The disparity between those who are wealthy and average workers is outrageous. We'd be a much more civil and humane society were wealth more equally distributed. It's unconscionable for people who want to shelter the wealthy from paying a higher tax rate.

To answer your question simply. Because to do otherwise is unAmerican. Companies who outsource not only deserve but need to be scorned. American companies who don't care to employ Americans should not get any tax write offs. Make them pay.
