apple the same company that was selling their latest toy in a store in mid Manhattan last week with people waiting on line for 3 hours to buy it while people in Staten Island had no shelter, food, water gasoline?

Steve "Outsource" Jobs would be turning over in his grave. That 2% could have bought another ...

The company, like all the others, is doing nothing illegal.
Why are you all upset at Apple ?

They are taking advantage of various taxes in various countries and using them to their advantage.
What person, company wouldn't do that ?

You think they exist to pay taxes so that social welfare programs can be funded ?

Those are called I-tards

Jobs was a genius. An evil one with near slaves living in barracks China and ZERO taste shown in that absolutely HIDEOUS yacht he bought. But he was a marketing/ Toy designing genius.

The Apple Godhead, Steve Jobs, sat next to Obama at dinner once so it is O.K. for Apple to minimize taxes.
