Does Lowering Corporate Tax Rates Create Jobs?

NO! (Link)










Here is what the link at the top of the page has to say:

"The study, for example, found that a supermajority (22) of the 30 corporations paying the HIGHEST tax rates created 200,000 jobs between 2008 and 2012, while only 8 of those 30 had any reductions in the number of employees.  IN contrast, the 30 profitable corporations paying no or very little taxes in that period had an aggregate loss of more than 51,000 jobs--half created a few jobs and half reduced jobs between 2008 and 2012."

  1. No surprise here. The only surprise would be if the bastards were to admit the facts.

    1. I agree. Facts are not big, in fact non existent, on the conservative radar.

  2. Shows just how nonsensical the Conservative claims of US corporate tax rates being one of the highest is. We need to eliminate tax loopholes and start collecting taxes from the evaders... MAYBE the overall rate can be reduced a little, but we need to make sure everyone pays FIRST. And we need to start discouraging corporations from eliminating jobs by raising tariffs. Some will cry about "protectionism", but that is because we're asking that the workers in the US be protected... and that hurts the bottom line of the plutocrats.

  3. What Corporations and their Plutocratic Owners want is what all Capitalists want lower wages, no benefits for Workers and a Government which eliminates worker protection, pollution regulations and defends the Right of the Rich to rule.

    If Corporations could pay Workers nothing we'd have 100% employment in America

  4. But what about the Job Creators? You can't raise taxes in a soft economy. Businesses will leave if we keep strangling the economy with taxes and regulations.

    There, I think I've covered all the rightwing talking points.

  22. A black will never say “ALL LIVES MATTER”! Or POLICE LIVES MATTER”! Only BLACK lives matter! What these politicians did to our police forces is pathetic. The police cannot uphold the law in fear of a lawsuit or jail. Then these same politicians want to take away our guns leaving us as open targets for these criminals . Then we have cities like NYC changing their laws to satisfy these hoodlums. An example taking away “Stop & Frisk” which is now backfiring because crime is going up. We also have a bias President who caused this division, starting with the Cambridge Massachusetts case with that nutty black professor Henry Louis Gates and Obama going against the police saying they “Acted Stupidly”. We also had to put up with that racist pig in the DOJ Eric {CONTEMPT} Holder. This is how we ended up in this turning point with blacks against the police, because our Gov’t condones it.

  24. Information You DeserveSeptember 4, 2015 at 5:47 AM

    The other evening a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."
    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I' have never made a secret of my contempt for the Obamas, and I never will.. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
    I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialist, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. My dislike and my disrespect for the two of them goes back to the days that thet “sat in Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years and then told us that they “never” heard that “Preacher” say anything bad about America or about the Jews! Just how stupid and gulible did they think the American people are? Well maybe the progressives who kiss their rings and their behinds are that stupid and gullible, but we REAL Americans think that they were full of it then and full of it now. They sat there and listened to speeches that were full of hate for America for 20 year for heavens sake!! . Say what you like, I have the right to my opinion the same as others on this blog. The truth is that we have an egotistical, delusional president who has convinced himself that he is disliked by many Americans because he is black. And that can be no further than the truth. He is disliked because of his Socialist, and Marxist policies. And because he is sending our beloved country down the tubes.
    So no, Mr. Obama, no matter what you may think, we don’t dislike you because you’re black. And frankly that story is getting to be very old.

  26. What I think about Shit Heads like HillarySeptember 22, 2015 at 8:13 AM

    Hillary may need her Communist/Socialist base she does not have much left but her welfare addicts. Hillary has a big problem, she can't win by staying out of the public eye, and hiding from the press much longer. Sooner or later she is going to have answer the tough questions... and she’s not used to that. I think that she has a lot more problems then the media is telling.

  33. Today is Primsry day in New York,
    Today is the day to shut the naysayers up, day after day we hear Trump cannot win, he cannot beat Hillary, Trump is a bully, on and on.

    Well as Frank Sinatra would say: it's up to you New York, Neewww Yooorrrkkk!!!

    Time to get it done, show the country what you are working with, show them why you are called the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps.

    We have Cruz wheeling and dealing and trying to buy up all the delegates to keep Trump from securing the 1237 that he needs.

    Let today be a slam dunk for our man Trump. The pundits and the corrupt establishment are doing everything possible to derail this train, but the Trumpinator train is too strong to be derailed because it is powered by We The People and we are going to pull this train right across the finish line.

    Mr. Trump doesn't have to do this, he can go back into the private sector and enjoy the fruits of his labor, enjoy his family and his grandchildren, he could move out of this country like most of the elite have done and let this country continue on the path of destruction.

    But he choses to stay and get down in the trenches to fight right along with us, to bring this country back to the shining example it has always been for the rest of the world.

    We have all the paid protesters showing up at all of Trump's rallies, engaging in harassing pro Trump supporters, some even going as far as violence and spitting in Trump supporters face.

    Are we going to sit back and let the powers that be win, or are we going to kick butt and take names by going to the polls today and given Trump the wins he needs today, we can do it, Yes We Can!!!

    Remember: divided we lose, but by working together, we will win this election. The elites can try every underhanded trick in the book, by using his opponents to try to take as many of his delegates as they can, all this shows is that his opponents don't care about this country, they only care about themselves and will go to any lengths to win, and will go on national television and brag about it.

    Trump doesn't know how to play the game of deceit as well as these polished politicians who pretend to be outsiders when they are clearly established politicians who will lie, cheat and steal to be president.

    If they will do this to Trump and We The People, what do you think they would do to us and the rest of the country, if they ever made it to the White House?

    Choose wisely my friends and don't be intimidated by anyone, because, there's too much at stake, We The People and your children are counting on you to do the right thing. God bless you and God bless America!

  34. In the event that Bernie Sanders does not get the Democratic nomination in the 2016 presidential race, the Democratic party has a huge problem on their hands. Many of Sanders’ supporters are making it clear that they are “Bernie or Bust,” meaning that if he doesn’t get the nomination, they still won’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

  37. As the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit activities while serving as Secretary of State continues, the nation waits in suspense to see whether or not she’ll actually be indicted by the Department of Justice. However, a new report spells serious trouble for the Democrat front-runner, and if it’s true could be a turning point for politics in our nation.

    Over the weekend, the Huffington Post first published, then deleted a lengthy article stating that an indictment is coming for Clinton. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the story only add to the speculation that reporters at HuffPo know more than they’re letting on, and should terrify anyone working with the Clinton Foundation during the time for which it’s being investigated.

    As we all know, the investigation itself should have been wrapped up in late 2015, but as more evidence has been uncovered, the criminal case into Clinton has been growing and has expanded far beyond its original charge. Now charges such as espionage, perjury, and influence peddling have been added to the mix, and should FBI Director Comey be able to prove the allegations, Clinton is going to be in some serious hot water.

  38. McCain blames the rise in terrorism on Obama removing our troops from Iraq. I guess the Sen. forgot the troop withdrawal was a negotiated point between the Bush administration and Iraqi leaders. The cause of terrorism rising was America's invasion of Iraq based on a lie.
    I hope all this garbage will result in Republicans losing 30 seats in the House. Feingold from Wisconsin is running again for the Senate. I hope Warren stays in the Congress where we need her vote. Hillary can choose from many other VP candidates, we need to keep all our elected Democratic representatives in office.
    I'm having fun watching all this. I suppose because I don't believe Trump has a chance in hell of winning. But, as Bill Maher would say, never underestimate the stupidity of the American voter. If Trump actually wins, I won't be laughing anymore.

  40. President Obama owes General Petraeus an apology and a full pardon.

    Yes, the facts in his case were different than those of Hillary grossly incompetent and careless mishandling of classified information. Petraeus handed improperly-safeguarded classified information to an Army Officer who had a security clearance, but not the need to know and most likely not possessing all the SCI caveats. Clearly, Petraeus committed a crime.

    Hillary led an entire agency in what the FBI characterizes "extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information." Hillary Clinton led a State Department with a "security culture" ... generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information found elsewhere in the government."

    The FBI found 55 e-mail chains that contained classified information. That's not an oopsie. That is a deliberate culture of violating federal statutes. Add in the clandestine server and the documented illegal destruction of public records, and you have clear intent (which is not required under the statutes cited--indeed people are punished under it all the time for careless handling).

    The main difference in the Petraeus and Clinton cases is that Petraus illegally handed over improperly-stored classified information to his Army Officer biographer who did possess a security clearance, while Hillary and her staff sent classified information all over the world and left it unsecured on easily-hackable servers that were not authorized to store classified information.

    So, who did the greater damage to our nation?

    If Hillary walks, Petraeus should also, as should all those others--with no criminal intent--who were prosecuted according to the law's standard of gross negligence.

  42. In the aftermath of the Islamic terror attacks in Orlando and Istanbul, we see what the misguided national security priorities for President Obama, and de facto, Hillary Clinton truly are.
    It’s all about gun control, climate change, and now transgender individuals. American taxpayers will now be providing funding for hormonal treatments and surgical procedures, not to mention new uniforms, for those suffering from gender dysphoria.
    We need a commander in chief who will identify and engage the enemy to defeat them – not use our military for ideological social egalitarian agendas.
    This is why Islamic terrorists are emboldened, and actually laughing at us. Heck, al-Qaida has even issued a statement to kill only white people, since the progressive socialist left declares their attacks as hate crimes.
