On last night’s CNN broadcast a Governor supporting the republicans """state that the major corporations were holding back $trillions of Dollars in investments to see if the republicans got in and gave them the tax breaks they wanted or they would take their trillions of dollars off shore,""

Does this mean they are also deliberately not investing, deliberately slowing down the economy until they get the tax breaks the republicans have promised --- if you don't vote republicans and give us tax break we will take our $trillions off shore """" the Mitt Romney philosophy""

Are corporations holding you up to ransom???????

Private companies have an obligation to their shareholders to make the best decisions for the company going forward.  There are examples on both the Republican and Democratic side of companies who have outsources or who have used tax havens over seas to protect their investors.  This is capitalism.  The real question is, why don't we make America a place where everyone wants to invest?  Having the highest corporate tax rate in the world makes it difficult for any company to want to keep business here.  Lower taxes and regulations for everyone will entice companies to make products here in the U.S. and spur economic growth.  Taking more money from companies and from wealthy individuals will not solve or debt problems and will only push these companies overseas even more.
