  • Senate Republicans Block Legislation to Bring Jobs Back to America, End Tax Giveaway to Corporations Shipping Jobs Overseas

    Senate Republicans today blocked a final vote on the Bring Jobs Home Act, legislation co-authored by U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow to stop rewarding companies that move jobs overseas and instead create new incentives to bring jobs home. Her legislation would end a tax loophole that currently pays for companies to move jobs overseas, while maintaining the deduction for those bringing jobs home. In addition, it would also provide a 20 percent tax credit to help companies with the cost of bringing jobs back to America. Last week, an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 93 senators voted to move forward on the Bring Jobs Home Act. But today, for the second time since 2012, Senate Republicans filibustered this commonsense legislation.
