Mark Harris on Corporations

 

 


Lowering corporate taxes will produce more growth

Q: Economy: Support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?

Dan McCready (D): Yes. "With business-minded & forward-looking leadership, we can create so many more of these good-paying trade jobs in growing sectors like advanced manufacturing, clean energy & smart infrastructure."

Mark Harris (R): No. Believes lowering corporate taxes will produce more growth than federal spending. In 2013 said wouldn't have increased debt limit without a plan to cut government spending & lower taxes.

Q: Taxes: Support President Trump's tax cuts?

McCready: No. Rescind cuts for top 1%. The bill didn't do enough to cut middle-class taxes. Created 1.9 trillion debt. "This is not a real reform. It's a failure."

Harris: Yes. Called the tax cuts "vital." Said they made it possible for small businesses to hire new workers. General support for cutting personal & corporate taxes.

Continue to lower corporate tax rates

Q: What changes should be made to the tax code?

A: The recent tax reform is a step in the right direction.. The reduction in corporate taxes and possibly even more significant, the change from a worldwide tax system to a territorial one is extremely important. We must continue to lower corporate tax rates to stay competitive among industrial nations and entice companies to bring jobs to America while simultaneously reducing the complexity of the system for individuals, shorten tax brackets, and continue to lower tax rates, putting more money back into the hands of citizens who lose a large percentage on the repatriation of their dollars by the government compared to being back under the stewardship of the individual.
