At one time, American workers kept 100% of their paychecks. But in 1913 the US Congress amended the Constitution in order to bypass the original intent of the Founding Fathers and levy a direct tax on American citizens.
As Senator, I will support the following initiatives. This list is not comprehensive, as there are many other tax cutting/elimination measures I support, like ending the death tax.
- End automatic federal tax withholding; have taxpayers write a check to the federal government every pay period. This will show all taxpayers how much we are paying for government.
- Support Fair Tax. Fair Tax eliminates the 16th Amendment, and replaces the personal federal income tax with a sales tax.
- Eliminate the Federal Income Tax outright and replace it with nothing. This action would give every American a 7-10% pay raise across the board and force massive cuts to federal government spending.
- Call for “Tax Freedom Day” holiday; This is the day taxpayers stop paying federal, state and local taxes. The average taxpayer paid all of his/her income earned from January 1 through April 18, 2017 to the federal, state and local government–this represents more than housing, food and clothing combined.
