creating a fair and balanced tax system

Our tax system is long in need of an overhaul. Changes are needed to make a more fair and efficient system for all Americans. We can reduce the burden on hard-working families and still fully-fund our necessary public investments -- in defense, education, infrastructure, and emergency services -- by simplifying the tax system while making it more progressive.

  • Simplify the income tax system by reducing the number of rates

  • Reduce taxes on working and middle class Americans. (This would include everyone making up to $500,000 a year.)

  • Make tax reform “revenue neutral” by increasing the tax rate on income over $1 million a year. (This income isn’t earned the way that other income is, and certainly shouldn’t be taxed the same way.)

  • Establish a corporate tax system that encourages the hiring of American workers
