House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) wants Congress to pass legislation that would drop the corporate tax rate from the current 35 percent down to the teens.

The Hill has the scoop:

“I don’t want to nibble around the edges,” Meadows said Wednesday at an event hosted by Americans for Prosperity (AFP), a group backed by the GOP mega-donors Charles and David Koch.

“I think that something with a one in front of it, whether it’s 15 or 17 or 18 [percent], that’s where we need to be,” he added.

Republicans broadly agree about wanting to lower the corporate tax rate, which is currently 35 percent, but they don’t have consensus on what the new rate should be.

Republicans agree that the corporate tax rate should be lower than in already is; the challenge will be working toward a general consensus on what that rate will be.
