End Offshore Tax Havens: The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that its own analysis of 60 big U.S. companies found that they parked $166 billion offshore last year. A separate Bloomberg analysis published Friday said the largest U.S.-based companies expanded their untaxed offshore stockpiles by $183 billion, a 14.4 percent jump in the past year. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a member of the Senate Budget Committee, has called for closing those tax loopholes to help bring down deficits. “At a time when we have a $16.6 trillion national debt; at a time when roughly one-quarter of the largest corporations in America are paying no federal income taxes; and at a time when corporate profits are at an all-time high, it is past time for corporate America to contribute significantly to deficit reduction,” he said. Do you believe Congress should or should not close loopholes allowing corporations and wealthy individuals to avoid U.S. taxes by shifting income overseas? Take the poll here:

Sen. Bernie Sanders, responding to a Wall Street Journal editorial of May 2, 2012 attacking the United States Postal Service, "In the midst of the worst economic downturn since the 1930s and the collapse of the American middle class, we must do everything we can to prevent the elimination of 220,000 decent-paying jobs at the Postal Service - many of them held by veterans. We also must be mindful that some eight million private-sector jobs, many in small business, are dependent on a strong and universal Postal Service.

But for this prefunding mandate, the Postal Service would have posted a profit of $700 million from 2007-2010 and a $200 million profit in the first quar ...
