Isn't it amazing that the 2.5 trillion bailout could have abolished student loan debt..... 2 times over?


But the bailout loans got paid back.

Student Loans often times are not paid back.

Hmmm.

18 CEOs Called Out By Bernie Sanders For Taking Trillions In Bailouts, Evading Taxes, and Outsourcing Jobs



This is happening. And ordinary people are paying attention.
You all anti-Bernie folks can just keep carrying on....
but, the facts are that Bernie is reaching the people who are not Holy Rollers and are likewise not Wall Street Cheats.



Bernie Sanders is the underdog in the American political race, but he’s quickly gaining momentum as a prime candidate to lead the US, as his no-nonsense, candor approach is appreciated by many – especially the millennial generation.




Remaining true to his promise to serve the people as a politician, Sanders responded to the lecture from the American CEOs by releasing a report detailing how 18 of them have helped blow up the deficit and wreck the economy outsourcing jobs and evading US taxes.
The list of 18 CEOs follows:



1) Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $1.9 billion tax refund.

Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department? Over $1.3 trillion.

Amount of federal income taxes Bank of America would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $2.6 billion.

2) Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2008? Zero. $278 million tax refund.

Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department? $824 billion.

Amount of federal income taxes Goldman Sachs would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $2.7 billion

3) JP Morgan Chase CEO James Dimon
Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department? $416 billion.

Amount of federal income taxes JP Morgan Chase would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $4.9 billion.

4) General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $3.3 billion tax refund.

Taxpayer Bailout from the Federal Reserve? $16 billion.

Jobs Shipped Overseas? At least 25,000 since 2001.

5) Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $705 million tax refund.

American Jobs Cut in 2010? In 2010, Verizon announced 13,000 job cuts, the third highest corporate layoff total that year.

6) Boeing CEO James McNerney, Jr.
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? None. $124 million tax refund.

American Jobs Shipped overseas? Over 57,000.

Amount of Corporate Welfare? At least $58 billion.

7) Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
Amount of federal income taxes Microsoft would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $19.4 billion.

8) Honeywell International CEO David Cote
Amount of federal income taxes paid from 2008-2010? Zero. $34 million tax refund.

9) Corning CEO Wendell Weeks
Amount of federal income taxes paid from 2008-2010? Zero. $4 million tax refund.

10) Time Warner CEO Glenn Britt
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2008? Zero. $74 million tax refund.

11). Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2009? Zero. $55 million tax refund.

12) Deere & Company CEO Samuel Allen
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2009? Zero. $1 million tax refund.

13) Marsh & McLennan Companies CEO Brian Duperreault
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2010? Zero. $90 million refund.

14) Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs
Amount of federal income taxes Qualcomm would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $4.7 billion.

15) Tenneco CEO Gregg Sherill
Amount of federal income taxes Tenneco would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $269 million.

16) Express Scripts CEO George Paz
Amount of federal income taxes Express Scripts would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $20 million.

17) Caesars Entertainment CEO Gary Loveman
Amount of federal income taxes Caesars Entertainment would have owed if offshore tax havens were eliminated? $9 million.

18). R.R. Donnelly & Sons CEO Thomas Quinlan III
Amount of federal income taxes paid in 2008? Zero. $49 million tax refund.





As PoliticusUSA discloses, eighteen of the 80 CEOs who signed the call for deficit action are actually some of the biggest outsourcers and tax cheats in America. Not only did they crash the economy in 2008, they followed that incident by taking billions in taxpayer bailout dollars.





Yeah. So. That.
Who among us is earnestly rootng for Jamie Dimon and all those .... other cheaters?? Right here on ATS? Who do you think belongs in prison?

Please, speak up.
I'd like to understand your mentality.

Thanks for reading.



I can't wait to see good old boy Bernie's donor list if he becomes the Dem nominee. Obama took money from just about every company on that list. You think Bernie and his superpac's wouldn't take their money too?

I'm not sure which is funnier. The personal attack or the idea that you seem to think I live in a household with more than $100,000 in income.

Not to mention that Obama and the Democrats took over all student loans early on in his presidency. These days, students loans are a government venture. The money you take out for your higher education comes from the government and is owed back to the government.

Think of it as another tax ... with interest.

I'm relatively lucky in that most of my loans were still held through a private, small credit union.

My husband is through the government lending houses. So, we pay income tax AND we pay his loans + interest to the government. It's a double tax.

So, yes, theoretically the government COULD pay off student loans, but since they represent a source of revenue for a government that is badly in debt, WHY would they? And for those paying student loans, you pay the government out both ends: one your loans and at tax time. It's a great racket for the government who then makes all sorts of noises about how horrible your plight is and how they "care" about you.

Yes, it is!! And it's amazing that some Americans think the money we spend bombing and bullying other countries is better spent that way than taking care of our own.

You're always whining about being stripped of everything, which isn't happening. Always with the "I'm being forced!" when you aren't.

No worries, though - I mean you in the 'general' sense of 'you' (like 'you people'). If you are earning a middle income, then you don't need to WORRY ABOUT BEING STRIPPED of everything. You complained that you can't have steak. I suggested some remedial tactics that would allow you to do so.

If that's a personal attack in your mind, there's nothing I can do about that except to keep telling you to relax.

Hmmm.



And current student loan DEBT stands at over $1.2 trillion dollars.

Which means they haven't been paid back so that others get the same 'opportunity' for an education that is more often than naught not worth the diploma they are printed on.

Oh but he has.

From Unions that derives their income from people working for them.

And why do you think that is, neo??

People can't afford it. So - I guess you trash Bernie's idea of making college available to everyone....
which in my dream world would mean forgiving those student loans, and SLAPPING THE BAIL-OUT RECIPIENTS with the taxes they should pay, but don't.

Did you not even read the OP????

They are using loopholes to get away with NOT PAYING taxes. Why that is okay with you is beyond me. And why you would prefer to keep the MIC going over ensuring that our own citizens' needs are met is also beyond me.

Anyway, yeah. No point in continuing to point out things that you refuse to see.

They can't ?

Who the hell needs a college degree anymore when all the Sanders have to do is 'raise' the minimum wage ?

Whats MORE who the hell needs a union either.





Unions are not Corporate SuperPACs.


They are a special interest LIKE any other that throw BILLIONS to buy politicians.

Same EXACT thing.

And we push college as the only acceptable way to "make it" these days without counseling on what good diplomas or even if the kid in question ought to be getting a diploma, so you wind up with a lot of kids in soft degree options that will only earn them an expensive piece of paper that isn't worth the money they now owe to the government and they go out in the world and wind up not being able to make ends meet and wind up at Occupy Wall Street blaming the bankers when they really ought to be blaming the government who holds their pink slip.

In my opinion and experience, learning a trade is more valuable in today's climate than getting a degree.

Sanders gets a D- from the NRA.

Why yes people the second,fourth, and 14th amendment rights of gun owners are of no consequence for Sanders.

Such a 'FREEDOM' loving person ain't he?

Ole Bernie is a totalitarian like his brethren.

So?

Our household has a regular arsenal of guns, and we're STILL behind Bernie.
What is it with you and guns and military might?

There's no way the government can take "all of our guns". Just like they can't put us all in "FEMA camps". That is not going to happen. Ever.

Ever.

There are as many guns in this country as there are people. And please don't drag the topic off-point.
If that's all you got left, start your own Bernie-Bashing thread. Mkay??

The 'SO' is this.

I don't particularly like having to ask the government permission before I can buy what the constitution says every Americans has a right to.

But not just one right that is afforded to us, but in the entire Bill of Rights extending to the 14 amendment.

I don't personally think the US constitution is just a GD piece of paper. Like Sanders. That gives the STATE the RIGHT to violate the constitutional protections of whoever it damn well pleases.

Now that is a twofer in with this.

Them EVIL RICH, and gun owners.

And Especially so when that GOVERNMENT is one of the largest arms dealers in the world. Going around ARMING whoever it pleases. While denying me, and other Americans RIGHTS that have been clearly laid out.

BESIDES ALL THAT.

Society already has a LAW that says X can't going around killing Y. So Gun control and 'tougher' background checks THAT ARE CLEARLY unconstitutional are superfluous.

But who really cares right ?

Sanders seems to 'walk on water', and I have heard that song, and dance before. Hasn't turn out too well for the past 8 years.

For crying out loud even cash for clunkers won't take older cars. Why are you even suggesting that we buy older cars so that we can be taxed more on our income? Socialists really are all practically alike in their collectivist ideals.
