Well said Ms. Payne. If corporate tax cuts were the financial panacea that some make it out to be, the US would be the richest nation on earth. Despite three decades of tax cuts and deregulation, the corporate sector has fled to low tax, low wage, low everything third world countries taking their tax cut windfalls with them. Were it not for thecountries who are financing the US: the Chinese who can't afford to let the US fail, and the Saudis' who are terrifed of losing their military protectors, the US economy would have collapsed already. How does a country that manufactures very little of what consumers want, or need, and that supports itself through creative financial schemes and by selling arms to everyone under the sun keep its head above water? By generating less revenue through corporate tax cuts so that these same corporations can create more jobs in China, while at the same time tripling the amount of money it donates to the Pentagon. Now that is a sure fire road to financial success.
