Representative Vicky Hartzler (r), today via Twitter, on the sad, sad lot of a few large American corporations:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

The Admin. wants to punish U.S. companies who move abroad. Why don’t they just stop their onerous policies which are pushing them away?! 1:37 PM – 23 Sep 2014

Does that mean “punishment” as in no longer allowing them to claim tax breaks if they move overseas? Just asking.

Maybe if we all gave them a hug?

There were replies:

.@RepHartzler “onerous policies” like paying taxes? If companies want speech protections of individuals, can shoulder tax burden as well 1:40 PM – 23 Sep 2014

@RepHartzler I thought corporations are people. Real people pay taxes why shouldn’t corporations?

Uh, yep.
