I support reform of the current tax system by implementing the Fair Tax or a Flat Tax -- or a combination. When the income tax was implemented in 1913, the tax code was only 400 pages. Today it has grown -- and is continuing to grow -- to more than 70,000 pages. The new system needs to be simple, flat, and fair. I also support permanently eliminating inheritance taxes -- family businesses should not have to be dismantled at death. Likewise, our tax laws should not discriminate against married couples, and they should encourage home ownership.
