The article was worth skimming just to get to the actual descriptions and dollar figures of each CEO's tax activity.. For what it's worth.. I don't understand how you pay 0 dollars in, and get a billion dollar refund from the government... Fuckery is afoot.

I am so used to dictating with Siri that I couldn't figure out how that typo got into your comment… I was wondering if you meant to say "ain't", or "hate". Then I realized you meant to write "are".

You so much as admit that the article has good information, so what's bothering you about it really? :)

Wonderful -- I really LIKE and respect that man. He does exactly what he says, which is extraordinary for a politician. I especially like how he actually called out BY NAME, with points to back it up in every case, the 18 CEO's worthy of our shame. Read it for yourself.

Agreed. Company (small business) I work for uses Verizon. I'm not sure any CEO of any other telco is any better but I will do my best to have us change providers. Guess that's all we can do, is boycott these mofos.

Some of them are difficult to do, which is where the reform is needed. Some telecoms are basically monopolies in certain areas, I live in NYC and the MTA is a monopoly on public transport, you can't really go "I'm going to boycott insurance!" because it's a necessity and almost the entire industry is abusing that fact, etc.

That's where the idea of taxpayer funded programs come into play as an idea to either create competition or remove a corrupt industry, as vicious as that sounds.

My company was using Verizon, too... Our clients weren't able to call us for close to two months because they couldn't figure out what the problem was with our phone service. We couldn't run credit cards because of their internet issues. Then, they tried to charge close to 2k in fees for 'helping us' during the two months we couldn't do business (and all that was only part of the problem!)

I've been really impressed with Republic Wireless. They use Sprint cell towers (looking to get on T-Mobile's network as well) so I'm not sure if that's a deal breaker or not, but they are one of the better cellular companies I've used. And now that they've introduced a good and affordable phone (Moto E for $130 with no contract) and their pricing plan where you only pay $10 for cellular and text then $15 per gig of data which they pay you the difference of for any data you don't use... they're really a no-brainer. My bill this month is going to probably be around $11.50 with taxes.

Too bad what he does and says will just make things worse for Americans , not better

the 18 CEO's worthy of our shame

Name-calling is the only thing Sanders has because the reality is, those CEOs have done nothing wrong and that what Sand’s is calling for is a violation of their rights an thus immoral ... as well as doomed to fail as we see with such similar policies n Europe which is now in economic flames

Why are we blaming the CEOs for doing what's best for their own businesses? The government is who is at fault here for allowing and encouraging this behavior. So maybe Bernie could stop pointing fingers and take some responsibility for being part of the government.

Both are to blame, not just the government. When your company is knowingly evading taxes by using offshore accounts, that ain't the government assisting you, honey.

Yes, because our laws allowing the ability to evade taxes are the fault of the companies.

Nice slender, but using legal tax loopholes is not "evading taxes". CEOs don't give themselves bailouts and tax loopholes, politicians do, Bernie The Commie Sanders might want to call them out instead.

There is a great book called "Senator for Sale," that chronicles former KS Sen. Bob Dole doing the writing of the loopholes for cronies and contributors.

I fully realize that this is a case of multiple people on "both sides" that do it, but all parties to this are equally corrupt. No CEO or Board of a corporation wakes up in the morning and reads the papers about how a new tax law just happens to benefit them expressly and specifically.

Heard that a lot about America and a black man running it. "He'll never survive the first year in the white house." He was literally getting death threats as a junior Senator. If Bernie gets any, it would only be fair that he get secret service too.
