Taxes

f t # e
 

I have heard from a number of folks in the 3rd District who are worried about tax increases and are interested in a new approach to government taxation in our country. First, please know that I oppose raising taxes. I firmly believe that the money in your pocket is your money, not the government’s, and you need to be able to keep as much of your hard-earned dollars as possible.

I believe that Congress must address the long-term economic issues facing our nation, which is why I favor fundamental tax reform. Our current tax system is inefficient, discourages savings and investment and hinders economic growth. 

I agree that the current tax code system is broken. That’s why I have worked aggressively to change our system by supporting tax policies that foster economic growth and tax simplification.  For example, I have signed on to H.R. 462, the Tax Code Termination Act, which would terminate the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
