Bull****. It addresses the talking point very head on. Many claim that lower taxes create jobs, I haven't seen it. This would make it show and tell. After all, if they did create jobs then there would be $0 tax increase. If the government has to show that they can stop spending prior to increasing revenues then corporations need to show that they are creating jobs before they get the tax breaks.
It is not a quid pro quo situation. The government is restrained by enumerated powers, and restraint that liberals have bastardized through creative interpretation. Government makes no money, creates nothing, it only takes, and spends. I can't see why any businessman worth his salt would agree to bringing money back to these shores knowing full well that the government is going to just take it.
Again it is NOT governments money.
Corporations would have a far harder time passing on taxes when the competition has a tax advantage.
So you think that what you earn is what the government allows you to keep?Not the governments money, yet taxes are part of life.
Never said that taxes aren't reasonable to some extent. However, it is what we volunteer as citizens living in the freest nation on earth. Having a society that works for the government and is 'allowed' to keep a portion of what they earn in exchange for nanny state control, is not what this country is...That would be Socialism.Avoid paying your property taxes and try telling the government that it's not their house.
In that case there are plenty of countries that would fit your definition just not this one....yet.
I think that taxes are a part of life, please do not twist my words to try to score a point.
Aren't taxes a part of the cost of doing business? I am neither a liberal nor a socialist. I am an American seeking a solution before the entire thing tanks.
