    will be to cut taxes on the trillions in corporate profits stored offshore--something the big players have been pushing for.  It will accompanied by a claim that it will promote jobs. Potentially, it could create some, but the equation that companies use in deciding where to conduct business is much more complex and probably will still rely mostly on offshore operations.  It would, however, give the .1% more freedom in spending their wealth...particularly when it comes to spending it to influence Congress and elections, and buying up public resources for private gain.

    Speak the truth, but ride a fast horse.
