To The Daily Sun,

I have three questions of Ms. Chong (letter of Jan. 24) and others who share her perspective:

1. Why do you think that Apple (and others) moved (or kept) large sums of cash out of the country? Could it be that it was/is cost-effective to do so? Businesses are in business to stay in business (and provide value to their shareholders).

2. It is reported that Apple will pay $38,000,000,000 to the Treasury. How much would they pay if it weren’t advantageous to move the funds into the country? (Hint: it rhymes with “hero.”)

3. What does this have to do with “corporate-backed elections?"
