The Boeing Corporation regularly receives tens of billions worth of government contracts each year. The company's defense, space, and security division based in St. Louis gets nearly half of its entire revenue from the U.S. Military (and this doesn't count revenue from other countries for whom the U.S. gives military aid to).
On top of getting billions of dollars from the government, Boeing has paid nothing in state taxes over the past decade, according to the left-leaning Citizens for Tax Justice. In fact, they actually got a few bucks back. As for federal taxes, Boeing gets billions in rebates and some years they don't pay any taxes to Uncle Sam, according to the right-leaning American Spectator.More »
