Congress needs to take axes to taxes

Congress needs to take axes to taxes
Some conservatives are calling on Congress to cancel their August recess in order to make progress on top priorities, including fundamental tax reform.

We need economic growth. Currently our complex, high-rate tax code with exceptions and carve-outs for this company or that industry holds us back from vital economic growth of 3 percent or more. For families and small businesses, compliance is not only complicated but often costly, both in terms of dollars and hours spent. The 74,000-page tax code makes it difficult to know how you'll be taxed from year to year.

All across the country, people are fed up with the bloated bureaucracy of the IRS. The time has come to use our voices to get fundamental tax reform.

Over the next few months, thousands of grassroots activists will join FreedomWorks and the Job Creators Network at more than a dozen events across the country to show their support for getting the sprawling tax code off their backs. They will hear from expert speakers, including Stephen Moore, one of President Trump's campaign advisers on economics.

For those who can't make it, however, there is still a way to join the nationwide push for real, substantive reform: call or write to members of Congress and tell them to scrap the complex, crony tax code and build a simple tax code that's easy to understand and follow.
