Crush­ing bur­den

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Per­haps it is not the overzeal­ous free trade pol­icy that is driv­ing U.S. com­pa­nies over­seas, as al­leged by reader Frank Madarasz in his let­ter to the ed­i­tor in the July 30 edi­tion, but rather the fact that the U.S. now has the sec­ond-high­est cor­po­rate tax rate among in­dus­tri­al­ized coun­tries. Demo­crat prom­ises to raise the cor­po­rate tax rate even higher will drive even more com­pa­nies over­seas, where their prof­its will be safer from greedy gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials. Of course free trade will con­tinue to be cited as the cause; surely a win — for the Democrats. Dave Erchull Tuc­son, Ari­zona
