    US corporations have $1.4tn hidden in tax havens, claims Oxfam report

    "Overall, the use of tax havens allowed the US firms to reduce their effective tax rate on $4tn of profits from the US headline rate of 35% to an average of 26.5% between 2008 and 2014.

    The charity said this had helped firms spend billions on an “army” of lobbyists calling for greater state support in the form of loans, bailouts and guarantees, funded by taxpayers.

    The top 50 US firms spent $2.6bn between 2008 and 2014 on lobbying the US government, Oxfam said.

    “For every $1 spent on lobbying, these 50 companies collectively received $130 in tax breaks and more than $4,000 in federal loans, loan guarantees and bailouts,” said Oxfam."

    I know an ex-CIA agent (I believe he was an analyst). He absolutely hates Snowden. I love bring it up and tell him how f-ing wrong he is, that the gov has no right to spy on everyone.
