As the FACT (Financial Accountability and Corporate Transparency) Coalition our organization is part of put it in a new letter to the president, “We should not ask those struggling to find work, keep their jobs, feed their families and retire with the benefits they’ve earned to sacrifice more, while asking corporations to contribute the same or even less.”
If Congress is serious about being fiscally responsible and helping America’s small businesses, it will act to adopt Plan C, closing the offshore tax loopholes that drain our Treasury and undermine small businesses and our economy.
