How the Clinton and Sanders Infrastructure Plans Measure Up

Dave Johnson | Posted 12.01.2015 | Business
Dave Johnson

Clinton's infrastructure plan says only that it will be paid for through "business tax reform." It does not detail the nature of the reforms that would pay for this spending.

A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Idea

Jaimie Woo | Posted 04.28.2015 | Politics
Jaimie Woo

A strangely popular proposal would give companies a temporary tax holiday, letting corporations "repatriate" their money at an extremely low tax rate, thereby encouraging more corporate tax dodging in the future. You'd think that common sense and strong opposition would be enough to kill a bad policy. Not in Washington, D.C., apparently.

Another year has come and gone, and 2015 presents an opportunity to start fresh. With that in mind, it's time for the newly minted 114th Congress to make the right choices for the public's interest in its New Year's resolutions, and making the tax code fairer is a good place to start.

Like a bad penny, this tax repatriation idea just keeps coming back. You know, the one where you offer a bribe to multinational corporations in the form of a big tax cut to "repatriate" their foreign earnings.

Martin Sullivan

In 2012 Pfizer reported its worldwide effective tax rate was 21.2 percent. That is considerably lower than the U.S. statutory rate of 35 percent, but it is far above the single digit rate you might expect if Pfizer shifted most of its profits into tax havens.

Though many don't realize it, "no man left behind" is much more than an expression. The U.S. military genuinely does all it can to recover soldiers from all conflicts, and for more than a decade, I've had the privilege of contributing to cases pertaining to WWI, WWII, Korea and Southeast Asia.

I do not enjoy being forced to do something at gunpoint because a group of crazies stand in the way of better policies. But, I also do not think that my pique ought to prevent 3M people from getting jobs. Here, then, is the modest bipartisan compromise, entirely focused on jobs.
