His post is important because it demolishes one of the two arguments for a corporate tax cut, namely that taxing corporations is just too damn hard.
In a fairer world, the other argument for a corporate tax cut would collapse of it’s own weight. That argument: that we have to cut corporate taxes because all the other countries have lower taxes than us.
This after months of trying to “reform” healthcare without mentioning, ever, that healthcare in all those other countries was better and cheaper. All those heads resolutely looking away from the rest of the world. Watch those heads swivel en masse as the topic changes from health care to corporate taxes.
This is no time to abandon American exceptionalism! We have the highest corporate taxes because we’re better than the rest of the world. Our economy is better than Europe’s. Don’t let the elitists in Congress turn our country into another Greece.
