Meadows: 25% corporate tax rate non-starter for 'most' of Freedom Caucus

The key quote from House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows on Morning Joe: "In terms of lines in the sand, we've got to be very, very aggressive in our corporate rates. So if we're looking at a corporate rate of 25%, that's a non-starter for most of us."

Context from Axios' Jonathan Swan:

More from Swan: Most tax veterans believe they'll be lucky to get to 25%. There are not enough revenue sources to get anywhere near the Freedom Caucus' desired 16% rate. The current rate is 34-35%.
