TALKING POINTS ON TAX REFORM

  • The U.S. tax code is complicated and unwieldy. It is a drain on our 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.
  • Republicans have pledged to make our tax reform simpler by reducing the number of tax brackets — a definite step in the right direction!
  • The proposed tax reform will make the United States a better place to invest and do business, which will translate into a stronger economy and more jobs.
  • Americans are eager for tax relief, and the GOP is right to prioritize this issue.
