    Because it will free up $2.6trillion for investment and job creation. That's why.

    Why? is there a shortage of capital in the USA? There is more than enough money in the USA to finance economic growth in the USA to whatever level you want. That is not the problem. You just don't get it. Voodoo economics is a failure.

    As for another country, try Denmark or Switzerland.

    A few things here...

    In case you haven't heard...yeah. The budget is a little tight. And you have some data to support your contention that "there is more than enough money in the USA to finance economic growth to whatever level you want"?

    Why don't you explain exactly what you think the problem is. I'm quite interested in you perspective.



    Denmark has been a mass welfare state since WWII. Their people have never had an opportunity to do anything with their money. Also of note, Denmark has slashed its corporate tax rate from over 50% in the late 80s to 22% in 2016…much lower than the US. Their economic growth the past 5 years? 2012: -4.9%; 2013: 1.9%; 2014: 1.3%; 2015: 0.2%; 2016: 0.9%. It's why they are lumped into the term "European growth rates."

    Switzerland…you might should check out their tax rates. They are some of the lowest in the world. FAIL. Their economic growth rates? 2012: 1.1%; 2013: 1.8%; 2014: 2.0%; 2015: 0.8%; 2016: 0.3%. It's why they also are lumped into the term "European growth rates."


    “History has shown that when a country's wealth is concentrated in the top income groups the economy doesn't do as well as when the middle and lower classes shared some of that wealth.” -Salty

    Exactly how do these examples prove that history has shown that? They don’t. I would argue that history actually shows the opposite.

    Let me start with the single biggest impact: Dodd-Frank, and the obummer administration piling on for 8 straight years. Banks have been so over-regulated that they cannot "take risks" in lending, and that ruined start-ups and small/mid-size businesses, who needed access to capital at times.

    EPA: piles of new regulations that caused many businesses to close, or that cost them big buck$, when that money could have been better spent, and/or some businesses operating "in the shadows" in violation of the EPA regulations who haven't been caught (yet).

    EEOC: regulations that made businesses guilty, until proven innocent, and in some cases, unable to prove themselves innocent since the regulation had only one outcome: guilty.

    obummercare: even with the so-called "small business" exceptions, the regulations drove up costs so much that small businesses could no longer compete for quality employees, who had to leave to find HCI somewhere.

    ADA: now regulated thru state fire marshal offices, small businesses struggled (and in many, many cases closed) because meeting the regulations was simply cost prohibitive.

    And, I'll remember some more. But, this is a start.

    That list hits home with most business people. According to Salty the list should help the economy grow.

    Re: Another Democrat double standard

    I should have started with this one: high corporate/business taxes. The US has some of the highest taxes in the world, which caused about 250 "large" companies to officially relocate to another country (Ireland was a big beneficiary).
