Let Freedom Ring Must Reads
Carly Fiorina, Republican Presidential Candidate on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace November 29, 2015 (excerpts)
We need to do some very specific things [including] radically simplifying the tax code.
I think fundamentally what we ought to do is have the government to take away less money so that it has to give less money back. A 73,000-page tax code is so complicated. This is how the government maintains power. It’s giving all these credits and deductions back, because it takes too much away. Of course, it’s true, if you’re late, you have to pay interest, but if the government is late, they never pay interest.
The tax code, the complexity of government favors the big, the powerful, the wealthy, the well-connected. It’s called crony capitalism. Republicans have engaged in it as well as Democrats.
If you level the playing field by simplifying, then you help the small all powerless and the middle class.
