Brandon Fradd:  “It’s interesting that corporations want the right to have freedom of speech as citizens (Citizens United) and to have freedom of religion as citizens (Hobby Lobby), but not to pay taxes as citizens.  Somehow they are extraordinary entities that we, the American public, must ‘persuade’ to support the country.  Is this why America was founded — to cater to corporations?”

Brandon references this New York Times discussion:  ”How Can the U.S. Stop Corporate Tax Flight?”
