Issue Position: Economy & Tax Reform

For too long the American people have been asked to comply with an incomprehensible, loophole riddled, lobbyist friendly income tax code that makes it far too easy for innocent taxpayers to find themselves left to the mercy of a punitive Internal Revenue Service.

By adopting the FairTax, we can turn the tables and empower taxpayers to control how much of their money they are willing to send to Washington--by their spending habits--while also eliminating the need for the IRS. Switching to the FairTax would stimulate our economy by promoting saving and by immediately lowering the embedded costs of all goods and services.

The FairTax is good for the economy, and advances my goal of limiting the size and scope of government's reach into people's lives. I am proud to co-sponsor this legislation, and I commend Rep. Linder for leading the effort to pass this vital initiative.
