Tax Reform

I am in favor of the Fair Tax, which would bring lower, simpler rates across the board.  We can level the playing field for everyone to achieve the American Dream, and allowing hardworking taxpayers to take home more of their paychecks is a way to start.

While we work towards a fairer and simpler tax code, I will work to lower corporate and capital gains rates so American businesses can be confident and competitive again.
