State of North Carolina secondary Archives: on Tax Reform


Mark Walker: Replace broken tax code with flat tax and FairTax models

We must reduce the tax burden on working Americans. In 2008, President Obama stated that he would not raise taxes on the middle class. Yet, due to the increase in payroll taxes (as well as the new ObamaCare premiums, taxes and penalties) paychecks are shrinking while many personal exemptions and deductions appear to be dangerously close to extinction.

It is time for tax reform through a radical change in our current tax code. This administration has added thousands of pages to a tax code that is broken, misused and manipulated. The flat tax and fair tax models are much better models and could be implemented whereby all Americans share some responsibility. We will not dig ourselves out overnight, but we must start overhauling the current system now.
