    The whole idea of a “fair share” tax on overseas profits makes no sense. If a subsidiary of a U.S. based company does business in Europe and pays European taxes why should they also pay U.S. taxes on that income? Using the senator fauxcohantas logic, companies have a fair share to pay because they use infrastructure provided by the taxpayers. But they’re not using U.S. infrastructure for their European business. Maybe more inversions will lead to real tax reform and a general improvement in the business environment.

    Islam has been at war with the non-islamic world for 1,300 years. Sometimes they’re winning and sometimes they’re losing but the war never ends. To think you can somehow negotiate an end to all of this really does border on insanity.

    So now King joins my list of most despised Republicans, along with McCain, Graham, Ryan & Christie.

    Every Republican who voted for this bill should be primaried. If they’re going to vote like democrats we probably would be better off without them.

    Romney is the indispensable man. He’s got the competence, energy and ambition to fix so much of what’s broken. I hope he carries through on it.

    Control of the Senate could come down to one seat and this idiot just threw it away.

    Ammunition for the Death Panels? Obama’s way to fix the entitlement problem.

    We’d need 67 Mike Lee’s in the U.S. Senate to get a balance budget amendment (with teeth) passed. The only way to get it done is to craft an amendment and send it to the states, which can then call for a Constitutional Convention if this amendment isn’t passed by the Senate. Prior to reaching the magic number of 38 states approving the convention the self serving politicans in the Senate will pass the amendment to forestall the convention. I’d like to see the amendment specifiy that all federal mandates on the states are paid for by the federal government and subject to the spending cap.

    Funniest comment so far. Thanks.

    Ms. Schultz is actually a walking, talking campaign ad for the Republican party. In comparison to her any other point of view will be considered sane.

    38 states would have to call for a constitutional convention for one to convene. Prior to reaching that number Congress would pass a balanced budget amendment to head off the convention. That’s probably the only way this is going to get done.

    George Will is a RINO who likes to use $20 words. The last thing he wants is a real, conservative Republican in the White House. If I remember correctly, he was an early supporter of the dear leader.

    This clown seems unaware that Lincoln freed the slaves, Wilson segregated the military, FDR put Japanese Americans in concentration camps and a higher percentage of Republican Representative and Senators voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than did Dems.

    “You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory”

    The maurauding bands are known as the I.R.S.

    “and hire someone to protect against this”

    Yes, we do. They’re called accountants and tax lawyers.

    If this thug wasn’t so slow on the uptake we could have been out of there years ago.

    Romney (and the rest) should keep it simple. If we want jobs to stay or be created here, businesses need to find lower costs of production here than in India, China and other 3rd world hotspots. Since we’re not willing to work for 3rd world wages we need to level the playing field by lower other costs. Eliminate unnecessary regulations and drive the corporate tax rate for U.S. manufacturing to zero. That would offset our higher labor costs and reduce the likelihood of further outsourcing (Ford just announced the new plant in India) and would bring some of the jobs home. Let the rate for services and foreign manufacturing stay at 35%. The only candidate I’ve heard speak about this is Santorum but he’s just not getting any traction.
