Pro to the question "Does Lowering the Federal Corporate Income Tax Rate Create Jobs?"
Reasoning:

“The U.S. tax system has been the outlier in the world economy for far too long. Moving to a territorial tax system and reducing the corporate tax rate will allow companies to grow in the United States, and will also attract more in-bound investment, leading to more jobs.”
