Hey Don...you elected one "no money/no business" experience person to the WhiteRead More House...like what you got? Demonizing the successful/rich is a continuing Democratic tactic that only idiots believe. When cash flows and businesses prosper, people have jobs. We don't need any more politicians who do not understand a balance sheet. You might just try and believe some people have more than enough money and just want to give back and do something for the rest of the folks...like, at least, through out your garbage!

Rick Johnson – I agree that Illinois has to be more competitive, it’s just a fact ofRead More life. But is there an end to how far we should stoop? It is not just Illinois, but even the business friendly states that are losing out to foreign competition. And while red states are whipsawing blue states, all our states are being adversely affected. In 2013 according to Walgreen’s annual report, they paid about $134 million in state taxes which was about 2.2% of their earnings. What that does not reflect is the $6 million tax credit over a 10 year period nor does it reflect $625,000 in state incentives to train employees. Souce: http://redecatur.com/walgreens-to-renounce-u-s-citizenship/. But, I thought that the Illinois corporate tax rate was between 7% to 9%. In the US we previously argued which was better between red & blue states, and perhaps Walgreens would consider moving to Texas since their stated tax rate is 0% (Not really accurate since they have other ways of taxing corporations) but cheaper none the less. The nominal tax rate for the US is 35%, but corporations with a tax accounting department never actually pay that amount, and in fact many profitable corporations actually net rebates rather that actually paying taxes. I should clarify that those corporations that actually accrue a tax liability will defer the majority of if and therefore the cash actually transferred to the federal/state government is delayed for years. That amounts to an interest free loan in my opinion. But, individuals do not get to defer their taxes indefinitely like corporations. According to Walgreens 2013 annual report, their pre-tax earnings were $3,895 million and they paid $1,122 million (28.8%) but when one considers their tax deferral of $816 million their effective tax rate in 2013 was actually 7.9% As I understand, Switzerland’s nominal tax rate is 17%. I do not know if their effective tax rate is less than that. But I have to ask the questions. Are Illinois taxes really that high when one considers incentives and tax breaks? OK, so Texas’ state tax rate is lower and I understand the allure of moving to Texas, but Walgreens like many other corporations are no longer whipsawing U.S. states, they are saying to hell with all the states and denouncing their U.S. allegiance by exploiting the benefits of inversion. So are the red states taxes too high as well? Or is it the US tax rate that is too high. Again, I want to point out the difference between the nominal rate of 35% vs. Walgreens effective tax rate of 7.9%. Oh and another thing to consider, when corporations leave the burden falls on the individual tax payers. But, that burden is further compounded when those jobs like the ones in Deerfield IL are moved to Switzerland; there are less employed people in the pot to pay the deficits left by the inversion exploiters. I also read where Walgreens received $16.7 billion from Medicare & Medicaid in 2013. Should we maybe consider legislation to spend taxpayer dollars from Medicare & Medicaid to US based pharmacies? Or at least corporations that maintain their headquarters in the US. And I bet the savings that Walgreens realizes will still be spent on lobbying efforts to lessen the tax rate on the US operations that they still have to pay.

Who ranked these hospitals? I do not agree with that. I know Christ hospital is a trauma center, butRead More I do not agree that it is #3 in the Chicago area. I know too many friends that went into Christ for a health problem, stayed at Christ for a week or so for tests, and then were released and were told that they are as healthy as a bull and within a week or so they were back at Christ for the same problems and it was too late and they died. Problem should have been found the first time they went in. Palos Hospital and Little Company of Mary are better than Christ. This is just my opinion.
Judie July 18, 2014 at 10:31 am
I agree . Palos and Little Company of Mary hospital are a lot better then Christ hospital.
