The White House’s New Corporate-Tax-Cut-for-Jobs Proposal

July 30th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

I’ll have more to say about this later, but check out this fact sheet on the new corporate-tax-cut-for-jobs proposal that the President will propose later today.

I get that the R’s are honor bound to oppose anything he comes up with, but the fact that they’re already out, hours before the speech, condemning this as just another example of Obama trying to impose his ideas on them.  Cutting the corporate rate…his idea??  True, he’s talked about lower-rate-broader-base corporate reform for years, and the Treasury put out a white paper on this last year.  But this is something R’s have called for forever–you can’t spend five minutes on the Larry Kudlow show without him calling for a corp-rate cut.

I really wonder if at this point, he agreed to repeal Obamacare, they’d immediately decide it was essential to implement it tomorrow.

    When I first heard “Corporate Tax Cuts” I rolled my eyes, but looking into the plan I actually like it. Unfortunately, Republicans won’t go for it because it’s Obama — oh sorry — I mean because “it doesn’t go far enough” or some crap like that.

    Jared, you are so on point I appreciate your hard work and
    fair perspective.
    Now how do we get these stale, lazy, self serving Republicans
    out of office?

    As with most government policy suggestions from both aisles, this one is just like the rest – would benefit giant corporations (and therefore, giant government), and would do nothing for the 98% of all businesses in America with 1-20 employees.

    The Republicans come from big business backgrounds and Obama has never held a job, let alone run a business. Neither of them have a clue that the country runs on the backs of 28 million small businesses, not 17,000 corporations with 500 or more employees.

    Looking forward to the day when the Smallists and Localists become the major voice in Washington. Right now, they don’t even have one there.
