Tim Pawlenty on Corporations
Republican MN Governor
We have the 3rd highest corporate tax rate in the developed world. Our personal income and sales tax rates are among the highest in the country, and Minnesota offers no preferential rate for capital gains. We need to face the facts: Minnesota's tax system is costing us jobs, and our tax code needs to change to meet the challenges and opportunities of our time.
"You probably haven't read those plans," I asserted. "Governor Pawlenty, have you read the report that the carmakers have just submitted? I bet you haven't."

I responded by strongly reasserting the importance of the auto industry to the American economy.
