Top 10 Reasons NOT to Vote for Harry Mitchell this Election – #7

Here is the latest press release from the David Schweikert campaign.

Reason # 7 – Taxation

Reducing the burden that taxes place on you and your family will be one of my top priorities in Congress.  I believe that you and your family know better than the government how to spend your money.  As a conservative, let me be clear.  Cutting taxes is fundamental!  We have seen first hand time and again how broad based tax cuts help grow our economy and provide new jobs.

Our tax system is upside down.  It rewards spending and punishes saving.  In Congress, I will work to make all existing tax cuts permanent.  I will push to reduce capital gains taxes so that people are encouraged to save and invest.  I will work to eliminate the incredibly unfair alternative minimum tax that is hitting far too many middle class families in our district. In addition, I will vote to eliminate the death tax in order to save small family businesses, farms and ranches.

The optimal tax system would be one with a very low rate and broad based –  one in which the government doesn’t pick winners and losers by providing  all kinds of loopholes and gimmicks, as the current system does. A flat tax or a national consumption tax that replaces the current income tax could be viable proposal. While a transition to a different form of taxation will require careful study and thought, it is absolutely unbelievable that the average taxpayer works nearly half a year just to pay off their tax debt to various forms of government.

Unlike some politicians, I am proud to say that I am a firm believer in the virtue of reducing taxes.  As your next Congressman, you can count on me to be a committed advocate for lower taxes.
