Here’s a new piece on Repatriation Tax Amnesty Windfall: http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/economy-budget/317227-big-business-is-holding-us-jobs-hostage-trump-should-not.
The publisher wants me to induce clicks, but here are rejected titles and the intro:
How Trump Gets Jobs without Paying Tax Ransom
How Corporate America Demands $500 Billion Ransom to Create Jobs
President Trump wants to create jobs. Global corporations want to trick him into giving them a tax cut. They are holding $2.5 trillion untaxed offshore. They’ll bring those trillions home and create jobs, they say. But first, America must give them a $500 billion tax windfall. No tax break, no jobs. The President should have three problems with this Repatriation Tax Amnesty:
It doesn’t work.
It mocks his base.
It rewards his enemies.
There is an easier way to “make American great again.” President Trump can make companies pay the tax without a tax cut, and then watch them bring the money home.
