FEB 13, 2013-- On January 1, 2013, taxes went up by $4.2 trillion, as Clinton-era policies snapped back into place. On January 2, however, Congress cut taxes by $3.6 trillion, permanently cementing into law the vast majority of the temporary tax cuts first enacted in 2001 and 2003. So, where does this leave American tax policy? Answer: still in need of reform. Last week, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) rel...

Wal-Mart Executives Sweat Slow February Start in E-Mails
By Renee Dudley - Feb 15, 2013 11:16 AM PT

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. had the worst sales start to a month in seven years as payroll-tax increases hit shoppers already battling a slow economy, according to internal e-mails obtained by Bloomberg News.

“In case you haven’t seen a sales report these days, February MTD sales are a total disaster,” Jerry Murray, Wal- Mart’s vice president of finance and logistics, said in a Feb. 12 e-mail to other executives, referring to month-to-date sales.“The worst start to a month I have seen in my ~7 years with the company.”

Pelosi: Congressional pay cut undermines dignity of the job
By Mike Lillis - 02/14/13 06:37 PM ET

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers' jobs.

"I don't think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "I think it's necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded."

The comments were made in the context of the looming sequester, which would force across-the-board cuts affecting most federal offices, including Congress. With lawmakers nowhere near a deal to avert those cuts, federal agencies are bracing for ways to absorb them with minimum damage to programs and personnel.

Pelosi, whose husband is a wealthy real-estate developer, was quick to note that a cut in her own pay would be far less significant than that for both staffers and less wealthy members of Congress.

Where's the Party ID? San Diego's $1 Billion

Gambling Mayor Not Identified as a Democrat by NY Times

Published: 2/15/2013 1:12 PM ET

The New York Times ran a front-page story Friday on Maureen O'Connor, the newly disgraced former mayor of San Diego who lost at least $13 million in casinos over the years, wagering a staggering $1 billion: "Ex-Mayor of San Diego Confronts $1 Billion Gambling Problem." O'Connor, who served between 1986 and 1992, was a rare Democratic mayor in San Diego, but you won't find the word "Democrat" in Jennifer Medina's article.

A former mayor of San Diego spent the last decade wagering more than a billion dollars at casinos across the country, eventually liquidating her savings, auctioning her belongings, selling off real estate, borrowing from friends and taking more than $2 million from a charity set up by her late husband, a fast-food tycoon.

The former mayor, Maureen O’Connor, 66, blamed an addiction to gambling aggravated by a brain tumor for the gargantuan spree. Her lawyers said that while she had made well over a billion dollars in bets at casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and San Diego, her actual net losses were around $13 million.

I'll just use a scholarly paper to illustrate what the problem is with tax disparity:
1
I. Introduction
Corporate income taxes present a challenge for economists. Their incidence has seemed particularly difficult to assign and there have been persistent questions about the logic of a separate tax on corporations.
Figure 1 shows U.S. corporate income taxes as a share of GDP and of federal revenues for fiscal years 1962-2006. The two series track each other closely because overall revenues as a share of GDP have remained rather stable during the period, with an average
just below 20 percent.
..........
So, while that paper is from 2006, NOTHING has changed with respect to the percentage of tax revenue coming from corporations - same folks who are booking the highest profits since the 1960's. And, you, RH, are concerned about the 47% who include poor seniors, students, minimum wage workers and single mothers struggling to support children as well as the disabled in America? Why is that your focus? These folks are already working for peanuts, trying to get prepared to compete via a college degree, or they are elderly and unable to work or disabled and unable to find work.
I removed a portion of your post. If anyone wants to refer to it, it is located on page 4430.

Currently Japan holds the inauspicious distinction of having the highest corporate income tax rate in the world (39.5 percent). The United States is a close second.

Japan will soon fall from the top spot because it has finally recognized what the rest of the industrialized world realized over a decade ago: A low corporate income tax rate is vital for economic growth in the global marketplace. As such, Japan just announced it will reduce its corporate income tax rate by 5 percentage points down to around 35 percent. This remains far above the 25 percent average rate of other industrialized countries, but for them it is a start.

Japan’s reduction will leave the U.S. in the uncomfortable position of having the highest corporate income tax rate in the industrialized world. Hopefully Congress will finally see fit to lower the rate now that we will hold that disreputable title.

The top marginal corporate income tax rate is an important factor influencing economic growth and job creation, because it determines how much the tax will reduce the return the business earns from new investment. As a result, it is a large determinant when businesses decide where to locate their next venture—and where they will hire new employees.

The high rate in the U.S. is driving businesses and jobs to other countries. Those jobs will continue to flow to other countries if the U.S. insists on levying its self-defeating corporate income tax rate. It is long past time for Congress to lower the rate so it is equal or below the 25 percent average of our competitors. If it does not, businesses and jobs will continue their exodus to more friendly locales.

Smith called on Congress to pass legislation recently introduced by Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) that would close many of these loopholes, and would raise nearly $200 billion over the next decade.

"$200 billion over the next decade"?????????? As we spend about $10 billion per day, this legislation recommended by two democratic senators to close loopholes for corporate taxes shows the loopholes do not garner that much savings for corporations in the first place or democrats are not serious about tax reform. Is the problem really corporations or that almost 50% of Americans do not pay taxes???????

Massacre Survivor Tells Senate: I’m Not a Victim of Guns, But of Lawmakers Who ‘Legislated Me Out of the Right to Protect Myself and My Family’
Feb. 14, 2013 7:56am Erica Ritz

Dr. Suzanna Hupp became a case study in gun control after testifying in front of Congress as a survivor of the 1991 “Luby” massacre in Texas where both of her parents were killed. On Monday, more than a decade later, she spoke once more on the issue, examining it through the lens of the debate currently gripping the nation.

During her first appearance, Hupp explained how a friend had given her a gun when she was 21 and, though she doesn’t like guns or hunting, she agreed to get some training and carry it in her purse.

Not long after, a man crashed his car into a restaurant where she was eating with her family and started shooting people.

“It took me a good 45 seconds to realize that this man wasn’t there to commit a robbery,” she said.“He was there to simply shoot as many people as he possibly could.”

CIR will fail this time just as it has the last 50 all of which were a "sure thing" as you claim this one is if we don't adopt YOUR policy NOW. However, if CIR does pass, I still won't support it. That won't make my opinion irreverent as you would like others to believe as descent is a RESPECTED thing in this country.
Oh, trust me. I'm not telling you what to do. I'm just pointing out what you appear to be from reading your posts. There's a difference. If you don't want the label, don't provide the fodder.

Who cares whether or not you support it? It means sh*t to a frog what you will or will not support. It's just you and your head you'll be dealing with. No skin off anybody else's hide. Pout all you want. I couldn't care less about your reverence. This is not a church. But, your opinion really is irrelevant because it's rooted in sheer insanity coupled with stupidity. That's an insurmountable roadblock to reason. Now, pitch another fit.

Obama proposes lowering corporate tax rate to 28 percent

By Zachary A. Goldfarb,February 22, 2012

President Obama proposed a major overhaul of the nation’s corporate tax code on Wednesday, an election-year gambit that aims to draw a contrast over a key policy issue with the Republicans vying to replace him.

The plan would lower the nation’s corporate tax rate to 28 percent. At the same time, Obama wants to boost overall revenue from corporate taxation by banning numerous deductions and loopholes that save companies tens of billions of dollars a year on their tax bills.(cont.)

Compromise with the President and receive lower corporate tax rates.
