Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) & Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Tax Day Tele Townhall With Tea Party Patriots – April 15, 2015
On April 15, Tea Party Patriots was honored to have two tax-fighting conservatives on our Tax Day Tele Townhall: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Except for President Obama, no one looks forward to Tax Day. Shamefully, the tax code has grown into a 70,000+ page monster, the IRS has been used as a weapon against Americans for their political and religious beliefs, and politicians use it to hide favoritism for special interest groups in the form of tax credits. On our tele townhall, both Senator Lee and Rep. Jordan described in detail why we must simplify our tax code and find a new way.
Rep. Jordan described the latest investigations into Lois Lerner’s abuse of power at the IRS. And Senator Lee described how the “tax code is so complex no one understands it and a lot of it is written by unelected bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people.” Both support a balanced budget amendment and common sense reforms.
