Doug Collins on Corporations
Cut the corporate income tax rate & capital gains tax
Everyone says our tax system needs a major overhaul. It's now time for someone to actually do it. The U.S. has the highest corporate income tax rate in the industrialize world. We must cut this rate in order to incentivize international businesses to
invest in the America we all know and love. as well as incentivize American businesses to expand jobs here instead of shipping jobs overseas. We must also eliminate the capital gains tax, the death tax and lower the income tax rate in order to broaden
the base and create jobs for hardworking, American taxpayers. Additionally, the Bush tax cuts should be made permanent. There is a level of uncertainty that exist among investors, small business owners, and families
that taxes will increase at the end of 2012, when these cuts are set to expire. Unless Congress acts quickly, uncertainty will continue to grow and the economy will continue to lag.

- Undermine the local delivery system that has been the cornerstone of job training programs
- Establish a program that is based on political boundaries (states) rather than on economic regions and local labor markets, or the naturally evolving areas in which workers find paying work
- Eliminate a strong role for local elected officials but require that they continue to be fiscally liable for funds spent in their local areas
- Change what was once a program targeted to those most in need--economically disadvantaged adults and youth and special population groups like veterans, migrant farm workers, and low income seniors--into a block grant to governors
- Contribute to the emerging division between those American's who have the requisite skills to find employment and those who do not.
