"I was outraged when I read, on Twitter of all places, that the president wanted to ban transgender people from serving in the military. You know, and he knows, transgender people have fought and died for this country from our very beginning. They are serving in uniform with distinction right now, and the suggestion that transgender Americans are unfit to serve is insulting and wrong." -- Hillary Clinton, speech to Human Rights Campaign annual gala

Obama proposes lowering corporate tax rate to 28 percent

[snip] The plan would lower the nation's corporate tax rate to 28 percent. At the same time, Obama wants to boost overall revenue from corporate taxation by banning numerous deductions and loopholes that save companies tens of billions of dollars a year on their tax bills.
