Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., expresses his displeasure that Apple CEO Tim Cook was being brought before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee as the panel examines the methods employed by multinational corporations to shift profits offshore and how such activities are affected by the Internal Revenue Code, Tuesday, May 21, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington. A string of unrelated events are highlighting divisions among Republicans, just when they’d like to show a united front and take full advantage of President Barack Obama’s latest political problems. Tensions between libertarian-leaning and more mainstream Republicans were on vivid display Tuesday, as Sens. Paul and John McCain clashed over Apple Inc.’s tax-avoidance strategies. (AP Photo/J.
