These studies are always halfass political hacks trying to stir up a subject they know nothing about.
Take Verizon for example. While they did get a refund, they did pay taxes. I got a refund.... and I paid tens of thousands in taxes. All together
their total tax payments on $5.25 billion in profit was $1.79 billion in taxes.
Most of the Government subsidies were directly involved with government contract provisions directing Verizon to use resources to construct
infrastructure (3g internet coverage and expanded wireless telecommunications).
