The federal government continues to spend money we don't have and issue regulations that reduce revenues and stunt job creation. This is a bad combination. Our federal tax code has grown to be too big and too complex. Instead of promoting the growth of U.S. jobs, wages, and the economy, our tax code is working against us. In 1960, 17 of the 20 largest global companies were headquarted in the United States. Now that the U.S. imposes the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, this number has dropped to six. I’m committed to cutting down on needless regulations, reducing wasteful spending, and simplifying our tax code in order to restore economic growth and the jobs that come along with a healthy economy.
