TALKING POINTS ON TAX REFORM

  • The U.S. tax code is a complicated mess and a drain on the economy.
  • Americans waste time and money preparing their taxes each year because our tax code is so complicated.
  • Tax reform in our country is long overdue.
  • Americans want a tax code that is flatter, with fewer brackets.
  • Americans want a tax code that is simpler, with less need to employ accountants and tax attorneys to navigate the code.
  • Our current tax system slows economic growth, and reduces opportunity and wages for all Americans.
  • President Trump campaigned on pro-growth tax reform, and the American people stand behind him on that goal.
  • Americans are ready for tax reform that moves our nation forward.
  • The proposed tax reform will make the United States a better place to invest and do business.
  • The House GOP’s tax bill addresses many of the most serious problems plaguing our tax code, including excessively high tax rates for corporations and incentives for businesses to move abroad.
  • The House GOP’s tax bill has much-needed simplifications, including eliminating the SALT (state and local tax) deductions for sales and income taxes.

Last week at Tea Party Patriots

Over the past several months, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund has been encouraging the Justice Department to carefully review any antitrust issues at play with the potential AT&T-Time Warner merger, as well as the potential threats to the first amendment posed by creating such a vast and powerful corporation. According to CNBC, the Justice Department has decided to consider an antitrust suit to block the proposed merger. This is an important development, and showcases the power of grassroots activists in shaping decisions within the federal government. Read Jenny Beth’s article in The Washington Times.

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund issued a statement on the tax relief plan released last week.
