Taxes should raise the revenue to fund necessary government operations in ways that cause the least possible economic damage. We need to reform our existing tax code and drop the current administrations plans to raise taxes on the job creators. For good reason, no school of economic thought advocates raising taxes during a recession or in its immediate aftermath. Raising taxes now would be reckless and irresponsible.
I will also support the movement to phase out the Personal Income Tax in Louisiana so that Louisiana can better compete with Texas and Florida for high-paying jobs. I support the Tea Party movement.
