President Obama in Tennessee on Tuesday will call for a lowering of the corporate tax rate in exchange for heightened government investments in infrastructure, manufacturing and education, a new effort to entice Republicans wary of virtually all of his prescriptions to improve the economy.

Well...that's very 'trickle-down' of him. Almost. I'll bet it sticks in his craw to have to resort to something so...Conservative.

At least he has tacitly admitted that he is familiar with the theory.

How about they cut taxes and stop there.

The moronic idea that gov can "create" "infrastructure" jobs has been proven to be a non-starter. It doesn't work.

Cut the taxes and let the companies create their own jobs.

I would hope no Republican is going to be enticed by the same manure this (*%&*$ has been pushing for the last five years. There isn’t a coherent thought I’ve ever heard escape his lips. Perhaps I haven’t been listening close enough.

Obama will never stop trying to shuffle money to his thug buds in the unions. He must always be given the same answer...NO.

And probably what you are not hearing is this is also in return for amnesty. Is that why big contributors are demanding amnesty? The fix is in. tax cuts in return for Dem control. Lenin said the capitalist would sell the rope to his own hanging.

Given what has happened in this country over the last 5 years, this is a little like a store raising prices by 25% and having a 5% off sale.

OUR response ought to be “Oh, shiite, there’s no shortage of Crony Capitalist types who will gladly throw the future of the country under the bus to lobby for something that will be to their personal benefit for a few quarters”.

Hey, Sotoero, if you just lower taxes jobs (nonunion jobs mostly) will naturally follow. We'll even give you credit for that. Just don't do this to funnel more money to your union buddies.

Look the GOP needs to be against government spending like this, but also we need to be against sending American jobs overseas, and we need to be for bringing back US jobs which were exported.

America needs industry.

For crying out loud. America needs work. America needs jobs.

America needs a GOP looking out for American work, and American jobs.

We need to stop sending US jobs overseas.

We need to bring back US jobs which were sent elsewhere.

We need balanced trade.

Now.

LOL- that is hilarious. Well, sort of. They have whipped the Low IQ progressives into a foaming at the mouth frenzy about corporations. He is going to give them a perk?

OH heck to the no.. they will scream. Corporations are supposed ti lie die and appreciate their rape. They are not supposed to get a perk!

If Obama is afraid for his life now- wait until he pisses off the progressives. Those people are vicious stalkers and very nasty when they are crossed.

Is his only hope is that they can continue to afford crack, until he gets out of office, and they won’t notice what he is doing.

In Feb. 2011, Obama, while campaigning, said that he would work to lower the corporate tax rate upon re-election.

He got elected and you haven’t heard a peep out of him, nor the Republicans.

Now he’s just using it as a faux bargaining chip.

By raising taxes on the one-percenters of course, so that they pay their fare share.

How about we pull one from the Dem’s playbook: corporate tax cuts now, and we promise we’ll increase spending on jobs sometime in the future.

Reduce revenue, increase spending. Makes sense to me. /sarc

The ironic thing is, that’s exactly what would happen.
But the dems wouldn’t want to let the corps do it voluntarily, they are all about forcing people to do what they think is best.

It may not sound very conservative and i do believe tax rates are too high but just cutting them with no incentive for companies to hire is useless. Big corps make billions every quarter and only get more efficient thus hiring is minimal.
Furthermore investing in infrastructure will either hire many people for a short period of time or a small number for much longer. Yes its value added but it’s not going to do much about long lasting jobs for the millions out there needing work.

You make sense. Sadly the most common comments on here about pay is to knock people who can’t find anything better than McDonalds.
All those millions of jobs we exported are only doing shareholders good. they are destroying our economy otherwise.

Why were the jobs exported?

What could be done to bring them back?

Why has industry shut down in America?

There has to be a cause, and a solution.

Demanding that “something” be done but not understanding why it happened is useless. If you don’t figure out why, you will spend your life with a picket sign, not a job.

There is more to it than that.

China does not practice “free trade” as America does.

China looks out for itself. It insists on a majority Chinese interest in companies, and does not allow foreigners to settle permanently in China.

Contracts to do business in China are based on a length of time.

China is planning.

American interests are giving away the farm.

It is time to bring it back.

America needs to stop giving everything to China, and we need to compete head-on.

Buy American.
