Bob Young on Corporations



Cut corporate taxes; tax those who pay zero taxes

Everyday Americans cannot understand the tax code. It needs to be simple and fair. Approximately half of Americans pay no federal tax and therefore have no stake in how the tax system affects everyone else. Everyone must pay something. We must also lower the corporate tax rate that is one of the highest in the world and is keeping companies from creating good-paying jobs here in the United States.

Regulatory overreach hurts small businesses

Q: On business: what do you want to change?

A: "[On my tour of Michigan businesses], all of those businesses complained about regulatory overreach. The federal government in the last five years has spun out more business crushing regulation than is imaginable. And what people don't understand is that 70% of people employed in our country isn't employed by the GM's or Ford's of our country, it's by small businesses."

Regulation hurts liberty AND hurts communities

"Liberals like Debbie Stabenow have done everything imaginable to make us weak and the people dependent on government," said Young, who graduated from Harvard and Harvard Law. "I know, I went to school with the people that trained Obama. You only have to look at Detroit and Flint to see what 50 years of liberal policy has done to those once proud, self-reliant communities."

"Our founders created a limited federal government because they understood that unchecked government deprived the people of their liberty," Young said. "Ordinary people understand that our federal government is bloated and out of control. It broke our healthcare system. It lets our veterans die and it spends our money recklessly and attempts to regulate our every, acting decision. Debbie is the chief offender of this and its chief cheerleader."

I believe in limited government (but not no-government)

"I'm not a no-government person, but I'm a limited government person. I want a federal government that operates within its Constitutional rights and we need leaders like (Rep. John Moolenaar) that are committed to our Constitution and not only recognize that these are government failures, but are willing to fight for change," said Young, who was the longest serving chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court.
