Issue Position: Taxes
I strongly believe that Americans know how to spend their money better than politicians in Washington. Reducing tax rates helps unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of America. History has shown us time and time again that cutting taxes creates new, higher-paying jobs while increasing the overall tax revenue of the federal government. As your U.S. Senator, I will continue working to limit wasteful Washington spending in order to keep your taxes low.
I supported the historic tax cuts that lowered taxes for every taxpayer in America. Following those tax cuts, our country experienced 52 months of uninterrupted job growth - the longest in the our history. Many of these tax cuts could be reversed in the coming years, and I am working to make sure they are made permanent. In addition to these efforts, I support the permanent repeal of the death tax, so that Mississippi small business owners and farmers do not have to sell the family business to write a check to Washington.
