Why Corporations Pay Less Taxes Than You, Part 2

We’ve been talking about how some American companies are using loopholes to avoid paying U.S. taxes. We’re not the only ones.

We recently did an article and video called “Why Corporations Pay Less Taxes than You,” followed by a story called “Banks Make $1 Billion Helping US Firms ‘Move’ Overseas.” Both stories invited lots of commentary. 

While they probably didn’t get the idea from us, both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert recently weighed in on the same topic. Both videos are funny, at least if you can laugh about corporations helping themselves to all our country offers while using loopholes to avoid paying for it. 

Here’s Jon Stewart.

If you want to see Stephen Colbert’s take, you can find it here.
