Paul Krugman says large corporations are hoarding money and hiring lobbyist to get more tax breaks instead of investing in the economy. 

THE PROBLEM:  Tax breaks are granted to these large corporations to encourage investment in the U.S. economy.  Instead of investing in the economy, these large corporations appear to be paying dividends, paying down debt, buying other companies and hiring lobbyist to get more tax breaks.  Doing everything BUT putting money back into the general economy according to Paul Krugman.
