Today, many of us will file our taxes and hand over our hard earned money to the federal government. America is $18 trillion dollars in debt – and climbing — not because we are taxed too little, but because Washington spends too much. And, despite that spending, the federal government still borrows $1 trillion every year. While President Obama continues to propose never-balancing budgets with higher taxes and more regulations, I’ll keep pushing to replace the current tax code – which is far too costly and complex – with a simpler, fairer, and flatter one. Families and small businesses already have enough on their plate without having to worry about an overly burdensome and a costly federal tax system that continues to take more from them.
