Corporate Taxes Must Come Down!

The response from my commentaries has grown from a whisper to a roar. The subject of outsourcing overseas and the lack of American made products in our stores has changed the way Americans shop.

Outsourcing is a major concern because it contributes to unemployment, loss of job skills, and an ongoing downturn for America’s economy. Without the reestablishment of EVERY industry possible and production of at least 50% of all the items the American people purchase on a regular basis, America's economy will continue to suffer.

One of the main reasons businesses have moved overseas is high corporate taxes. To highlight this fact on Sunday, March 27, 2011, a report was aired on CBS TV - 60 minutes with Lesley Stahl. The report focused on why major American corporations continue to leave the U.S.A. and why it is important for corporate taxes to come down. It outlined how the 35% corporate tax rate made businesses move to countries where taxes are between 15 to 20% or less, and how outsourcing is killing American jobs and our future while foreign countries and their workers continue to benefit.

I would like to suggest that America's leaders lower the corporate tax rate to compete with other nations and set up a system of corporate taxes so America is totally competitive with other nations of the world. With more corporations remaining and expanding in the U.S.A., the government would still collect the same level of taxes, it would simply be collecting the taxes from more companies operating in America.

What is the positive side of a lower corporate tax? 1. More companies will open up shop in the U.S.A. 2. More people will be working, earning money, and paying taxes instead of collecting unemployment or welfare. 3. With more people working, American communities can be revitalized and a new industrial revolution can take place using the latest technology and a newly skilled workforce. I never suggested that we end doing business with the rest of the world, I suggest we always be fully competitive with other nations and ensure that a balance of trade exists.

I encourage you to look at the CBS TV - 60 Minutes video report "New Tax Havens" with Lesley Stahl. It is linked on: under the American flag. You will find it very interesting and will want to pass this report on to others.
