When a Republican raises taxes it is prudent fiscal management unaffected by lobbyists and business interests, always good for the state and country. When a Democrat raises taxes it is because they are money grubbing commie socialists beholden to special interests. Stick to that and no further critical thinking is required.

Actually it's a little different because Republicans seldom if ever raise taxes.

But why is it that when Republicans cut taxes, it's tax breaks for the rich. But when Democrats give tax breaks, it's an investment in our future?

It doesn't always work that way. Boehner isn't doing his job and they put him back in charge. I really doh't care for the guy, but he's better than Piglosi flying her private jet back and forth, and lending it to her family on our dime.

They were put there thanks to gerrymandering of Congressional districts by Republicans, not the will of the people.
"Normally we would expect more seats in Congress to go to the political party that receives more votes, but the last election confounded expectations. Democrats received 1.4 million more votes for the House of Representatives, yet Republicans won control of the House by a 234 to 201 margin."

Maybe when we figure that one out, we can then proceed to calculating how Mitt Romeny didn't receive one vote in districts such as here in Cuyahoga County. Sure, I can understand a majority or even a very strong majority in Democrat districts, but not one vote?????

maybe oblamer will raise the corporate tax rate and really make them rich pay their fair share. Maybe close some loopholes like he promised in his latest campaign. But he hasn't . He's left the tax rate where it is and added new loopholes. But his retarded base seems to think he's really done everything he's promised on taxes, as far as making the "rich pay". That and they seem to just excuse his raising taxes on the middle class, obamacare not covering pre existing conditions and raising premiums of people who pay for their own healthcare coverage. Other broken campaign promises.

Okay Woosie, the only time we raise taxes is when Demoncrats promise to cut spending, but in the past they never follow through with the cuts. No more, you can not trust liars and you are proven liars.

Does anyone have ANY idea how to bring the 18 trillion dollars home from overseas and put it to work here?
SET THE MFing Corp tax rate at ZERO!

Corporations will flock here so fast there won't be enough available workers to fill the jobs! Has anyone heard what a lack of workers is doing in S.Dakota? A shortage of available workers there has made the starting pay at Wal Mart 17-18 dollars an hour! Better than anything any union could ever hope to do!

Idiot democrats. Promise EVERYTHING and deliver nothing!

its already one of the lowest. I would rather get rid of income tax and a lot of other taxes on american citizens. corporations don't care about people. Just look at what they do in china! Its all because their government isn't for the people by the people. See they hate that, that's why they buy off politicians and have them put in sneaky trade agreements, the american worker cannot be treated the same as a chinese or indonesian worker. For now.
Besides what's wrong with feuling some good old american competition by leveling the playing field here in the states for everyone? In true capitalism monoplies should be illegal! Unless you think true capitalism doesn't work....
"A striking paradox animates political economy in our times. On the one hand, mainstream economics and much of left economics discuss our era as one of intense and increased competition among businesses, now on a global scale. It is a matter so self-evident as no longer to require empirical verification or scholarly examination. On the other hand, wherever one looks, it seems that nearly every industry is concentrated into fewer and fewer hands. Formerly competitive sectors like retail are now the province of enormous monopolistic chains, massive economic fortunes are being assembled into the hands of a few mega-billionaires sitting atop vast empires, and the new firms and industries spawned by the digital revolution have quickly gravitated to monopoly status. In short, monopoly power is ascendant as never before."

There was one way to do that, and that was to vote for Mitt Romney, but the country voted the other way instead.

In Romney's economic plan, he would have eliminated the tax multinational companies pay on fund transfers. In other words, let's say that GM in China wanted to transfer funds to their US plants who were in serious trouble. In order to do that, the feds would tax them on the money that was transferred here.

If GM were to face serious financial troubles now, we would probably bail them out again instead of allowing GM to use their own money from a foreign outlet. So of course, the common sense thing to do is not transfer any money to the US.

Just about all other industrialized countries did eliminate that tax, but not the US. And we won't see any elimination of such tax until we get a real President. Throw in Commie Care, and you have all the makings for business to avoid transferring money and creating jobs in the US.

Corporations would rather rob you at the pump and sell you crap at walmart than come here and employ us. Will enough of us keep a job here if this keeps happening? Probably not manufacturing jobs but we stopped counting the number of jobs outsourced so guess we won't know because nobody in washington really cares.

Is your comment supposed to be directed at my post that you attached it to? If so, you have me curious since I am missing the link of your party mention. I didn't mention or imply any party whatsoever. Did I word my post ambiguously?

Big companies enjoy a huge buffet of credits, shelters, deductions, and other preferences that reduce their rate to an average of 13 percent. Many profitable companies pay no federal income tax at all. Regardless of our nominal rate, our real corporate tax rate is among the lowest. Further cuts cannot stimulate growth.

This article is a bit dated, but it basically explains outsourcing. A short and very informative read:

Corp tax being at 35% is amongst the highest on the planet first of all.

Set it at ZERO and offer tax amnesty to the 18 trillion outstanding untaxed dollars held offshore and corps would flock here even from China no matter what the labor cost is.

No, it's not about the lowest. As for your average, we can't use average because all companies and businesses are treated differently when it comes to taxation.

Some companies do pay nothing in taxes while others pay 35%. It's all a matter of who you know in Washington and what kind of industry you're in.

This is why there needs to be a flat corporation tax. No business is going to come here if (with their breaks) they are going to pay 35%.

Tax breaks do work. That's why when cities are competing for a certain company to open up or move their business to their city, the very first thing on the table is tax abatements.
