Panama papers

Pretty interesting. I wonder what Americans we know are involved in this tax fraud issue.

Look who called this in 2011.

You probably don't realize Obama and Hillary pushed the FTA to be passed even though they were warned about the potential of money laundering if it passed.

Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed for a Bush administration-negotiated free trade agreement And Congress ratifying the pact,

There all in on it but the working class are the only Americans paying the Taxes we owe ... funny how that works

I would be shocked if the Clinton's are not involved in this but more shocked if the Bush's are .
This has the very real potential of being the biggest story in a very long time . A lot of very wealthy people are very worried .

Secure borders? Sure. How about ending Citizens United and tax loopholes that the super rich use to dodge taxes so the lower and middle class don't have to shoulder the weight of the tax burden ?

Yeah... Let's blame Mexican immigrants for stealing all the landscaping jobs.

Check out the Western Union (or money wiring equivalent) on Welfare payday and see how many people are sending money back home? (sometimes the same people whip out the EBT card to pay for their groceries and drive away in a Lexus or Mercedes!

I am a legend in my own mind!

The cash drain from Corperate tax dodging far outweighs what you are talking about.. But this is how the GOP propaganda machine works. The super rich telling the not so rich to tell the even less rich that they are as rich as they are ever going to be and that the reason for that is because of the poor who are trying to survive.

So, how about not ignoring one due to the other. I say go after the law breakers first. The ones that are a burden to OUR children learning. The coporations aren't going around killing, raping, and robbing our citizens. That seems like a pretty important issue to me.
And they do keep wages down which ironically the corporations benifit from also.

The people who don't see illegal immigration as a problem. I doubt the impact of more than 11 million people on society is lower than what ever loopholes corporations use legally. Besides the Democrats allow for the same loopholes since if they wanted to do something about then the would have. Let's not forget the Democrats helped create these Panama Papers.

I love it, blame dems for a republican led policy over the law evaders and hackers.

When asked why we're not seeing Americans show up in this leak, one expert's response was that there are so many options they don't need to go to Panama.

The policy didn't create the problem, it just gave it an alternative place to hide.

The leak came from a company that is only the fourth largest company that deals in offshore accounts and from what I have read there are many many Americans that are involved in this leak .

It's why we need comprehensive reform. Illegals cause some harm for sure but also are an asset in many ways.

An asset for the Democratic gerrymandering. Look at the classrooms, courtrooms and emergency rooms which we all pay for.

Roofing perhaps but people still benefit. Fact is most Americans don't want to pick lettuce or clean rooms. Not at that wage. So many business owners complain they can't get enough help.
