Bob Brinker Says Cut Taxes To Help Economy

Today Bob Brinker gave his advice to president Obama and the congress about how to help the economy. His advice was
#1 Cut corporate tax rate from 35% to 25% so US corporations are paying the same taxes as most other industrialized nations.

#2 Allow same year expensing of business investment.

#3 Postpone plan to increase taxes in January.  He got pretty worked up over this:  "This is no time for a country that is dealing with a slow growth economy like this and a housing malaise..... to be raising taxes.... NO TIME TO BE RAISING TAXES."
Brinker says all three would be positive for the economy. 
FWIW, I agree but I would settle for #1 and #2 and let the president save face by increasing taxes on those making over $250,000 in exchange for cutting the corporate tax.  That would bring more jobs into the US in exchange for a higher tax on those who already have a good job.
