Other than at the IRS, no job is ever created by raising taxes. The current patchwork of temporary policies for individuals, sectors, and areas of business creates uncertainty for Americans and stifles investment by our entrepreneurs and business owners. We need more efficient and effective programs that invest in a better future, not higher taxes. Let’s spend what we tax more wisely
The generations that follow us deserve a solid footing—not a country drowning in debt because of expansions of entitlement programs and mandates. The fact is, we cannot prosper if government continues to overspend. My mission is to stop wasteful government spending, bring measures that help create well-paying jobs and shrink our debt so we can build a healthy economy and secure the economic future of America’s children.
More on Tax Reform
"This tax reform is so much more than just tax cuts. This is designed to create economic growth. As a society, we have trillions and trillions of unfunded liabilities and promises we have made to our seniors and others, and we do not have the money. The only way we can get close to it is we must grow economically and that means American businesses have to stop leaving our country and moving their headquarters overseas. This demonstrates that by fixing the problems in our tax code. Businesses from around the world are coming back home. It's a great message."
