The issue of Tax Reform is an ongoing debate in Congress. I believe that cutting taxes is the best way to jump-start the economy.
I believe that Americans are taxed too much and our tax system is too complicated. It is far too easy to abuse the current system and reforms are badly needed. We must eliminate tax loopholes and lower overall tax rates for hard-working Americans. For this reason, I am a cosponsor of H.R. 25, the Fair Tax Act of 2011. This legislation would end the federal income tax, abolish the IRS, and implement a consumption based tax structure. Ending the IRS alone could save the federal government billions of dollars every year.
Additionally, I am a cosponsor of H.R. 937, Representative Tim Scott’s Rising Tides Act of 2011, which would reduce the corporate income tax to 23%. Taxation is an enemy of job creation and I will continue to support legislation that cuts taxes and allows the private sector to grow. Our country does not have a revenue problem; we have an increasing spending problem that we must stop now.

I look forward to your feedback.
