We now live in a global economy and the United States is one of the few nations that does not have a globally competitive system of taxation. The few goods America still exports are taxed by almost all of the foreign nations we export to. American companies are paying for health care in countries like Germany -- making them more competitive than the U.S. in the global markets.
