JOPLIN, MO---Missouri Congressman Billy Long says the main focus in Washington is to help people get jobs. And by doing that, Long says the tax structure needs to change for corporations so they can do better business in this country. He says the problem now is these businesses are leaving the country to avoid taxes in the United States. Long says there are 50 to 60 bills, job specific waiting to be passed by congress.

Long says, "Canada used to have one of the highest corporate tax rates there was, they completely changed that, now people are going to Canada for the lower corporate taxes and that's what we need to do here so we need to change the tax structure in this country."
Long says he's excited to get back to Washington to help the new congress take these bills over to the president and hopefully get things accomplished.
