As a proud product of the private sector, and a past Chairman of the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce, I understand what it takes for businesses to be successful. Throughout my time in Congress, I have worked hard to foster an environment that allows for the free-enterprise system to thrive and prosper. This includes less government regulation, lower taxes, and allowing companies to make their own, market-based decisions.
I strongly believe that our tax system is broken. That is why I support and will continue to champion comprehensive tax reform, which will lower rates, reduce the number of tax credits and make our system more competitive for families and businesses. As your Member of Congress, I will continue to tirelessly push for a flatter, fairer tax code that benefits all Americans.
Fix the Tax Code to Help Job Creators
- Currently, the United States has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. High corporate taxes means less capital for companies to invest, which means less growth, which ultimately leads to a lagging economy and reduced job creation.
- Increase American competitiveness to spur investment and create more American jobs by streamlining the tax code and lowering the tax rate for businesses and individuals including small business owners to no more than 25 percent.
- Reform the tax code to allow American businesses to bring back their overseas profits without having to pay a tax penalty so they can invest in our economy and create American jobs.
My efforts to reform our tax code have led me to be the recipient of the "Spirit of Enterprise” Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the “Taxpayer Hero” award from Citizens Against Government Waste.
