    Yeah, I could believe that having corporations pay no taxes would create millions of new jobs!
    But I said "could believe". The reason I'm skeptical:

    Study says most corporations pay no U.S. income taxes
    Study says most corporations pay no U.S. income taxes | Reuters

    Being as most corporations already escape taxes, where are the jobs?

    Also, as the Supreme Court declared the corporations are people, how can they legally be exempt from paying income taxes? Or do they suddenly not become people?

    No jobs, profits. Shareholders are more important than jobs.

    And if they are people who don't have to pay income taxes - then that should include us as well.

    This is starting to make more and more sense. Yesh.

    Do they REALLY not see that if they hoover all the money out of most of America, there will be no one left to pay for their products and/or services??

    Corporations will have to deal with Obamacare and cap and tax which will cut into the bottom line.Do you think these two things will be helpful to the entities that hire people.
    Why do anything in this country where the regulations and labor costs plus the attacks by the media put them behind companies in other countries.

    Keep bashing the last few companies that are trying to make it here.
    Unless you want what the President seems to want.
    The only game in town where a job can be gotten is in government.... :(

    Bachmann followed her comment with something about eliminating deductions, write-offs, loopholes.

    Yes, and Huntsman followed that with the point that it can't be done.

    She's just kissing ass.

    The government is the party "hoovering" all the money out of America.
