    Speechless... thanks for posting that. I think some loopholes and tax subsidies might need to go.

    the US has had a very big tax avoidance & collection problem which has costs a good 2T in lost revenue to the fed gov in the past decade alone.

    Maybe but some of the goals of the tea party need to be addressed; many entitlements currently in place are not solvent and doing nothing is not a solution, they will remain insolvent. I can say the same thing about very progressive liberals, anyone on the fringes tends to have ideas that are looked down upon or are flat out not realistic.

    I have to say that on an unrelated note, I finally feel like some of the House Republicans are getting it with realizing that revenue increases are necessary. I was happily shocked to see this, hopefully it leads to some smart decisions but I am not holding my breath (Boehner is a one track moron when it comes to taxes).

    Yeah the fact that guy is basically dictating a whole party in congress has to infuriate people but obviously you don't see anything being done. It is this kind of ridiculousness that makes me a pissed off conservative.

    he is directly impeding democracy in the US along with limiting economic functions of government. of course with the US always being on the extreme end of things this is see nowhere else in the world.

    Definitely eye openning.

    One could also argue that these businesses are tax generators in that they employ people who pay tax. I wonder what the net tax increase (if any) would be should these companies retain less profits (pay more tax) which in turn provides less capital to grow and hire, which means less employement.

    Of course the businesses are not doing themselves any favors by hording cash today

    I recently listened to an economist in the investment industry that argued, tax incentives should be removed for businesses who hord cash. It makes a lot of sense since the reason they have the extra cash is because they paid less tax to begin with...

    that isn't necessarily true at the federal level depending on the family size of the household and the total household income. males in certain work sectors are seeing wage decreases and/or stagnation while in the degreed healthcare fields are making income progress.

    many large US multinational firms are nearing the point where they are just as much harm as good. large firms should never appear to be or in reality be more powerful than the governments that created them. this is major dysfunction

    we need to go back to the small firm mentality in regards to many things.

    as an engineer most of my white color years were spent working for large MNE's with deep pockets to fuel our huge R&D budgets in telecom in the 90's and 2000's. I tried to do some things at the local level but small firms have no monies for development, at least not many do. I quit my job at the gaming control board because they would not allot me funding to automate the majority of the machine testing as is the standard practice in the 3rd party testing world. I have seen both sides of the coin.

    I said one could argue; I would never own an oppinion that could be argued.

    I think the more employees a business owner employs the more tax incentive he or she should have. I do like your small business logic. It would be great if we could limit the market share one company can control. It makes for a better democracy.

    What a novel idea. We need an Equalization of Opportunity Bill.

    We have to find a way to get more money in the hands of these job creators, 18% is too much, let's cut it to 2% and let the markets sort this thing out.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    I hear this will help. After reading that article it really, really changed my mind about a lot of companies I otherwised admired. The fact that government/defense contractors get so much money on top of the massive contracts wreaks of foul play throughout our government (congress mainly as they pass the laws). This alone shows that lobbying does almost nothing good for America and even though you get a vote for your congressman, it really equates to nothing in the grand scheme of things. I get more and more disenchanted every day. Why are these facts not presented and asked in debates, I bet most people running for President have no clue.

    The facts are not presented in debates because it would shed light on what is actually going on and the American people wouldn't put up with it anymore. It would ruin the political gravy train.
