'Corporate Pirates of the Caribbean' Report Seeks to Widen Tax Haven Loopholes

Fix the Debt's members are pushing for cuts to Social Security, Medicare and earned social insurance benefits, while seeking to widen tax haven loopholes by creating a "territorial" tax system, which would earn them as much as $173 billion.
