Corporations receive more benefits than people

I attempted to make a comment on Yahoo Finance in response to "Why the U.S. Tax Code Puts American Companies at a Massive Disadvantage", Rebecca Stropoli, Daily Ticker, 2011-03-28.

This happened to me before because I included a link in my comment, but this time I could find nothing that violated Yahoo's rules.

My comment was:

If Congress is going to support U.S. companies not paying U.S. taxes on earnings outside the U.S., why not support U.S. citizens not paying taxes on earnings outside the U.S.?

It is a bit onerous for an individual to fill out two tax forms: one for the country one is working in, and one for the U.S., a country one might not visit for a couple of years.
