Ron Crumpton: Offshore profit shifting needs to end

The simple fact is that we could pay for [domestic programs] by changing the tax code concerning offshore profit shifting, which allows multi-billion dollar companies like GE, Boeing and others to avoid paying any U.S. taxes. Currently many of these companies are not only paying no taxes, they are getting refunds. This needs to end.

Richard Shelby: Don't smother small banks with unnecessary regulations

If you ask a White House spokesperson, Shelby's proposal to overhaul the nation's banking regulations is just another example of Wall Street interests getting their way. Not so fast, according to Shelby, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee: "Community and regional banks that had nothing to do with the financial crisis should not be smothered by unnecessary regulations originally designed for Wall Street," Shelby said. "These burdensome regulations from Washington are making it harder for community and regional banks to do the things that grow our economy, such as small business lending."

Shelby's Financial Regulatory Improvement Act would revise provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, a 2,000-page bill that was passed in 2010 and implemented sweeping regulations to America's banks & financial institutions.

Shelby said while the bill was touted as "Wall Street reform" many of the regulations have negatively impacted community and regional banks.

Ron Crumpton: Transfer $11 billion from corporate tax loopholes to schools

Richard Shelby does not serve the people.Every time the interest of the people is pitted against the interest of big business, big business gets the support of Richard Shelby. It is time for the people of Alabama to elect a progressive senator who will work for what is in their best interest and not the best interest of the political fat cats and big business executives that fund their campaigns.
