Boeing's wartime tax rate: less than zero

===
Boeing was in this group. The company made $9.7 billion in profits in
2008, 2009 and 2010. It paid nothing in federal taxes, booking $178
million back from the government in various credits, for a total
federal tax rate of -1.8 percent.

"I think in testimony I heard earlier that Boeing would like lower
taxes," said Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif. "How much lower could you
possibly need?"



nothing but failed arguments from the right...top to bottom
anybody really believe this election is close???
