Coburn: Apple proof we need to eliminate loopholes

"Why should Apple pay at 10 percent and some other company that can't export their technology ... why are they paying 35 percent?" Coburn asked during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Coburn said he sent a letter to Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) saying they have "to take a look" at how Apple pays such a low rate.

The GOP senator said Congress should reform the tax code and "get rid of the loopholes."
