International Taxation: Study Countries That Exempt Foreign-Source Income Face Compliance Risks and Burdens Similar to Those in the United States | PSYOP | Scoop.it

A debate is underway about how the United States should tax foreign-source, corporate income. Currently, the United States allows domestic corporations to defer tax on the earnings of their foreign subsidiaries and also gives credits for foreign taxes paid, while most other developed countries exempt the active earnings of their multinational corporations' foreign subsidiaries from domestic tax.

Van Hollen Reintroduces DISCLOSE Act | Congressman Chris Van Hollen | PSYOP | Scoop.it

“The American people deserve a political system that is fair, transparent, and accountable. This legislation would help do that by ensuring that people know who is bankrolling the ads designed to influence their votes.

#OpDejaVu's insight:

It's time to get the freeloaders, bribe-takers and inside traders in #Congress out of Uncle Sam's wallet.  This is a good start.

President Obama’s Greatest Accomplishment Is Exposing Un-American Republicans

President Obama’s Greatest Accomplishment Is Exposing Un-American Republicans | PSYOP | Scoop.it
it is worth taking stock of the current President for two specific reasons. First, what Barack Obama accomplished that will cement his place in history as one of the country's greatest Presidents, including his greatest accomplishment of all.
#OpDejaVu's insight:

Because Obama was elected president, Republican politicians  across the nation have devoted their efforts to undermining him and bringing misery to honest, hard-working and law-abiding voters.  The GOP leadership shows no shame in their disloyalty, and no interest in making our great nation the best it can be.  They are pitiful indeed.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today introduced far-reaching legislation to rebuild America’s crumbling network of roads, bridges and transit systems and other infrastructure projects. The five-year plan would invest $1 trillion and create or maintain at least 13 million decent-paying jobs, said Sanders, the Senate Budget Committee ranking member.

I stands for Infrastructure: The guaranteed job creator ignored by the GOP leadership.  It also stands for independent: The way many citizens will vote if Senator Sanders runs for president in 2016.  Go Bernie!  :-)
