A complex and burdensome tax code holds back our economy and job growth.
Americans pay far too much in taxes. It is outrageous that federal, state, and local governments take as much as 40 percent of what Americans earn in a year. There are only two ways to fund government spending—through taxes, or through borrowing, which just puts a greater tax burden on future generations. Keeping taxes low leaves money in the private sector that can grow the economy which also produces more tax revenue.
Government needs to tax less and spend less. Americans work hard for their money and they know how to spend it better than politicians in Washington. Uncle Sam should not be taking so much of it away.
