The US ranks either the highest or very close to the highest in taxes on businesses.  drmuscle wins.
As I said there is very very little difference between the corporate tax rate here and most other countries we are lossing companies to.

FMLA costs a company in productivity, and the replacement labor is generally more expensive. It is overtime paid to another employee, or temp labor not as familiar with the job. It also costs companies missed dead lines which can mean lost business.

When I worked at NWA we had affirmative action requirements to meet. There also was hiring done to fend off law suits. Affirmative action comes into effect if you take any govt money. So we flew govt employees, therefor we were required to meet their standard. Home Depot told all their stores at one time not to sell to govt entities knowingly just for this reason.

As far as taxes go, I'm going to have to disagree that we are not consistently higher, but taxes are so convoluted it's hard to nail down clearly.
So don't do business with the govt.  That is a choice.

U.S corporations pay only 10 percent of federal taxes.  In 2001 they paid 21 percent.  In WWII they paid 50 percent.  They might be charged higher taxes than lots of places, but they escape the majority of those taxes.
I win.

The U.S. has left the major features of its business tax system unchanged over the past fifteen years. Meanwhile, other countries have been changing theirs, potentially hurting the competitiveness of the United States. Perhaps most emblematic of the trend abroad is lower corporate tax rates in virtually all developed nations. As a result, the United States now has the second-highest statutory tax rate among OECD member nations.

Figure 1 below tells this story: The U.S. became a low-tax rate country with enactment of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, dropping its federal corporate tax rate from 46 to 34 percent. But since then the reduction in corporate tax rates by most other developed nations has left the United States in the unenviable position of a high-tax rate country.1
Mexico, where we are losing lots of our jobs has a 35 % corporate tax rate and in the US today they only pay 10% wow, why go south?

Name one single thing that the govt has done to create a poor environment for the corporations factories.
High taxes, SSI, FMLA, affirmative action, and taking all regulation that most agree to be good, and taking it way to far, and the worst ever will be the up and coming cap and trade system.
PWND!

Sarah is through as a national politician.  She is a national joke much like Dan Quayle.

V, you say the cost of doing business is very high in US but at  the same time those same businessmen love to charge a good amount for their business.  Have you ever thought that the cost of living is also very high in US?  Businessmen loved to charge huge amounts for ever increasing home prices and oil prices and so on.
Trip, in your last sentence are you referring to the cost builders are charging for new homes?
They dont get that people "PAID" those prices, they forget that people actually make their own decisions as to weather they should buy something or not.
I agree. Even if you found a hundred dollars in the middle of the street and it's free to you.It's still worth 100 dollars.
