Bond, Farmer Speak On Outsourcing
By Bill Raack, KWMU
St. Louis, MO – At separate news events in St. Louis Monday, Republican incumbent Kit Bond and Democratic challenger Nancy Farmer accused each other of supporting the movement of jobs from the U.S. to other countries. Both denied the accusations but said they support closing tax loopholes.
"I mean it makes absolutely no sense for us to have a federal tax code that provides incentives for companies to send jobs offshore," Farmer said. "That's wrong."
Bond says that taxes on U.S. corporations are higher than those elsewhere.
"This is something that we ought to consider changing that, our taxes, so that all of our taxes would be lower to create more jobs," Bond said.
Libertarian Kevin Tull and Constitution Party candidate Don Griffin are also seeking Missouri's Senate seat.
