Americans ready for tax reform, survey says



U.S. tax-policy reform is on the forefront of Americans minds this year, according to a recent survey – which is not surprising as real-unemployment numbers remain abysmal and Americans continue to tighten their belts.

CNBC has the story:

That’s the finding of a recent survey of 1,040 individuals conducted by WalletHub, a provider of free credit scores and reports.

Nearly 57 percent of participants said that “tax fairness” — what people should pay and how much — was more important than “whatever is best for the economy,” which garnered close to 23 percent…

“Consumers are spending more than they should over the past few years,” said Jill Gonzalez, an analyst at WalletHub. “They’re thinking more about their bottom line personally than the entire nation’s bottom line.”

Congress needs to get moving on reforming our tax code and creating a system at that is flatter, fairer and simpler. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots push for common-sense tax reforms!
