    Once the Senate condemn its members for their misuse of public funds and their tax avoidance schemes (John Kerry purchasing his giant Yacht in New Hampshire rather than his home state of Mass to avoid $500,000 in sales tax - - this goes on day in and day out in the Senate and the executive branch (Obama paid 20.5% in 2012 - - lower than his secretary ) - and Obama's friend GE pays no imcome tax in the US at all - they follow the law and pay accountants to shelter their taxes - how hypercritical to fault Apple for doing the exact same thing - while paying over $6,000,000,000 in US taxes
    If there is a fault it is the tax law with all of it's loopholes that the Senate has passed to reward their major donors
