As long as business can have as profound of a lobbying impact as such, there will always be a way around or to pay SIGNIFICANTLY less tax than is originally intentioned.

Blame loop holes and tax haven countries. Imagine the amount of positive infrastructure the Ireland would have with that much tax flowing into their country.
