Indiana 8th District Congressman Larry Bucshon says the federal government can take a few quick steps to increase U.S. exports. Bucshon made a stop at Toyota to show what he considers to be one U.S. export success story.
Toyota is exporting the Sienna Mini Van to South Korea. Bucshon says that was made possible after South Korea and the U.S. signed a free trade agreement last year. He also says there are other things the federal government can do to the "level the playing field" with other countries.
"The federal government can do that by making sure our tax code is consistent with competative markets," said Bucshon, "and right now our U.S. Corporate Tax Code has the highest corporate tax rate in the world making us non-competative."
Bucshon also says U.S. regulations have become too aggressive, which he says hurts American business.
