Get rid of offshore corporation tax shelters. No tax “rebates” for corporations like GE that got a 3.2 BILLION dollar rebate. And don’t place the blame solely on the corporations either. As Chuck says:

Next time you pay your taxes, or stare at the withholdings on your pay stub, remember GE. And think about how much your tax share would decrease if taxes were based on ability to pay, and not on ability to hire accountants and tax lawyers.
