The first question that came to mind after I read the proposal is: how will this affect regulation? Since the crisis, large companies have increased the size of their compliance departments because the government has kept such a watchful eye. Will this now shift to individuals? I wonder if that shift has an effect on the government's cost to regulate, maybe it doesn't carry an effect at all. Your study concluded that this new proposal will bring half of the current revenue, so I'm interested to see your recommendations to supplement the current proposal. Like you said, removing the corporate income tax brings investments back to the United States and fuels the economy. As well, I agree with the approach to balance the tax burden on companies that are more equity-financed vs. debt-financed. If companies make decisions based on the way they are taxed, then the tax code is encouraging corporations to be highly leveraged. See more
