Former NFL quarterback Fran Tarkenton says he and other members of the nonpartisan Job Creators Alliance were glad to hear President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney agree on something in their debate — that U.S. corporate tax rates need to be more competitive with the rest of the world.
"JCA and the business leaders it represents were glad to hear that both President Obama and Governor Romney agreed that the U.S. corporate tax rate — which is the highest in the world — is too high and needs to be reduced if America's businesses are to be competitive in the global marketplace," the NFL hall of famer said in an alliance press release.
But Tarkenton seemed to side more with Romney's overall approach to righting the nation's economy, agreeing with the Republican presidential nominee that Obamacare should be repealed as part of any economic plan.
"Reducing the debt, repealing Obamacare, ending America's reliance on foreign energy sources, reforming the tax code and cutting the tax rates on individuals and businesses is the right prescription for America's ailing economy," he said. "The free market is the engine that drives job creation in this country, not the federal government.
"The bottom line is that unleashing America's entrepreneurs, innovators, and small businesses will put millions of Americans back to work and make America more competitive in the global economy," he added.
