    UPS effective tax rate

    If I recall correctly, during the earnings call management mentioned that the projected UPS effective tax rate for Q1 would be 35%. A report today mentioned that many large U.S. corporations pay very little in federal income tax over the last 5 years and many have paid zero at least once during that span. This is not a small sampling as it includes 288 of the largest corporations in America. So, it seems to me that the GOP plan that is being bantered about that might lead to a 25% tax rate for U.S. corporations would benefit us while hurting other companies who seem able to write off untold amounts of expenses. Thoughts?
