America Takes Dubious First-Place Honors: Highest Corporate Tax Rate

April 1, 2012 - 6:00pm

Overnight, the United States of America laid claim to a top spot it didn't want -- "the highest jobs-killing corporate tax rate in the indistrialized world," 39.2 percent.

Unfortunately, says a key member of the Business Roundtable, we're No. 1.

It happened Sunday, when Japan cut its rate to 36.8 percent. What to do about it now, how to get back in the competitive mix to keep the U.S. a leader in the worldwide economy -- that's a top priority for economists the country over -- but particularly for the Business Roundtable.

Conservatives Fear Foolhardy Barack Obama Will Release Oil Reserves

March 18, 2012 - 7:00pm

Conservative authorities claim President Barack Obama should not be entertaining ideas of releasing oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

And though the president says hes doing no such thing, a British official with knowledge of the discussion confirmed Obama raised the issue during a broad bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron last week.

In fact, Obama called for that solution as a candidate in 2008 when gasoline prices neared $4 per gallon.
