Jenny Beth’s Journal: The GOP’s tax reform proposal is just what America needs

President Trump and Republicans in Congress released a tax reform framework that experts say will simplify the system, lower Americans’ taxes and generate significant economic growth. How could one proposal accomplish so many important things? Jenny Beth explains in her column for the Hill: On the corporate side, it proposes to slash the rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, which would, overnight, make the U.S. a more attractive place for business investment from both home and abroad.

Small business owners across the country are struggling and many feel that struggle is due to our high tax rates and our outdated and needlessly complex tax code. Many small businesses pay a federal marginal tax rate of 40 percent, which places small business at a drastic disadvantage compared to foreign competitors. As a result, small businesses cannot expand or hire new employees, let alone afford their current employees. Former NFL great and small business owner Fran Tarkenton shares his experiences: The current small business tax burden is far outside the international norm. Small businesses, the vast majority of which pay tax at the individual ...

Tax reform: A winning ticket for the American People

Congress is under a major time crunch to introduce a tax reform package before 2018 – that is, if they want to put a major legislative victory under their belts by the end of this year.

A tax reform plan that would provide a simpler, flatter, and fairer system would not only increase economic opportunity but it would create higher-paying jobs.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), ...
