    One this is sure..there will always be tax and death. Question is, why does our government have to make paying taxes worse than death..

    Talk about naive. You do realize that 2 unpaid wars (tax cuts instead of increases) and some of the lowest rates in decades (I haven't looked in depth for 2012, but they've recently been at historic lows) and redefining what 'income' is to the point where your average working stiff is paying a higher percentage of their income over Wall Street investors and bankers and your average F1000 executives is why the government is strapped, don't you?

    Really? I'm sure you've paid taxes in one form or another, but have you really tried the other?

    Probably one of the sanest comments here yet. Everyone has an obligation to pay all the taxes they owe. Everyone also has no obligation to pay more than that. If you can, through legal means, reduce your tax liability, you are perfectly within your rights to do that. Unless Apple is breaking the law, reducing their tax liability through legal means -- while perhaps morally reprehensible -- is completely legal. If they don't like it, stop redefining 'income' and revising the tax code for your buddies.

    Funny that congress is whining about Apple and not GE or Exxon-Mobil paying little to no taxes. I wonder if it has anything to do with who donates to whom? Looks like more of a congressional shakedown to me: 'start donating to us or we haul you in front of a congressional committee.'

    These loopholes were put there for a reason so Gov could help out their buddies good for Apple using the system to their advantage it is ok if the gov does it but if a reputable company look out save us from big brother.

    Uhhh....you all realize that taxes are what pays for schools, hospitals, police departments, fire departments, roads, streetlights, sidewalks, stoplights, regulations on literally EVERYTHING, right? Next time your house is being set on fire while a rapist is chasing your family the day after your tire blows from driving over a pothole that you couldn't see because there was no streelight to bring it to your attention, don't go crying to the BIG MEAN VULTURES for help, you're the one who didn't want to have to pay for any of it anyway.

    So you are telling me that a County Inspector (not police) is required to have his County vehicle running for 3 hours when he's doing a test at a construction job site?

    Times that by each county, times each construction site times each inspector times 3 hours.

    That was just an example of I overspending.

    We (Ireland) gave Apple a nice low low corporation tax rate (unprecedentedly low) to set up shop here, and we haven't benefited from that either. The make billions and billions and neither the Irish Exchequer nor the IRS see's very much return.

    And LOL at Tim Cook almost quoting Mitt Romney word for word with the response Mitt gave when refusing to show his Tax Returns... all a shower of cowboys Ted.

    Maybe the Senate should close the loopholes. Yes, it's a loophole to avoid paying taxes but it's still a legal method of doing it. We should close the loopholes if you disapprove not go to the papers screaming tax avoidance.

    The last quote makes it seem like Apple has slave labor factories in the U.S. and that they are only making money from hard working Americans. In reality, the taxes they are avoiding paying is on money made in other countries.

    If you make money in Mexico, have a bank account in Mexico, move to the U.S., leave your money in Mexico to be spent when you buy something in Mexico do you really think you should pay U.S. taxes on that money that was not earned, saved, or spent on U.S. soil?

    "Senate Panel Claims Apple Created Offshore Subsidiaries to Avoid Paying U.S. Taxes" (read up on Enron using the same methods as Apple)

    Doing the above can be a crime under US Tax Law and if proven in a trial or if judicial action is taken against Apple, they will pay some hefty fines. Yes!

    The rest of the 'little people' who are financial slaves or suckers can just go back to work now while the corporate elitists, stock market and banking execs along with their government insiders continue to rape our country and our future.

    The 'little people' did not let this happen, it just happened while we sat by and watched. Modern-day Rome is crumbling around the world. Nothing changes.
