President of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist wants to lower the corporate tax rate by 10%. During a breakfast at the Grand Hyatt overlooking The Courtney Campbell Causeway in Tampa this morning he said a 25% maximum corporate tax rate would bring more jobs to U.S. cities.
Norquist created a pledge for politicians he hopes they will consider and sign. It’s a written promise to not raise taxes and it plays into the plan to cut the corporate tax rate. Norquist said it holds elected officials and those seeking election more accountable.
“Having elections where the politicians promise to do one thing and then when they get into office do what ever they God damn want is I guess technically democratic – you had an election – but it in no way reflects the will of the people.”
