Companies continue to state that taxes are killing their businesses. Yet, most companies are the most profitable as they have ever been. Taxes are not what kill businesses. Greedy, Unethical Republicans do kill businesses. Watch American Greed on CNBC. I am not sure you will find a story of one liberal on that show. Statistically, there should be a few. However, greed and taking advantage of people with no concerns and stealing and corruption are generally traits of Conservatism. If the Company would like to attract top talent, it should pay off the student loans, regardless of taxes and seek other avenues for tax reductions or fire a few of the unethical players at the top of their pyramid, and they will have more than enough funds to assist their good employees with paying off school loan debt.
