CompeteUSA YouTube Contest Third Prize Winner!
October 29, 2008
The third prize of $500 was given to Lori Harfenist of Brooklyn, NY, a host of “The Resident” for TV and for the Web, and content producer for stations including NBC, Turner Broadcasting, CNN, FOXNews, and DIRECTV. Lori created a video called “Taxes, Schmaxes.”
The CompeteUSA campaign comes on the heels of data showing that America has the second-highest corporate income tax rate in the industrialized world, and that the American worker shoulders a disproportionate amount of the corporate tax. As a result of the America standing still while nine key trading partners cut their corporate tax rates last year, our corporate tax rate is now 50% higher than the OECD average.
