President Barack Obama says he's renewing his administration's commitment to a simpler tax code.

The president on Wednesday defined such a code as one that rewards work and the pursuit of the American dream.

Mr. Obama is seizing the opportunity on tax-filing day to promote his push for lower taxes for working people. He said that for too long taxes have been used as a wedge to scare people into supporting bad policies for working people. The president said his administration is starting to change that.

The president said the tax code as currently written is too far complicated for most Americans to understand -- but just complicated enough to suit people who try to benefit unjustly from it.
