    Which explains why so many right wingers do not understand the role of the federal govt in regulating commerce.

    Apparently a 3.9 trillion dollar govt. to do that isn't big enough for you, nor is the 17.6 trillion dollar debt and rising debt service. We have laws to regulate commerce. You don't need a massive central govt. to do that, just enforce existing laws.

    Allow people and businesses keep more of what they earn thus they won't have to move anywhere. TX has learned to do that, why can't Washington? S?ince when is it the role of the govt. to create equal outcome

    IS that why they voted against this bill which allows businesses that insource keep more of what they earn by granting a 100% deduction plus a 20% credit?

    The total bill is the issue not just the part you want to address. You read the headlines and not the story. Is there a reason that you want the Federal Govt. to take more of the revenue from the private sector? Why won't you support a reduction in the corporate tax rates?

    The total bill reduces corporate taxes. The GOP voted against so they must want the feds to take more money from the private sector and they oppose reductions in corporate tax rates

    That is your opinion but like with most of your opinions, wrong

    The bill would have prevented companies from deducting expenses related to moving their operations to a foreign country.
    How does that bill lower corporate costs?

    Better learn what taxes business pay, Federal, State, and Local. Businesses are in business to make money, a concept you have a problem understanding.

    Not an opinion. It is a fact that the bill reduces corporate taxes and a fact that the GOP voted against it

    It lowers taxes

    Do you understand that a bill that lowers taxes has the effect of lowering taxes?

    Post the contents of the bill and not selected sentences. If you want to reduce corporate taxes then support a bill to reduce them, not one just for companies going overseas.
