Excerpt: Rep. Dave Camp (R., Mich.), the House Ways and Means chairman, outlined a business-friendly plan for overhauling the U.S. tax code for companies, including cutting corporate tax rates by 10 percentage points and ending the longstanding rule that seeks to tax American multinationals on their overseas earnings….
