(Washington, DC) -- GOP House Speaker John Boehner is praising a top Republican's blueprint for tax reform. Michigan Congressman Dave Camp says he aims to craft a tax code which is simpler and more fair. Camp, chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, said a streamlined tax code will help boost the economy. He joked that the current tax code is now ten times bigger than the Bible, "with none of the good news." Boehner said the federal tax system is broken and gets in the way of economic growth.
