There are countries around our connected world who give dramatic corporate tax benefits to our highest on the planet. Medical Device firms face even more draconian reasons to leave our shores — a 2.3% tax on total revenues is the equivalent of more than 10% additional tax on top of the current taxes that are driving our best and brightest headquarters to Ireland, et. al.

But divisive politics will make sure both the states and the country will chase votes by chasing companies away. Hey Pizza parlors — where do you think your customers get the dollars to buy your circular delights? Keep voting in these taxing idiots and you will lose your business.
