    Bryan and Andrew,

    You completely missed the point. Bernie’s complaint was Apple using its position to limit its tax liability. The argument he has been railing on for years is that big companies like Apple do everything they can to get out of paying taxes that would be used to mitigate such issues as homelessness. From that perspective, donating to “help” solve the problem is a PR move to distract from the lack of taxes they pay to various levels of government.

    His complaint is using charity as a substitute to public safety nets paid through taxation.

      “From that perspective, donating to “help” solve the problem is a PR move to distract from the lack of taxes they pay to various levels of government.”

      That’s a government policy problem, not Apple’s. If governments want corporations like Apple to pay their fair share of taxes then they need to change the laws to achieve that.

        But politicians like Bernie are highlighting how companies have been paying less and less taxes over time. We should not be defending Apple’s ability to pay low taxes. Politicians are only able to change laws such as taxation when there is a groundswell of support to drown out the pressure to cave to the interests of large corporations.

    I agree with Bryan that there’s no sin in Apple creating the most successful company on earth & punishing it for something that is no fault of their own is utter horseshit. I’m commend Apple for trying to address the problem but by no means are they obligated to.
