Joe Biden Criticizes Amazon Allegedly Not Paying Taxes

Former Vice President Joe Biden attacked Amazon during a campaign speech in Mount Pleasant, Iowa.

Although Biden said he didn’t have anything against the company, he said they should pay taxes.

An Amazon spokesperson disputed the claims that the company hasn’t paid their taxes.

He said Amazon paid all their taxes they’re required to pay, including “$2.6 billion in corporate tax.” According to Business Insider, Biden joins a growing list of politicians criticizing tech giants.
