State of California secondary Archives: on Corporations

Rick Santorum: Cut the corporate tax to zero, to create jobs

I've put forward a plan because I think it's the best plan that actually can pass the Senate. And what I focused on was a sector of the economy that can get Democratic votes.

We cut the corporate tax from 35% to zero, because we want to build the great middle of America again, get those jobs that were shipped overseas by companies that were looking too make a profit because they couldn't any longer do it here, and bring those jobs back to America.

We cut that corporate rate to zero. We pass repatriation to get those resources that are overseas, $1.2 trillion, and we bring them back here.

We'll create jobs, and I'll get Democratic votes to pass it. We'll bring things together, because those industrial state Democrats--and I know, because I'm from an industrial state--they will vote for this bill. You want to get something going, elect someone who knows how to get things done.
