The following statement may be attributed to AT&T’s Chief Financial Officer John Stephens.

“If we want to spur greater investment and job creation in the United States by businesses of all sizes, we need to fix our broken tax code. It’s hard for American businesses to compete globally and create more jobs domestically when the U.S. tax rate is the highest of any developed country.  We fully support the President’s and Congress’ push to simplify and reform the U.S. tax system. We expect the reforms being discussed will stimulate investment, fuel economic growth and drive hiring – all of which will benefit the American worker.”
