Congress is all theater...
... and very amateurish theater at that.

I beg to disagree! The CEO is doing exactly what his share holders desire.
It is the tax code that needs revision - all these years now.

If there is a wholesale change proposed, Congress thinks it should be taken piecemeal. And vice versa.
Congress absolves itself by hauling top officials of the IRS and Apple to answer questions and listen to snide, sniping remarks (Sen. McCain's "Why the hell do I have to keep updating apps on my iPhone all the time?"); when in truth they should be doing the hard work of formulating laws that address the current plight of "The American People".
