Congressman John L. Mica was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1992 to represent Florida’s 7th Congressional District which includes Orange, Seminole and Volusia Counties. He currently serves as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Transportation and Public Assets in the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
His campaign website states:
"I support efforts to spur business activity and keep more jobs here at home by reducing manufacturing and corporate income taxes. The United States has one of the highest corporate income tax rates, especially when compared to many of our primary economic competitors, such as Britain, France and Germany. Higher taxes on the returns of capital inhibit the competitiveness of U.S.-based companies. With high taxes, many companies unfortunately cut costs and relocate abroad, taking with them good-paying jobs. Instead of punishing businesses for attempting to make a profit, I believe we need to reduce their incentive to sacrifice jobs by lowering taxes on those who employ Americans."
