Typical liberal whining. When in reality these corporations keep our economy afloat, so that you can still have money to buy your hybrids.

Whining? Hardly. It’s called patriotism, but if so-called conservatives have co-opted the very term and replaced its real meaning, never mind actual practice, with symbols, shibboleths, silly labels, PR lapel pins, ribbons — which is nothing more than costuming and posturing, in short advertising — then what truly constitutes pride in one’s country is hopeless. Neither I nor Bernie Sanders is whining; it’s called a “lover’s quarrel.” There is nothing *American* about dodging taxes in the name of greater greed. Even Alexis de Tocqueville noted this in his observations on American democracy in the 19th Century.
Keep our economy afloat? Are you kidding me? No, seriously! Most of these top 10 are in energy or banking, which are doing nothing for the economy. What has NAFTA done but gut the working class of this country of once well-paying jobs now shipped off overseas where workers there are paid a fraction of the former wage, toil in worse, less safe conditions, and where the company pays little to no taxes? That’s not fair or American.

Obviously this isn’t a Liberal Whining thing- I mean ## is MSNBC and numbers 1, 2, 6, 8, and 9 are all HUGE DEMOCRATIC SUPPORTERS who have donated in excess of $12.8 BILLION in campaign donations to the Democratic party… the same party that developed the tax loopholes in 1978 they are exploiting and liberal (although not entirely Democrat driven) “bail-outs” where handed to them.
Want someone to blame? It’s not the GOP.
Sorry, ## should be #3.
