President Donald Trump added a new sweetener to his sales pitch for tax reform Wednesday, saying average Americans would benefit greatly if U.S. corporations bring money home from abroad under a special low tax rate.

Polling has shown that a cut in corporate taxes is unpopular, though there is strong support for a cut in small-business rates. So Republicans have been trying to make the case that lower corporate taxes will benefit all Americans.

The corporations already pay pretty low taxes since they have good accountants (and lobbyists). Now, Trump, s an international corporation's "head", wants to lower the taxes of international corporations even more.

Probably more of the Russian anarchist Antichrist thing; corporations being the work of Satan and all.

Have you ever looked at the percentage of the Federal tax revenues represented by corporate income taxes, Bleu?
