The mayor of West Point Georgia, population 3, 500 must know something the big city mayors don't. KIA built a 3,000 job assembly plant there and its halo affect has produced 10,000 more jobs to boot.

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?????
It's the same reason, gerrymandering of the districts (along with pre-existing racial segregation) leads to precincts which are overwhelmingly minority voters:

"All the Cuyahoga County precincts in which Romney was shut out are in neighborhoods with heavily African-American or Latino populations.

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll in August underlines the significance of that demographic. It showed Obama leading by a 2-to-1 margin among Hispanic voters and had his support at 94 percent among black voters, with zero percent favoring Romney. Six percent said they were undecided or had no opinion. None of the poll's 120 black respondents picked Romney.

An election day exit poll by NBC News found that black voters in Ohio picked Obama over Romney by 96 percent to 3 percent. That percentage matches the spread by which Obama won in Cleveland precincts east of the Cuyahoga River."

Yall know politifact is a bunch of washed up and out of work up liberal journalists who just made up a new take on reporting and called it POLITIFACT. As if reporting ACTUAL FACTS is something the modern media doesn't bother with any more.

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.
It's hard to have a discussion with a person of your specialized mind, but I'll try. Number one the tax code has a lot to do with why they do not want to be in older poorer structures and areas. Secondly, more established areas have many more restrictions on waste, air quality, traffic, parking, and of course security. These impediments are just the starters. Then there is the problem with getting qualified people to work. If you think the inner city and its unemployed people are even close to being qualified, you may wish to spend some quality time with the gang bangers offering them love to give up their ways. You still believe in Shangri-La and a Utopian Society. In other words you are a fool.

Right. People don't drive to work so companies have to count on locals walking to the job.

Maybe you better read more stories when it comes to business plans. Trust me, here in Cleveland, we lost a lot of businesses through the years. Sure there are other factors, but taxes are number one. It's the first thing a city or town considers to attract a business. If you read stories about businesses debating their next location, you will see that consideration at the top of the story.

<quoted text> use their own $??? Do you know what "bankrupt" means?
IF a company were to file for bankruptcy in U.S. federal court, it affects ONLY domestic debt & assets since the U.S. wouldn't have jurisdiction in other countries.
It can be a way for a company to shift assets off shore & protect it. Fair? Ethical? you decide.

It's the same story, just a different location:

"Obama's dominance was mostly confined to largely African-American areas of West and North Philadelphia. In the third division of Philadelphia's 28th Ward, for example, 94 percent of the residents are black, and the 2010 census recorded only seven white residents. Voter registration lists showed only 12 registered Republicans in the division, none of whom voted for Romney or responded to the Inquirer's requests for comment."

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.
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.

I guess it would depend on the countries you do business in. There is a standard that should be set so innocent people aren't exploited. In the case of china I would say its unethical and a tax is fair. Unless you think asian people should have a lower standard of living than us, and just provide us with cheap goods. But with no manufacturing jobs in the states that are economically viable in todays worldwide economy this will leave a large portion of our population out of work.

no there should just be a flat tax period. Not a "flat corporation tax". Most of them aren't even based in america.
" The problem with the corporate tax code is not what many think. Frankly, we can change the nominal tax rate to practically anything. It doesn't matter since hardly any corporations pay the nominal rate. What matters is this: Bring up the real tax rate (what companies actually pay) to support needed investments in productivity and competitiveness. Stop penalizing small business. And, end the gimmicks and loopholes that encourage investment in damaging business practices and obsolete industries."
