Intersting of Doctor Roy to use GE as an example: GE may be the single biggest beneficiary of the Obama administration. Jeffrey Immelt the CEO sits on the administration's economic council. Coincidentally (I'm sure) * GE make the new mercuryladen lightbulbs that we're being FORCED to buy. * GE makes the batteries for the exploding Volt. * GE has availed itself of every GREEN tax break and subsidy that was created. That's the main reason why they paid zero taxes last years. Other companies that had no such cozy relationship w/ Dear Leader got hammered by the IRS.

Uhhh I didn't use GE as an example. Ransom did.

Obviously, when the cost of taxes (and tax preparation) are passed on to consumers, the increase in price will limit the goods sold and cut into the company's profit. Sad that Mr. Ransom had to explain that to the good Doctor Roy.

Earl it was a rhetorical question. I already know that's what they do. I got a feeling that you, Ransom, and everyone else knows it too.

If Corporations don't really pay income taxes- but instead pass it on to consumers- if a particular corporation pays little or no income tax (and there are many of them) could it then be possible that they are just using the statutory rate instead of their actual rate as an excuse to raise prices and outsource jobs overseas?- Obama's Solution to High Taxes: Even Higher Taxes

Dear Comrade Roy,

To paraphrase the movie Billy Madison, I think we are all a little dumber for having...
