You know, I actually do kind of feel bad for the Ron Paul and Libertarian republicans. Its just too bad that they have to be sided so closely with the Republican party, because man, if the original purpose of these marches was free market libertarianism, you guys have been bamboozled and hijacked by Fox news and the GOP.

Fact:  By the time you hear about things like this, they're already co-opted.

Why are companies running across borders? They can't compete with the taxes being charged here. Why are they charged high taxes? To cover excesive government spending. Your grandkids will be paying for a massage some AIG shmuck got a resort last fall. :thumbup: Real funny.




Uh... Corporations in America have some of the LOWEST taxes. The tax rate on corporations in America are among the highest in the world, but there are so many tax breaks, tax benefits, tax loopholes, that the effective tax rate is VERY low for corporations here.

Quote:

The United States has the second highest corporate tax rate of the 30 countries in the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). But because the United States has so many generous special tax preferences for businesses, it collects the fourth lowest corporate tax revenues as a share of GDP among all OECD countries.




In actuality, the major reason corporations are leaving is not taxes. Most of these corporations aren't leaving at all. They are still located in overseas tax havens... no, what is happening is they are moving labor and jobs out of America and into places where they can don't have to pay for health insurance costs for their workers. Health insurance payments by corporations for US workers costs corporations a ton!

Take that burden off of corporations in the form of a single payor health care system and you'll probably see more companies stay.

That too.

The problem with this, though, is that eventually these people will unionize and demand better conditions and pay too.

Then the corporations will move on to the next place...

The major problem with this cycle, though, is that not everyones standards of living can improve on this planet... If everyone lived the same way as Americans, it would take 6 earths.

Try workmans comp taxes and unemployment taxes to figure out why corps are moving over seas.

They don't have to pay those taxes elsewhere.

Naw, they just like paying sweatshop wages, and now they can.
