TALKING POINTS ON TAX REFORM

  • The U.S. tax code is complicated and unwieldy. It is a drain on our economy.
  • Americans spend 6 billion hours and $400 billion every year preparing their tax returns because the tax code is so complicated. That’s wasted time and money.
  • Our current tax system slows economic growth, and reduces opportunities and wages for all Americans.
  • Tax reform is long overdue.
  • Americans want a tax code that is simpler, flatter, and fairer.
  • 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 the nation forward.
