Here’s just another example of Your Tax dollars at work in Iraq. The Boston Globe reports:
Top Iraq contractor skirts US taxes offshore
“Kellogg Brown & Root, the nation’s top Iraq war contractor and until last year a subsidiary of Halliburton Corp., has avoided paying hundreds of millions of dollars in federal Medicare and Social Security taxes by hiring workers through shell companies based in this tropical tax haven.”
With Medicare and Social Security in dire need of funding, this problem must be addressed. Since Senator McCain wants to stay in Iraq up to 100 years, I’d like to hear what he thinks about this and what should Congress do about it, if anything.
