McDonald’s CEO: ‘In Order to Create Jobs in America, You’re Going to Have to Cut Taxes’

Posted on November 7, 2011 by Conservative Byte




McDonald’s Corporation President and CEO Jim Skinner says for things to turn around in the American economy, spending and taxes must be curbed, especially towards business. Jeff Randall writes in the Telegraph on his upcoming interview with Skinner on Sky News Jeff Randall Live:

“‘The question is, how can we get the ox out of the ditch?’ Mr Skinner said. ‘In order to create jobs in America, you’re going to have to cut taxes… particularly in the business community.

‘We pay some of the highest [corporate] taxes around the world. There needs to be some leveling.’

Asked about federal borrowing, he said: ‘It’s not a good story… the government has to spend less. We have to grow the economy, grow GDP… and you have to be able to do it in an organic way and not through borrowings and increasing debt.’”

The old premier here in Alberta announced a couple of years ago a new tax hikes for corps. Libs cheered ,, yippeee.

In a matter of days corps pulled out of AB and moved elsewhere, tons of jobs lost .

He changed his tune shortly thereafter.

The more jobs you create for people ,the more taxes you can collect from said people . Pretty simple ,, why is it so hard for government to grasp..

Good post FH !

Hello! History has proven you are correct Mr. CEO Jim Skinner so we don’t need a refresher course every 4 years.
My question is, “ What are you, Mr. CEO Jim Skinner, going to do to make these changes?
Words are cheap, I want to see some action!

The fact is, we pay for the lifestyle we expect. Without taxes, our lifestyles would be totally different and much harder. America would be a third world country. The less we pay, the less we get in return. Americans pay less taxes today since 1958 and is ranked 32nd out of 34 of the top tax paying countries. Chile and Mexico are 33rd and 34th. The Republicans are lying when they say that we pay the highest taxes in the world and are only attacking taxes to reward corporations and the wealthy and to weaken our infrastructure and way of life. So next time you object to paying taxes or fight to abolish taxes for corporations and the wealthy, keep this quote in mind…

“I like to pay taxes. With them, I buy civilization.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Judging by your posts, Methuselah, if you could run the United States, in less than one generation we'd all be second class citizens in a third world country! :roll:

I see you still don't know feces about the XL Pipeline story in Nebraska, even though you were schooled on it earlier. Must be hell going through life old, drunk, and stupid, eh? :wink:

I am NOT against the pipeline. But then once again, you prove you know less and less about more and more every day. Pretty hard to debate something with you when you can't hear and you won't listen, but that's been your MO for years. You couldn't say enough bad about Bush and his "oil buddies", but yet here you are championing a pipeline and shreiking "drill, baby, drill!" You can't have it both ways, Methuselah. But I guess you fancy yourself as a walking definition of a hypocrite.

an acceptable quote... what is not acceptable is the waste, fraud and abuse now currently being funded with the taxes that are supposed to fund our civilization...

The fact is, we pay for the lifestyle we expect. Without taxes, our lifestyles would be totally different and much harder. America would be a third world country. The less we pay, the less we get in return. Americans pay less taxes today since 1958 and is ranked 32nd out of 34 of the top tax paying countries. Chile and Mexico are 33rd and 34th. The Republicans are lying when they say that we pay the highest taxes in the world and are only attacking taxes to reward corporations and the wealthy and to weaken our infrastructure and way of life. So next time you object to paying taxes or fight to abolish taxes for corporations and the wealthy, keep this quote in mind…

“I like to pay taxes. With them, I buy civilization.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Do you feel it is acceptable that all these needed programs and budgets must suffer drastic cuts so wasteful programs can be funded?

Wasteful programs are wrong, very wrong. Filling someone's pockets with my tax money is CRIMINAL.

And no, the government should never be designed to be the care giver of all citizens.

1. Do not use Medicare. I don't. I pay for my own medical care and several others.

2. Do not use Social Security. It won't be there, so again- not a problem. Why is the money not still in the account that was not suppose to be touched for anything else?

3. Do not become a member of the US military, who are paid with tax dollars. Military members have given their lives for the protection of our country. They are being paid for their service, a "real job". Some taxes are necessary. Not excessive!

4. Do not ask the National Guard to help you after a disaster. Government controlled disaster relief has become wasteful. Time after time, it is proven that citizens will help themselves more efficiently. Allow volunteers to be volunteers. Anyone remember Texas wildfires and FEMA?

5. Do not call 911 when you get hurt. 911 is a tax charged by local governments. If California want's to squander their local tax dollars- I don't care.

6. Do not call the police to stop intruders in your home. Again, local taxes with local effect. The local citizens can determine the need and efficient use of their own money.

7. Do not summon the fire department to save your burning home. Local.

8. Do not drive on any paved road, highway, and interstate or drive on any bridge. Any paved road? Most of these are local. Only interstates are maintained by federal government. And why? So that we have quick routes to mobilize our military.

9. Do not use public restrooms. Local and really how many are there? I say to you boy geniuses out there that don't like corporations- don't use McDonald's, Burger King's, Subway's, lets shorten this list to just encompass all restaurants, clothing stores, automotive stores, let's shorten this again and just say any business' bathrooms when a public one isn't available.

10. Do not send your kids to public schools. Local issue.

11. Do not put your trash out for city garbage collectors. I pay the city to pick up my trash each month. I paid someone else, when I lived in a rural area- not much difference. I would be happy to have an option for private competition.

12. Do not live in areas with clean air. Now your claim the air? Pretty sure God made the air and you don't have a thing to do with it.

13. Do not drink clean water. Local. I PAY the city for more water. I have also drilled water wells. Did you clean my water?

14. Do not visit National Parks. Don't tax me for National Parks I don't get to visit. And then don't double charge me for the ones when I do.

15. Do not visit public museums, zoos, and monuments. Again, don't charge me for the ones I don't get to visit. And then don't double charge me for the ones when I do.

16. Do not eat or use FDA inspected food and medicines. I'm actually okay with food inspection as a part of national security. The mammoth that the FDA has grown into requiring millions of dollars to be spent to get approval of any new drug is ridiculous and adds more the cost of our health care than most realize. Also, there has been numerous instances showing the FDA stopping the use of appropriate generic drugs to provide a monopoly to one player.

17. Do not bring your kids to public playgrounds. Local and don't charge me for the play grounds I don't use.

18. Do not walk or run on sidewalks. Local- we don't have them or need them.

19. Do not use public recreational facilities such as basketball and tennis courts. Local, and we don't have them. So apparently we don't need them.

20. Do not seek shelter facilities or food in soup kitchens when you are homeless and hungry. What are churches for? Don't tax me into oblivion and I can do more to help the needy in my area than the government can any day. Give me back my money, give them back their freedom from being dependent on the government, and we will cross paths. When we do, not only can I assist them in their physical needs, but there will be a chance to have a social connection as well. With this social connection, much more can occur, including an opportunity to share faith and give someone hope. With hope, anything can be accomplished.

21. Do not apply for educational or job training assistance when you lose your job. I found another job. And then I created my own. Much happier because of it.

22. Do not apply for food stamps when you can’t feed your children. I found a job. Not my favorite, but it was a job and I fed my own family.
There is something good in that. There is something good in being productive. There is something good in helping someone that is down on their luck and knowing that someone (a real live person) cares. Faceless stamps don't make the hurt of a loss job go away. Faceless stamps won't help you get another job. Faceless stamps won't give you guidance when your most ready to heed it. Everyone thinks that technology is the reason for the collapse of personal interaction. I believe it is the dependance of people on the government.

23. Do not use the judiciary system for any reason. There again you have missed the boat. The judiciary system is part of the minimal government. There has always been a need for arguments to be settled since the creation of the second person. I say, limit the frivolous law suites.

24. Do not ask for an attorney when you are arrested and do not ask for one to be assigned to you by the court. Local issue again dude.

25. Do not apply for any Pell Grants. Don't give out any Pell Grants. Is the recipient going to pay ME back?

There is the first 25. Pretty easy stuff the handle. Yes, a significant reduction in the Federal government could be made and the United States would not fall off the face of the Earth. It would actually be a much better place to live.
