There's a whole lot of reading into a simple statement there. Tim Cook stated that tax reform is an area of interest - everything else that Corey is spouting is pure supposition. Also, saying that "Apple led and others followed" is a bit rich, Apple certainly wasn't the first company to use tax law to its advantage.
What's really great is the link "its R&D and its workforce training" showing that all the cool tech was invented by those hardworking eggheads at the DOE, DARPA, etc. I'd love to see how many of those innovations were created under contract from the DOE with private companies. And part of the deal is that stuff goes public and others can use it. One example is Siri - yes, it was a DARPA funded project, but all they did was provide money. It was a spinoff of CALO project at SRI, and SIRI as we know it was founded by Dag Kittlaus, Adam Cheyer and Tom Gruber. Apple then bought them. So I'm not sure how any of this is 'starving' the US.
But hey, Corey gets to bitch about Apple again this morning, so there's that.
ETA: Also, the click wheel invented by CERN? As far as wikipedia knows, it was created by Synaptics, but even if it was CERN, CERN is not a US organization, so... yeah.
