Taxes

I believe that Congress must address the long-term economic issues facing our nation, which is why I favor comprehensive tax reform. Our current tax system is inefficient, discourages savings and investment, and hinders economic growth. I believe that tax reform should be focused on growth - a growth in American jobs, paychecks, and our nation's economy. In order to do so, we must achieve three priorities: ending special interest tax breaks, reducing taxes for all Americans, and lowering tax rates for American job creators of all sizes so they can invest more in expanding their businesses and hiring new workers. 

The House of Representatives are working on bold solutions. Right now, the current tax code runs approximately 76,000 pages. Our plan simplifies the code so that the majority of Americans will be able to file their taxes on a form the size of a postcard. 

At the end of the day, Americans need a tax code that works for the 21st Century. Reforming the tax code means that families, individuals, and small businesses will have more time to spend on growing the economy.
