The 60 Second Update with

Grover Norquist

1. What's the very first tax reform the next President should address?

The most important changes to the tax code are to one, cut the corporate income tax rate from 35%. The European average corporate tax rate is 25% and Ireland's is 12.5%. We cannot compete in the world with the world's second highest corporate income tax rate.

Two, moving to a national tax code rather than worldwide. America is virtually alone in taxing its citizens that work overseas. That makes it more expensive to hire an American worker to work in the oil fields of Saudi Arabia or in construction in South America or mining in Africa than to hire a German, Frenchman or Russian. For once, the rest of the world gets it right and we do it wrong. (Actually tort reform is the other key one we screw up worse.)

Third, we need to expand 40lk's so that all Americans can save more easily for education needs, homeownership and retirement.

 

 Question 2. When should we raise taxes?
