The article probes into the plan of creating a corporate-tax reform as part of the competitiveness agenda of U.S. President Barack Obama in 2011. Such initiative could allegedly boost support from the business group, as well as create good working relationship between the House Republicans and the Democrats. It is suggested that policymakers should avoid making tax preferences in favor of a particular industry. Multinational corporations allegedly support such initiative since they believe that tax rates should be reduced in order to compete globally.
