And take their jobs and taxes with them.

With the new anti-capitilist mentality that has been promoted by the democrat party, maybe they just need to take up stakes in a more capitalist friendly environment. Between higher taxes, and unionization by intimidation bill more corporations need to reevaluate their future and that may mean leaving.

ZUG, Switzerland, March 12 (Reuters) - The tidy towns and mountain vistas of Switzerland are an unlikely setting for an oil boom.
Yet a wave of energy companies has in the last few months announced plans to move to Switzerland -- mainly for its appeal as a low-tax corporate domicile that looks relatively likely to stay out of reach of Barack Obama's tax-seeking administration.

Companies would be nuts to do so. They rule this country which is why the republic party changed the rules so that they could play like children running around free in a candy store.

it's the republic party's fault that the economy tanked.

It will take Obama and the Democratic party to begin bringing it back to life.

They started "moving out of this country" years ago. Under lower taxes.

So, what has the republican party done to allow American business run around like children in a candy store allowing our economy to tank?

And what has Barry done to change that?

amen, Republicans have no where to go, unless they go to Africa or something and then tell the citizens they are going to make them their slaves while working for the wealthy, the Republicans have no where to go, USA is the last hope for the Republicans because we are still growing

Hopefully this is the end of the evil corporate criminal mindset, hopefully people finally woke up to Reagan and Bush

That's correct. Some US companies moved to Mexico, then pulled up and moved again to VietNam and China for even more savings. Soon they'll move to the antarctic and convince the penguins to work for fish.

Except for CEO's at HQ most business has left the US in search of cheaper, less regulated production markets.
