5 of the best quotes from political leaders championing tax reform
Our convoluted tax code on both the state and federal levels needs a major overhaul that includes slashing the tax burden on everyday Americans and eliminating crony, big-business tax incentives that rarely ever apply to the small mom-and-pop shops. Here are five conservatives championing fairer, simpler tax codes in their backyards and on the federal level.
1. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
“We cannot rest on our laurels when it comes to our tax rates. You’ve long heard me say that South Carolina needs to reduce our tax burden every single year. Never has that been more important than now, with our citizens opening their paychecks this month and seeing that, low and behold, Washington’s tax hikes on the rich somehow got them too,” says Haley.
2. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal
“Higher taxes still do not create prosperity for all. And more government still does not grow jobs,” says Jindal.
3. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin
“Washington has got to across the board, lower taxes for small businesses so that our mom and pops can reinvest and hire people so that our businesses can thrive. They should support competition, support innovation, reward hard work,” says Palin.
4. Texas Governor Rick Perry
“I think you need to have a tax system that basically is flat, fair and simple. And that you can put on a postcard,” says Perry.
5. Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin
“We talked about modernizing and simplifying our tax code. Time will tell exactly the specifics of that and we’ll be rolling out a budget here in just a matter of less than two months. But we are going to modernize and simplify our tax code. We are going to get rid of the inventory tax in this state. We are going to get rid of the death tax in this state,” says Bevin.
It’s long past time to create a tax code that is simpler, flatter and fairer. Click here to help us push for tax reform!
