Sen. Rand Paul: America Needs to 'Just Apologize' to Apple for Grilling them Over Taxes
Sen Rand Paul went downright nuclear today in a Senate hearing which attemtped to call Apple on the carpet for not paying more taxes ....
He goes on to say it's Congress, not Apple's fault, they are not paying more in taxes thanks to an overly complicated tax system that encourages businesses to hide away money off shore.
“I’m offended by a government that convenes a hearing to bully one of America’s greatest success stories,” Sen. Paul (R-Ky) said during a Senate committee hearing convened to discuss Apple’s tax practices Tuesday. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is slated to testify in the hearing.
“If anyone should be on trial here, it should be Congress," a fired up Paul told the Senate hearing.
Hard to argue the logic, IMO.
