    Born,
    It is only up to $1B in negotiations, hardly enough to dent the interest on the national debt. Probably will go into DOJ coffers to sue you and me.

    Taxes are how the gov't redistributes wealth so the politicians can get elected. Gov't is too big!

    Having only those over $250,000 pay taxes is just stupid. How do you think they get money? Print it? We don't have a have tax problem we are getting plenty of revenues, we have a spending problem.

    Congress wants a complex tax system so they can forward their socio-economic agenda. They can pick and choose winners and losers. Cut deals for those who donate to their campaign and tax those that don't. A VAT would hurt those who spend money and our economy is 70% consumer driven. In short, congress doesn't want to change the tax laws because it cannot win that battle. It will hurt someone and help someone. All that is needed is to change the inversion rule to 50%. End of story.

    Of course, if we would cut spending that would do more than anything else to increase GDP growth. Of course the problem is take the other guy's money not mine. Tax the other guy not me.

    The solution for companies is Kelly Services. You hire temps thru an agency. Hire the good ones and let the others go. No legal battles.

    Rich,

    Right on target. Remember when FOMC was waiting for the unemployment to drop below 6.1%. blah, blah, blah. If she was to raise rates then the US would really know how bad our economic recovery is. It would crash and burn. Eventually the printing presses must cause inflation. It'll be like Germany where they once needed wheel barrels to buy a loaf of bread.

    Microsoft is a cash cow and I'm not sure why they don't want to return some of the money to the shareholders! Instead they diworsify. Their cut of personnel is leading. More and more companies will be cutting staff and lowering hours to part time. Why because there is no growth in this economy and ACA. To get profits one must increase revenue and/or cut costs. The 6.1% unemployment is a joke. It counts part timers and full timers as equal. Of course we could really get to zero unemployment by having everyone stop looking. Bottom line, more cuts to labor costs.

    I don't see why I should be taxed so people in rural areas can get cable. I understood when it was for landlines. There are advantages and disadvantage to living in the country.

    I hope we hear more of inversion and what Congress is going to do about our firms buying foreign firms to avoid the 35% tax rate.

    China and Russia have standing orders for any new patents issued. I'm sure the classified portions of the C-17, C-22 aren't available.

    Besides probably most of the spare parts come from China anyway
