The question isn't whether or not Boeing complied with US tax laws. They did. The question is how many people did Boeing provide employment for, and how many of those people paid federal taxes. The liberals look at Boeing just as the farmer looked at the goose that laid golden eggs. They are greedy and want to kill the goose that is feeding them.

@Rifleman The question should be, how many politicans did Boeing influence through Super PACS or traditional lobbying effors to encourage politicans to change tax codes to favor corporate interest? I don't think this should be a "liberal" vs "conservative" argument, but a taxpayer vs corporate interestes discussion and what is fair.

I rather doubt all the union employees Boeing hires complain about corporate interest. They all pay taxes on the paychecks Boeing gives them. The question is whether Boeing pays the taxes required by law, and the answer is yes.

I don't like the tax laws either. They reward people who are too lazy to go out and get a job.

Oh how horrible! A dollar not given to the government is a dollar wasted!
