Insight: In "fiscal cliff" bill, White House was key to corporate tax breaks

Jan 7, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

As the Congress rushed last week to approve a "fiscal cliff" tax bill that raised income taxes on the wealthy, Washington lobbyists were fretting over a drama that was playing out within the negotiations: whether the bill would include about $64 billion in tax breaks for businesses.

Off shorign has cut many US domestic job openings in half

So what exactly is corporate America holding over our head to get tax breaks that supposedly created and/or perpetuate US employment.

Corporate American is never happy. First it's not enough tax breaks then they want the local employees and economy to pay their taxes like contractors.

Corporations do not pay taxes, never have, never will.

both parties need to face reality, but especially the executive office. president needs to be honest with the people--taxing the rich will not fund his program...

"We may, with open eyes, choose the reassuring security of big government with a far larger safety and subsidy net and far higher taxes for all — by no means just the “rich” but in fact more so on the middle class — and likely the sclerotic growth and dependency of Europe. Or we may choose the opposite. But we deserve an honest debate about this critical issue. A debate missing from the last election."

not in the mold of John F. Kennedy, anyway. They're all Alinsky 'progressive' Democrats these days, and the undoing of a once great, prosperous, liberty-loving, free people and nation.

My FDR/Truman democratic family saw a marked difference in the "new & improved" Johnson democratic party in 1965. Didn't like it and quit. Many in our area did.

Bill, Hillary and their dlc buddies ruined the Democratic party and turned it into a repository of corporate shills indistinguishable from the gop!

These aren't "corporations". They are gaggle of leftists who pretend to run Green Businesses until they bleed the tax slaves dry and then they pull a Solyendra. Team Obama continue to make chumps of us all. The next four years will be gruesome.
