Jumpstart America: My tax reform plan, with a business perspectiveThe United States tax code has not been overhauled since 1986. The policies that may have worked for us almost 30 years ago just don't work the same today. In the ever increasing global economy in which we now live, the United States has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, leaving American companies wanting to do business elsewhere. Despite the false hope we hear from President Obama, labor participation is at its lowest rate since Jimmy Carter was president. We're in dire need of a real jumpstart to our economy. No more false hope, no more artificial stimulus, no more temporary band-aids. Click on the video to learn more about my tax reform proposal, Jumpstart America.
Up until last week our state experienced a drought so severe that water levels were reduced to historic lows while conservation efforts were set to all-time highs. Lakes and reservoirs were bone dry. Wildfires were a constant threat. In a cruel twist of fate, Texas is now recovering from the worst flooding in recent history. The last few weeks have been marked by death, destruction and disbelief. Although we are in a period of shock and mourning, I am certain the strong Texas spirit of resolve will prove more powerful than Mother Nature’s fury. We are going to take care of each other, look out for our neighbors and together, push forward.
