Here's a letter that I sent recently to the Washington Post:
promote economic growth, President Obama said yesterday in Accra that
"No business wants to invest in a place where the government skims 20
percent off the top" ("Text of Obama's speech in Ghana," July 11).
absolutely correct. So I trust that he'll offer the same advice to the
U.S. Congress, for this body taxes every dollar of corporate income
above $50,000 at a rate of 25 percent – and raises this rate to 39
percent on corporate incomes between $100,000 and $335,000. The
average tax rate on corporate incomes higher than $335,000 is greater
than 35 percent.
Surely Mr. Obama's understanding of the
destructiveness of government confiscation ought not be lost on Rep.
Pelosi, Sen. Reid, and Co.
