Orrin Hatch, JD Biography

Title:
Former US Senator (R-UT)
Position:
Pro to the question "Does Lowering the Federal Corporate Income Tax Rate Create Jobs?"
Reasoning:

“Every industrialized country around the globe understands that tax rates can determine whether or not businesses succeed or fail. And America’s job creators know that to remain competitive abroad and create jobs here at home, we’ll have to radically reform our nation’s tax code, transition to a territorial tax system, and reduce our corporate tax rate.”
