#Apple hit with $15 billion tax bill, #EU socks it to the #poor

Apple’s Tim Cook advocates for big, authoritarian-style government yet doesn’t put his shareholder’s money where his mouth is (thankfully).

Perhaps the authoritarians in the EU should become competitive in terms of tax policy instead of using corporations to stealthily raise taxes on the citizens of the EU. Of course, all the people saying, “yeah, sock it too Apple” seem not to realize they are really saying, “yeah, sock it to everyone buying Apple products – particularly the poor who will pay a much larger percent of their income for these extra taxes.”

It is odd how all the supposed champions of the little guy want them to pay more taxes or have to forgo the newest tech. Do they really just want to keep the poor from having the latest tech and the ability to compete with the elites?
