Jumpstart America: My tax reform plan, with a business perspectiveThe United States tax code has not been overhauled since 1986. The policies that may have worked for us almost 30 years ago just don't work the same today. In the ever increasing global economy in which we now live, the United States has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, leaving American companies wanting to do business elsewhere.
