Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 12, 2019

It is obvious GOP has used the bait and switchero on us and we are all just realizing the extent of the deception as we all endeavor to pay our taxes by Monday. Notice everything is in the news EXCEPT the TAX SCAM the gop perpetrated. I am retired and declare single and zero. I HAVE A TAX BILL for the first time in a long time. As much as they try to put lipstick on this pig, I HAVE TO PAY MORE so you can have your tax cuts!!!

I hear you, Fresno. You are not alone in your frustration:

You paid taxes. These corporations didn't.

"The specter of big corporations avoiding all income taxes on billions in profits sends a strong and corrosive signal to Americans: that the tax system is stacked against them, in favor of corporations and the wealthiest Americans," Gardner wrote in the report.

‘I don't see that being fair'

The Moline, Illinois-based Deere, which was started in 1837 by blacksmith John Deere, who made farming plows, reported earning $2.15 billion in U.S. income before taxes. It owed no U.S. taxes in 2018 and reported that it was owed $268 million from the government, after taking into consideration various deductions and credits, according to its annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company reported global profits of $2.37 billion.

Asked about the rebate, Brian Moens, one longtime Deere employee, was contemplative. "Everyone should pay their fair share whether it is an individual or a corporation," he said. "If just the small individuals are paying it without large corporations doing their part, I don't see that being fair."
