Boeing employees work on a plane engine at the company's factory in Everett, Wash. The Obama administration's corporate tax cut proposal would offer even deeper cuts for U.S. manufacturers like Boeing.
President Obama's plan to overhaul the nation's corporate tax system would sharply cut the taxes that U.S. companies pay. But it would also eliminate many of the loopholes that help them pare down what they owe.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the proposal unveiled Wednesday should appeal to both Democrats and Republicans, by doing what both sides "say is important to do ... which is lower the rate, broaden the base [and] eliminate the underbrush of unnecessary subsidies and loopholes and special provisions that complicate the tax code."

George Harrison wasn't the flashiest, craftiest guitarist of his day, just the one everyone loved. His sound always served the songs, just enough to make them better, but never enough to eclipse the writing of Lennon or McCartney or even his own tunes.

As expected, Wednesday's Republican presidential debate began with sharp jabs between the candidates. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who is coming off a three-state sweep, was the recipient of plenty of attacks.
For the first time, Santorum found himself at center stage, but he was caught in the middle of attacks from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
It felt like Santorum was on the defensive all night.
Perhaps one of the most memorable moments of the debate came when Paul called Santorum a "fake."

The Obama administration's recent decree — that, under Obamacare, Americans would no longer be free to offer or to choose new health plans that don't include complimentary coverage of birth control, morning-after pills and the abortion drug ella — would likely lead a great many people to switch to much costlier birth control, according to a new piece published by Kaiser Health News.
