Baal: It's not so much about corporate tax rates now, it`s about heavy-handed and over burdensome regulations that act like taxation. Regulatory costs meet or exceed corporate taxes in most industries now.

The Gov`t raided Gibson guitar recently over legally obtained fret board blanks, they`ve prevented Boeing from opening a new airplane plant in South Carolina, Mile High Cab in Colorado is being prevented from operating taxis by a public utility commission.

And this over regulation is often has multiple layers to deal with like local public commissions that recommends to a board, that then recommends to a state licensing authority, each layer taking 3-4 months of waiting minimum.

It`s so ridiculous they are fining kids with lemonade stands if they don`t have a license that costs $500.

Lets have a look at "The system we're using now" shall we?

Here`s the top- marginal tax rate vs employment:


Taxes down. Unemployment up. You`re pretending taxes are currently up and not working.

Same again for corporate taxes:


Finally, the idea that "if only corporate profits can be stimulated, we`d have jobs" is not true, they literally have never been richer:


So about this "system we`re trying now"... I like his idea better.
