Geithner: Obama seeks 28 percent corporate tax rate

By The Associated Press

— President Barack Obama says the current corporate tax system is outdated, unfair and inefficient. He is calling for an end to dozens of subsidies and loopholes that he says offer tax breaks to companies that move jobs and profits overseas.

Obama says the current system is "not right and it needs to change."

The Obama administration is proposing cutting corporate tax rates from 35 percent to 28 percent. That is still higher than the 25 percent rate sought by congressional Republicans.

Obama said in a statement Wednesday that his framework lowers the corporate tax rate and broadens the tax base and will increase competitiveness for companies across the U.S.

I'd be happy if some corporations had a positive tax rate at all. With some paying nothing, and others receiving millions in refunds in addition to their billions in profits, something is wrong.
