Christopher Reed on Tax Reform

Republican challenger


Lower taxes means increased revenue, via the Laffer curve

A: President Bush's tax cuts are set to expire. Would you make them permanent?

A: Yes.

Q: Why?

A: Because withdrawing a tax cut is a tax increase and I am not for tax increases.

Q: What about the budget deficit?

A: I would say in alignment with the Laffer curve, lower taxes, increase revenue.

Q: Why have lower taxes?

A: Because of out of control spending in Congress.

Taking back the current tax cuts is bad for America

I believe that our current tax system actually punishes success and the Liberal plan to take back the current tax cuts is bad for Iowans and bad for America.

I believe that the down-trodden and less fortunate in our society need a leg-up, not a hand-out.

I believe that your taxes are too high and that you know what is better for your money than the Liberals in Washington.
