Wendy Long on Tax Reform
"You know where I stand on this: I just think that we can't ever put those on the table," Long said. "Your willingness to put them on the table sounds to me sort of like the policies of Barack Obama and Kirsten Gillibrand."
Turner, noting that the White House and the Senate were held by Democrats, struck a tone of practicality and said "we're going to have to talk it out."
A: Well, first of all I would not have the arrogance to say that I as a public official am going to be the one who is going to create the jobs. I think that is a preposterous position. I think we have to be modest enough to realize that what we have to do is get out of the way and create a level playing field and favorable business climate for the people who really create the jobs to be able to do their jobs. I think what we need to do is lower tax rates, especially on business and also on individuals. Get rid of things that are oppressive to New Yorkers like the Alternative Minimum Tax. And just get off of people's backs. Dial back the oppressive regulations. So dial back the taxes and the regulation. Simplify the tax code. Make it more pro-growth. And reduce federal spending.
