Garret Graves: Reduce taxes, fees, bureaucracy, and regulation

CREATING JOBS REQUIRES MORE INNOVATION, MUCH, MUCH LESS D.C. Bureaucracy stifles innovation--it's a job-killer and, unfortunately, bureaucracy, regulations, fees and taxes are on the rise. If we are going to create an economic explosion in this country, we must allow the private sector to succeed. This includes reducing the reach and intrusion of Washington, D.C. Our small businesses will be free to invest resources, hire people, buy equipment, and make long-term investments. By reducing the tax rates and eliminating red tape, we can launch thousands of new ventures across South Louisiana and strengthen our small businesses climate--the backbone of every thriving economy in the world.

Bobby Jindal: Eliminated burdensome business taxes

We have overhauled our ethics laws, revamped workforce development programs, and eliminated burdensome business taxes. Every challenge we have taken on has been about making Louisiana the best place in the world to find a job and raise a family. Our work is starting to pay off.

Bobby Jindal: We paid companies, via loopholes, to not pay corporate tax

As it stands today, we have over 460 loopholes on the books that make our system complex, volatile and unfair. Under the current system, if you have a lobbyist and lawyer, you have a loophole.

Let me put that a different way. In 2011, we actually went in the hole on corporate income tax by some $76 million. In other words, we actually paid companies through loopholes to not pay corporate income tax.

Think about that--we sent more taxpayer dollars to corporations than they paid in income taxes to the state. At the same time, the average Louisiana family of four paid nearly $2,600 in taxes.

In other words, we actually took money from families and used it to pay companies to not pay corporate income tax. That goes to show you our tax system is unfair and riddled with loopholes and exemptions.
