Entrepreneurs need lower taxes, fewer regulations
Entrepreneurs create more jobs when they are operating in a business-friendly environment. Our current corporate tax rate is too high and we are losing businesses to other countries with lower rates.
Nothing will provide more economic relief and opportunity for people of all backgrounds than tax relief and regulatory reform for both individuals and businesses.

Make loans as easy for small business as for large ones
Some compelling facts about small businesses in the United States:
55% of Americans work for small businesses
50% of small businesses don't survive more than 5 years. Tax laws make it difficult for many small businesses to survive. While tax
breaks and bail-outs have kept many large businesses afloat, small businesses rarely ever receive such help as they work to establish themselves. We can do better.
80% of small businesses are turned down for small business loans from banks.
Provide tax incentives and reduce required social security taxes to small businesses until they stabilize.
Improve upon the Dodd-Frank legislation so that small businesses with sound plans can
more easily get the loans they need to be successful. As one who has worked through the bank loan process, it is clear that there are too many roadblocks that likely prevent many small businesses from succeeding.

Lower America's corporate tax rate
I propose a simpler tax code, lower tax rates, and eliminating tax loopholes that pick winners and losers. Americans should be rewarded for their hard work, particularly during these tough economic times.
Higher taxes slow economic growth, discourage personal savings, and make us less competitive in the global market.
I favor lowering taxes for the purposes of encouraging greater innovation, business productivity, job creation, and international competitiveness.
Work to reduce payroll tax rates to pre-2013 levels
Lower America's corporate tax rate, which is currently the highest in the world, so that we can encourage companies to keep jobs in America
