Mike Pompeo on Tax Reform

 


Taxpayer Protection Pledge: no new taxes.

Pompeo 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.

Supports eliminating the estate tax.

Pompeo supports the PVS survey question on the estate tax

Project Vote Smart infers candidate issue stances on key topics by summarizing public speeches and public statements. Candidates are given the opportunity to respond in detail; about 16% did so in the 2010 races.

Project Vote Smart summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: 'Budget, Spending, and Tax Issues: Do you support the elimination of the federal estate tax?'

Replace income tax & estate tax with 23% sales tax.

Pompeo co-sponsored Fair Tax Act of 2011

    Congress finds the Federal income tax--
  1. retards economic growth and has reduced the standard of living
  2. impedes the international competitiveness of US industry
  3. reduces savings and investment by taxing income multiple times
  4. slows the capital formation necessary for real wages to steadily increase
  5. lowers productivity
  6. imposes unacceptable and unnecessary administrative and compliance costs
  7. is unfair and inequitable
  8. unnecessarily intrudes upon the privacy and civil rights of US citizens
  9. impedes upward social mobility.
    Findings Relating to National Sales Tax- Congress finds further that a broad-based national sales tax on goods and services purchased for final consumption--
  1. is similar in many respects to the sales and use taxes in place in 45 of the 50 States
  2. will promote savings and investment
  3. will promote fairness
  4. will promote economic growth
  5. will raise the standard of living
  6. will increase investment
  7. will enhance productivity and international competitiveness
  8. will reduce administrative burdens on the American taxpayer
  9. will improve upward social mobility; and
  10. will respect the privacy interests and civil rights of taxpayers.
