Frank McEnulty on Tax Reform

New American Independent Party nominee for President


Move towards a simpler taxation structure

The country needs to move towards a simpler, taxation structure to not only make it easier for people to pay their taxes, but also to make it easier to determine when people aren't paying their fair share. At this time, I also do not believe it is necessary to lower or increase taxes. I do not believe in increasing taxes for two reasons: First, increased taxes are often counterproductive to overall revenue; and second, increased taxes only lead to increased government spending.

Increased taxes often counterproductive to overall revenue

Q: Do you support the permanent repeal of the federal estate tax?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support requiring the federal budget to be balanced each year?

A: Yes. I do not believe in increasing taxes for two reasons: First, in the long run, increased taxes are often counterproductive to overall revenue. Second, increased taxes only lead to increased government spending and I believe the Federal Government already has plenty of our money to spend.
