President Obama walked into enemy territory Monday to address the U.S. Chamber of Commerce – an attempt to mend fences with the nation’s business community.
During his midday address, Obama pledged to lower the corporate tax rate. And to eliminate unnecessary government regulations.
The president also urged the chamber members to help create jobs in the United States.
“The ones that are gone very often tend to stay gone,” Talk Radio News Service White House correspondent Victoria Jones said in an interview with Gary Baumgaten on News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network.
“But … he encouraged them to start creating jobs here in the U.S. One of the incentives,” she said, “is that he wants to lower the corporate tax rate.”
Jones says the president also wants to simplify the tax code, hoping that will also, serve as incentive for American businesses to invest in the U.S. workforce
