Again we have Bergermeister in a rush to judge based on superficial (and prejudice) analysis of what happened:

 

 

Quote:
Republicans did not say whether they had asked the research service, a nonpartisan arm of the Library of Congress, to take the report out of circulation, but they were clear that they protested its tone and findings.
 
Don Stewart, a spokesman for the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said Mr. McConnell and other senators “raised concerns about the methodology and other flaws.” Mr. Stewart added that people outside of Congress had also criticized the study and that officials at the research service “decided, on their own, to pull the study pending further review.”
 
Senate Republican aides said they protested both the tone of the report and its findings. Aides to Mr. McConnell presented a bill of particulars to the research service that included objections to the use of the term “Bush tax cuts” and the report’s reference to “tax cuts for the rich,” which Republicans contended was politically freighted.

 

So they (along with others) raised concerns (which sounds like the first step in attempting to refute it) and spelled out specific issues they were concerned with (including apparently somewhat partisan rhetoric from this "non partisan" group*.)

 

But it gets even better:

 

 

Quote:
They also protested on economic grounds, saying that the author, Thomas L. Hungerford, was looking for a macroeconomic response to tax cuts within the first year of the policy change without sufficiently taking into account the time lag of economic policies. Further, they complained that his analysis did not take into account other policies affecting growth, such as the Federal Reserve’s decisions on interest rates.
 
“There were a lot of problems with the report from a real, legitimate economic analysis perspective,” said Antonia Ferrier, a spokeswoman for the Senate Finance Committee’s Republicans. “We relayed them to C.R.S. It was a good discussion. We have a good, constructive relationship with them. Then it was pulled.

 

My goodness, this sure sounds like someone is trying to refute the study in the normal and reasonable ways one would refute things.

 

*Whose study was authored by: Mr. Hungerford, a specialist in public finance who earned his economic doctorate from the University of Michigan, has contributed at least $5,000 this election cycle to a combination of Mr. Obama’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

 

Now can we be serious?

I'm really not sure what your statement means in relation to this article, but the article itself is completely bogus.

 

The author states that under current tax policy, "taxes on foreign profits of American firms are deferred until the companies repatriate the money to the United States."  The author then goes on to state that due to the credit given for taxes paid on foreign profits,"there is no double taxation".  How exactly does this make any sense at all?  If a company makes $1 million in say China with a corporate tax rate of 25% which means that the company now has $750k to bring back into the US.  I assume that this credit means that the company now pays taxes only on the $750k which they are bringing back into the US and they are being taxed at the 35% corporate tax rate which means that they pay another $262,500 in US taxes on this money they are bringing back.  This means that the company is paying an effective tax rate of over 50%.  How is this not double taxation?  How is this fair (since the left loves that concept) when in the US a company that makes $1 million would only pay the US 35% rate once which would be 15% less?  Now...  Since I'm not an accountant, please let me know if this math is somehow wrong.

 

I'm not sure why the federal government should be allowed to tax profits in a foreign country.  To me it seems that the current system only encourages companies not to bring those profits back into the country where they may be used for business purposes here.  If the company above leaves the money in China, isn't it logical that they would expand their business in China with that money when they could be expanding operations here if they could bring that money back without incurring the additional tax burden?  Seems to me that Mitt has the right idea here.

The tax credit means, as far as I understand it, that the company is taxed on the full profits, but the amount of tax it already paid abroad is deducted from what it owes. So the article is correct that the total tax paid is just what would have been paid if the profit had been made in the US, unless the foreign tax rate is higher than the US rate.

"Voter" fraud is a misnomer. It's not voters who are committing crimes, but those involved in the election process itself. One of the worst examples of this was in Florida 2000, when DataBase Technologies struck thousands of registered Democratic voters off the election register in Florida. When Al Gore was about to pull ahead in that notorious recount, the conservative leaning USSC halted the recount, because, in the words of former SC judge Rehnquist: "to continue the recount would seriously endanger the political career of George W. Bush".

There has to be more to his resignation than an affair. I mean, if the highest office in the land can be occupied by an adulterer (Bill Clinton), why must Patraeus step down?

Thanks for the link. I wasn't aware he left the GOP. That doesn't make me a liar.

My apologies for jumping to conclusions. But it has been strange around here. We've got Berger now claiming that Romney's run for President was all about the money and fresh-from-crawling-out-of-his-hole jimmac claiming he never thought Gore or Kerry would beat Bush.

 

If you didn't know better, you would think the GOP won the presidency last week. I've never seen such stuff coming from the winning partisans before.

If it's one thing that was reinforced this cycle, it's that a person's not liberal or conservative based on war policy.

 

Obama's more drone happy than any previous president and Guantanamo is still open, and the left completely let that slide in favour of entitlements, abortion and same-sex marriage.

 

That's where left vs. right is judged these days. And where does Bloomberg stand on those? 

 

Besides, this argument started largely by church groups being banned from donating outside food to shelters. In addition to Bloomberg's kicking churches entirely out of renting public schools. If Bloomberg is such a Republican, why would he be treating the party's base like this?

Worse, the article you were responding to is a situation where he is taking the most liberal/progressive/leftist/Democratic position possible. He knows best what people need and he's going to use his power to make sure they get it, the unintended consequences be damned.

I saw around teh net that some Republicans are having a hissy fit (yeah, another one) about the timing of the news regarding Patreus.

 

Turns out the GOP's own Eric Cantor (House Majority Leader) knew of the situation way back in October.

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."
