“The entire health care bill needs to be repealed, but while we wait for the U.S. Supreme Court to bring the case forward and rule on its constitutionality, this requirement must be repealed immediately,” said Simpson. “The Democrat health care bill contains expensive and burdensome regulations on small businesses that they cannot afford. We should repeal this excessive reporting provision immediately and continue to work on full repeal so we may focus on promoting measures that would encourage small businesses to grow and create jobs.”

“Over the last few years there have been several proposals to curtail the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) intrusion into the American homes. These include proposals to implement a flat tax or a national sales tax,” said Simpson. “I believe the most effective course of action is to sunset the current complex and unfair federal tax code and replace it with a simple and fair alternative.”

“All taxpaying Americans have benefited from marriage penalty relief, increased child tax credits, and a reduced tax burden on their income and their investments,” said Simpson. “Right now American families are struggling to make ends meet and small businesses are facing the possibility of laying off employees or closing their doors, and I simply don’t believe that a huge tax increase on families and job creators is the best way to get our economy growing again.”

“The estate tax hits farm families especially hard, and I have consistently supported efforts to permanently repeal or reduce the impact of this burdensome, unfair tax,” said Simpson. “Throughout their lives, people pay sales tax, property tax, and income tax on their assets. Paying Uncle Sam again should not be part of the grieving process.”
