Comments on: What next? Reforming corporate taxes and entitlements http://blogs.reuters.com/david-rohde/2013/01/03/what-next-reforming-corporate-taxes-and-entitlements/ Fri, 31 Jul 2015 03:37:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: JL4 http://blogs.reuters.com/david-rohde/2013/01/03/what-next-reforming-corporate-taxes-and-entitlements/#comment-2470 Fri, 04 Jan 2013 18:35:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/david-rohde/?p=1417#comment-2470 It only makes sense to close loopholes for corporations. The only reason we have to even bring it up is because corporations lobby and pay off Congress to keep the loopholes open.

Tax credits should be given for corps who keep the money, production in the US, not out of it, with even more tax credits for creating full-time jobs here as well. Corporations will be chicken scratching to boost the US economy within a month.

Social programs should be revised to eliminate as much fraud as possible.

Spending should be cut in the military.

I just don’t get why these points are even an issue – except that, again, Congress has been paid to keep it all “business as usual.”

They are the ones who spent our tax dollars and raided our SS to pay for their pork and illegal wars. Make Them pay the darn debt!!!! I am 63 and I sit teetering as “can I retire at 66 or 67 or when and how much will they rob me of”. I have worked for 43 year thus far and how dare them think at the last minute they can rob me of all my years of input into this system. They walk away rich with pensions and their own medical plan while they systematically rob and pilfer me of my retirement benefits leaving me in poverty wiht little medicalinsurance. I guess they want to make themselves a target for the next yahoo with a semi automatic weapon. Washington needs to pay this bill out of their own wages as they created it. Next cut the DOD in half but don’t you dare touch SS or medicare (unless you get the fraud out of medicare).

The proposal in your article is just another tawdry Robin Hood scheme.

I wonder which party and president is responsible for companies like GE and Google paying no taxes, subsidies to wind farms and Hollywood while agitating for higher personal income taxes. That’s because liberal elitists really care about the “little guy”.
