Does anyone know how many loopholes and shelters Haliburton and all her subsidiaries have that help her keep even more of your tax dollars?

Well if nothing else, you might have to ask some foreign government how much taxes they pay, they moved their headquarters out of this country remember.

They still have some US subsidiaries that must pay US taxes, but first the US army has to get a fair accounting which is proving difficult.

Come on now, Halliburton lent us their CEO, and now we actually ask them to pay taxes after that patriotic sacrifice. They gave us the genius of Dick Cheney,
and we expect more?

Has the news gotten so slow, or has McCain gotten far enough ahead, that ya'll gotta start pounding the Haliburton nail again?

Good grief. Find something nice to say about your own folks (if you can) for once instead what's bad about the other folks.

It doesn't matter where their HQ is, or even if they have one. They are a domestic corporation and will thus pay taxes like any other US company.

If you want to know how much income tax they paid, look up their financials, they are a publically traded company, I'm pretty sure their audited annual finacials are readily available.
