I agree! If an American firm outsources overseas, then they shouldn't be allowed to sell their products here.

It makes too much sense, the politicrats want the power of manipulation. The tax code is used to feather their own nests.

The politicans are no different than anyone else. Plenty of self interest and hypocracy! For those with the balls to watch...... Tea Party Hypocrisy? Some Lawmakers With Tea Party Ties Are on the Government Dole - ABC News This is one of the reasons why nothing ever changes. All talk until it affects you, then it's lies and deceit!

except it isn't, it would be a huge tax cut to the rich and a huge tax increase on most working people, at 20% everyone making 50k or less would pay A LOT MORE, while the rich and super rich pay a lot less, we have tried trickle down economics for the last 30+ years, IT DOESN'T WORK, the richest of the rich got richer for sure but the middle class has shrunk a good bit from it

Cut spending rather than promoting class warfare.
