Bernie Accuses Verizon: “Has Not Paid a Nickel in Taxes,” CEO Delivers BRUTUAL SMACKDOWN Response
One certainly needs to give credit where credit is due, and no doubt Bernie Sanders is indeed a self-proclaimed Socialist through and through, and may I add knows nothing about the basic economic principles that drive a free economy!
And perhaps what is even more striking is that ol Bernie doesn’t care, and perhaps is well aware that he knows nothing about basic economic principles, and that’s perhaps why he’s so endearing to his young clueless followers, in that ignorance is indeed bliss!
Moreover to demonstrate how ignorant of the facts he is, Sanders actually took to the streets of New York to join in a demonstration of disgruntled Verizon workers, which of course is what progressives do to endear themselves to those union workers.
However ol Bernie just didn’t quietly march along he actually spoke and of course made news, by how much he doesn’t know stating emphatically that Verizon doesn’t pay its fair share of taxes.
Which of course drew an immediate response from CEO Lowell McAdam, stating; ”As our financial statements clearly show, we’ve paid more than $15.6 billion in taxes over the last two years – that’s a 35% tax rate in 2015, for anyone who’s counting. …”
McAdam added, “I challenge Sen. Sanders to show me a company that’s done more to invest in America than Verizon.”
It seems ol Bernie doesn’t do to well with numbers, perhaps it’s because he’s been living of the government dole for so long with little actual accomplishments…what else would one expect from a self-proclaimed Socialist?
