Re: Taxes versus Philantropy


"Amazon (not Bezos, Amazon), will deduct this from the taxes they hardly pay and thus the government will need to borrow whatever amount that can be deducted by Amazon anyway."

So the gov who spends more than it takes would take less if it stole more? That has never been demonstrated. The gov spaffing money on shiny toys and their pet projects has been demonstrated. Amazon putting the money where they consider it needed by their own choice.

Put another way you consider your money well spent looking after you and your family? Is anyone dumb enough to think if the gov had that money they would think the same?
