Bradley Byrne on Tax Reform

 

 


Fight for a simpler and fairer tax code

Government regulations continue to bypass Constitutional limits on federal authority and strangle state and local economies. I will work tirelessly to end the corruption and cronyism that frustrates efforts at real reform and cost-cutting--just like I did at the state level with the two-year college system. I will fight for a simpler and fairer tax code that would virtually eliminate the need for the corrupt IRS.

Taxpayer Protection Pledge: no new taxes.

Byrne signed Americans for Tax Reform "Taxpayer Protection Pledge"

Politicians often run for office saying they won't raise taxes, but then quickly turn their backs on the taxpayer. The idea of the Pledge is simple enough: Make them put their no-new-taxes rhetoric in writing.

In the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, candidates and incumbents solemnly bind themselves to oppose any and all tax increases. While ATR has the role of promoting and monitoring the Pledge, the Taxpayer Protection Pledge is actually made to a candidate's constituents, who are entitled to know where candidates stand before sending them to the capitol. Since the Pledge is a prerequisite for many voters, it is considered binding as long as an individual holds the office for which he or she signed the Pledge.

Since its rollout with the endorsement of President Reagan in 1986, the pledge has become de rigeur for Republicans seeking office, and is a necessity for Democrats running in Republican districts.
