Trump wants to punish American companies

....who do their manufacturing abroad. He wants to dish our punitive taxes against them.

Is this how a conservative would act?

Wouldn't a true conservative try to, instead, make business conditions on American soil more hospitable to our businesses by giving business owners more freedom and incentives? Wouldn't he try to improve the environment for our companies and corporations so that they wouldn't need to look abroad?

Seems more like a carrot and stick approach. He wants to reduce corporate taxes to companies that build their plants here and punish those that go out of country for cheap labor that want to sell their goods here. Can't say I am against that approach!

Why would you punish a company that does business outside our borders? Whatever happened to freedom?

I don't blame businesses for taking their manufacturing facilities to other places. I blame the government for creating a hostile business environment that encourages companies to seek better opportunities abroad.

Trump's way is a leftist-libbie way.

Look, Cruz is my guy and I don't know why it seems to fall to me to explain Trumps policies but I will try again! He wants to cut the over regulation, reduce taxes and create a business friendly environment here to create jobs. On the other hand he wants a fair market where goods created out of country with cheap and sometimes forced labor are not dumped on our country. He has continuously said he wants to create a fair playing field where our domestic companies can compete! On this part of the debate he is right on the money!

The "job" falls to you because you're the only one (so far) to respond in this thread.

I never hear Trump talking about reducing regulations and taxes for businesses. All I hear is that he wants to punish companies that choose to make their products abroad. That does not seem to be a conservative policy to me.

Well lets see..
Quote:
No business of any size, from a Fortune 500 to a mom and pop shop to a freelancer living job to job, will pay more than 15% of their business income in taxes. This lower rate makes corporate inversions unnecessary by making America’s tax rate one of the best in the world.
No family will have to pay the death tax. You earned and saved that money for your family, not the government. You paid taxes on it when you earned it.

Don't know of too many leftys that would really support this. do you?

You obviously haven't listened to a real interview with him! I have heard him talk of just that on many repeated occasions including when I attended one of his rallies here in Jacksonville! He was all over this issue in the MSNBC town hall last week with specific answers. You should be able to find the video on line. It is well worth watching.

Why not..?  With many Fortune 500 companies paying 0% and the average effective tax rate for a company being 12.5% ..  Having ALL business pay 15% would be dramatically better.

How could he do that with american workers earning ten to a hundred times what foreigners will accept for the same work?
