Solutions for A Fairer, Simpler Tax System

The current tax system, created in 1913, is too burdensome, far too complicated, miserably outdated, punishes success, rewards failure and limits America's potential for prosperity. Our corporate tax rate is one of the highest in the world. Individual marginal tax rates are growing at an alarming rate. Our tax code is used to reward and punish personal behavior. The cost of compliance is growing out of control. The answer isn't higher taxes or more IRS agents...the answer is less taxes not more. As the next Congressman from the 9th District, reforming our tax system and reducing the tax burden on all Americans would be my top priority. It must be reformed by eliminating the current tax structure, reducing the federal bureaucracy needed to enforce the existing tax code by abolishing the IRS as we know it and replacing the entire system with a fairer, flatter, simpler and easier to understand system that is pro-growth and pro-jobs.

As a member of the Ways and Means committee in the Georgia House, I am the most experienced candidate on tax policy in the race. I have always supported tax reform that focuses on simplification and fairness. I support the Fair Tax because America's prosperity would improve dramatically if we converted to a transparent and voluntary tax structure that doesn't penalize wealth accumulation. The ultimate goal should be to spread the burden equally with voluntary inputs and easy compliance. However, good tax policy can only be accomplished when coupled with good spending policy. Our tax system should not be used to feed the beast of growing government spending.
