Interesting but one thing really struck me.
They are all swallowing Trump's claim that he will with some magical stroke of his presidential pen repatriate all those lost jobs.

People ask Sanders how he expects to accomplish his promises. Well, I would suggest asking Trump that. And not taking bullshit generalizations and pompous pronouncements as an answer.

Most economists will agree that NAFTA and many other free trade deals are a net benefit to all parties. Maybe, I don't believe it but maybe Trump could help SC, but how much would his changes hurt other areas of the country?
Thanks from Camelot and ubertubered

1 action (trump has proposed it) is to allow money to be repatriated with a 1 time low tax rate.. this would create a massive revenue increase for the government (1 time) and create wealth to invest in the US private sector.

The one problem with allowing the repatriation at a low tax rate is if those corporations do not use the funds to invest in America. If they use some of it to continue the putrid share buyback programs that have propped the market up, or invest it offshore.

Having said that, the repatriation should be allowed at a low tax rate. I would encourage a strong law that limits the incestuous nature that is the modern board-of-directors, wherein people are allowed to serve on many boards.

And lowering the corporate tax rate to 10% - 15% would be a smart move, that would encourage investment in America. Heck, do away with the corporate tax altogether.

That was tried during the Bush Administration and the majority of corporations used the money on stock buybacks and not investment. TERRIBLE IDEA. If they don't want to pay taxes, then let their money burn in hell overseas. We should not negotiate with economic terrorists.

Pray for my safety! He thinks I have conservative beliefs. That's what I told him around a year or two ago and I wasn't lying then. Maybe I should just pretend to be a generic left-liberal or social democratic. I don't think communist would go over too well.
