Subject: Refurn manufacturing to USA

Comment: Don't worry about "fair" - Good manufacturing jobs should be the main goal. A consumption tax would put a tariff on imports. My employees' "take-home" is about half of their payroll cost. Put the whole Social Security deduction on the employee's paycheck and make it deductible on their income tax. Raise working-people's tax-free base. Encourage dividends by making them deductible to the corporation - not the recipient. Inheritance tax should be paid when the assets are sold - Just about all of our basic industries remaining are foreign owned.
