The REAL government "moochers"?

I have 'em for you right here:

Twenty-six of the most powerful American corporations – such as Boeing, General Electric, and Verizon – paid no federal income tax from 2008 to 2012, according to a new report detailing how Fortune 500 companies exploit tax breaks and loopholes.

And then, of course, there's the entire NFL They pay no taxes whatever.  Legally, too.

The report:

26 top American corporations paid no federal income tax from '08 to '12

And keep in mind, when we think "moochers"--you know, welfare moochers?--we aren't talking the ones getting oh, I don't know, $136 to live off of for two weeks or any "small potatoes" like that. We're talking billions of dollars here.

The 26?

Here they are:

They are, collectively, ladies and gentlemen, taking us for a ride.

A big, expensive, thieving, immoral ride.

And we're allowing it.

The original  report, conducted by the public advocacy group Citizens for Tax Justice.
