Viewpoint: Time to fix the broken tax code
By Jackie Walorski
We’ve all heard the reasons why we need tax reform: Our tax code hasn’t been updated in 31 years. It’s complicated, antiquated, and unfair. It’s holding our economy back.
But you don’t have to read all 70,000-plus pages of the tax code to know it’s hurting American workers and families.
Hoosiers know this system is broken. You send too much of your hard-earned money to Washington and spend too much time figuring out your taxes. The tax code favors special interests, not hardworking Hoosiers like you.
It’s time to change all that.
When I joined the Ways and Means Committee, I set out to give Hoosiers a voice in this once-in-a-generation opportunity to fix our broken tax code. We worked with President Trump to come up with a plan that puts families, small businesses, manufacturers, and farmers first.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will finally deliver the fair and simple tax code you deserve — one that cuts taxes for middle-class families and once again makes America the best place in the world to start and grow a business.
This bill will give workers and businesses a better chance to succeed. It will simplify the tax code by eliminating special-interest loopholes. And it will let you keep more of the money you earn.
