More to the point - can US companies get it. If they could they'd not build plants (etc.) in the EU! So - guess what - the federal government does not offer those tax rates to EU Companies (either).

By now, you really get the point:
A contract made by an entity legally entitled to make its own decisions (like a sovereign nation) is responsible to uphold the contract. If they're not so obligated then there's no way for anyone to do any business, certainly not internationally, as there would be absolutely no trust.
