1.Lower the corporate income tax rate from 35% to 15%

2.Allow repatriation of corporate profits held offshore at a one-time tax rate of 10%.

3.Eliminate most business tax credits and “special interest” tax outlays, except for the R&D credit.

4.Entitle manufacturers to expense capital investment and lose the deductibility of corporate interest expense.

5.Provide tax benefits for corporations offering on-site childcare and pay part of employees’ child-care costs.
