Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) released the following statement regarding Tax Day.
“There is no better example of Washington’s inefficiency and ineffectiveness than our tax code. Today, as Americans across the country finish filing their taxes, they come face to face with a tax code that is too complicated, takes too much time to comply with and costs too much.
“It’s time to stand up and say ‘enough is enough.’ Tax reform will make the tax code simpler and fairer so our economy gets stronger, more jobs are created and hardworking Americans see bigger paychecks. We’ve already lost a decade due to how weak the economy is, and before we lose a generation, it’s time for real, meaningful tax reform to get this economy back on track.
“Earlier this year I released a blueprint for tax reform that does just that. My plan makes the tax code more effective and efficient by getting rid of special interest handouts to lower tax rates for individuals, families and businesses. Based upon non-partisan analysis, my tax reform plan can put an extra $1,300 a year in the pockets of middle class families.
“That’s the tax code Americans need – and deserve.”
