It has been eight years since the end of a painful economic recession in the U.S, forcing the nation to make a decision turn boldly toward new opportunities or continue down the same path that has led to slow job gains and weak overall growth. The choice for America’s leaders, especially those in Congress, should be clear. The time is now for comprehensive reform that gets our economy moving.

Tax Day. The annual rite of passage where, nationwide, Americans fill out paperwork or hire an accountant, to ultimately hold their noses as they write a check payable to Uncle Sam.

The American corporate tax system is broken. Faced with one of the highest tax rates in the world, many multinational corporations in the United States move their operations and reported profits offshore or undertake “inversions” to relinquish their American tax nationality.
