More on Tax Reform
“As families and businesses file their taxes today, we are reminded of the burden that our overly complex tax code places on American households. This year hardworking taxpayers have spent too many hours and dollars to comply with the over 74,000 pages of tax code. The need for common-sense tax reform couldn’t be clearer. By replacing our current tax code with a simpler, flatter, and more efficient one, we will strengthen our economy and allow Americans to keep more of what they earn so they can invest it in their future.”
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio fulfilled a commitment he made to his constituents by introducing his first House Joint Resolution, H.J.Res 27, which would amend the Constitution of the United States to prevent Congress from using its taxing authority in order to force someone to engage in commerce. Most notably, this amendment would prohibit the federal government from inflicting financial penalties on individuals who decline to purchase health care in the marketplace.
