You want revenue? Everyone on both sides of the table should be able to agree. If you have a problem with these, let the American public help you, OUT OF OFFICE!
1. Find and remove all corporate tax rules that allow corporations to save money off shoring their manufacturing.This is to include the foreign tax credits to CEO income preferences for multi-million dollar salaries officially earned off shore, therefore exempt from US taxes. Tax them at DOUBLE if the US labor contribution is less than X percent. That should earn billions. This will help influence CEO’s to do the right thing. When in doubt, they will consider their own interest.
2. Identify all goods produced with known patent infringement of US intellectual properties, and impose an import duty to sell those goods to our market.A knowledgeable panel to identify with certainty the origin of the property, with US patent. Let those injured by these infringements apply, saving research costs. (Let the panel remain empowered for whole classes and countries if the shoe fits). Severe import duties, shared between the US government, to cover cost of action, and the lawful patent holder; who in turn will be paying income tax on the income, increasing revenue. This should bring in a fortune, as well as making jobs available here, by making foreign goods more expensive.
3. Cut Foreign Aid to any Country where the aide is known to enrich the leaders if it is a stated “Humanitarian” Aide.We all know this humanitarian aide is a joke in many countries. Teach them to fish (You could hire workers here to do that), instead of giving their leaders money to buy fish. It never shows up in the fish market…OR at least send them American goods or products, instead of money. This one should save a bunch and/or create American jobs.
This is a few I thought of, there must be a million more. What did you think of??? How about a clear cut example of cutting graft to save or collect money, we need one of those…
