    Obama to propose 'grand bargain' on corporate tax rate, infrastructure

    Obama to propose 'grand bargain' on corporate tax rate, infrastructure | Reuters

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will propose a "grand bargain for middle-class jobs" on Tuesday that would cut the U.S. corporate tax rate and use billions of dollars in revenues generated by a business tax overhaul to fund projects aimed at creating jobs.

    His goal, to be outlined in a speech at an Amazon.com Inc facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is to break through congressional gridlock by trying to find a formula that satisfies both Republicans and Democrats.

    Efforts to reach a bipartisan "grand bargain" on deficit reduction have been at an impasse for months.


    A spokesman for John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, criticized the idea even before the release of the plan's details, saying it further backs Obama's policies on taxes and spending "while leaving small businesses and American families behind."
    He can at least wait for the plan details before he bitches can't he?

    It will be a tax cut for corporations, and a public works project. Maybe hire on some accountants to help funnel more millions to dead farmers.



    Obama has proved time and again the he's a corporate whore.

    So cutting taxes on corporations will give the government more taxes to spend? As far as republicans go, Obama might go down as one of the best that has ever held the office

    It is another tax increase. What else does anyone need to know?

    Why bother waiting? It IS NOT and never has been the role of the Government to create jobs. Even when they've tried over the years, they generally fail miserably.

    Whether he's right or not it makes him look petty. It makes it look like he's against it just because Obama said it not because of it's content. That makes him look weak.

    He should be against that sort of legislation no matter WHO proposes it, and without having to read it. It's unConstitutional so far as I'm concerned; and unlikely to work even if it was legitimate legislation..

    Cut the corporate tax rate... OK, that's what the Republicans have been making mouth noises about wanting to do, but the "business tax overhaul" sounds a lot like "business tax increase", especially when he's talking about using the money thus generated for a "jobs program."

    Unless, of course, he's become a trickle down supply sider expecting tax cuts to increase revenues in a new move toward voodoo economics.

    I think we're a bit short on details at this point.

    It was proposed by a Democrat. That's the only detail that really matters to the Republican leadership.

    Uhh... How in the hell is this a "tax increase". This is a huge tax cut for the corporate shrills, the right should be loudly supporting this.

    He could, but then knowing the history of Obama ideas on the economy, he's just going to be bitching anyway. And when was the last time an Obama initiated plan actually had details? Or are you suggesting the Pelosi method of governance, just pass the damn thing and maybe read it when you're on one of your congressional breaks?
