Key Vote "YES" DeMint Jobs Plan: Amendment #168

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “Yes” on Senator Jim DeMint’s Job’s Plan, Amendment #168.  This amendment is an alternative to H.R. 1 and would create nearly 18 million new jobs in ten years without the wasteful spending and debt that comprises the current stimulus plan recently passed by the House. The DeMint Jobs Plan provides for real, long term growth in addition to immediately relieving the tax burden for citizens nationwide.  The two step plan is simple, and transparent.

Sen. Brownback embraces a flat tax in his 2008 presidential bid

BY Matt Stearns

Remember the flat tax? The policy proposal gained traction among conservative politicians for a while in the 1990s, but it withered amid little real-world political support. Now it's back, as a fiscal policy cornerstone of Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback's campaign for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. It calls for earned income to be taxed at the same marginal rate, unlike the current system, which has different tax brackets for different incomes. Typically, proponents of a flat tax call for eliminating most deductions except for a sizable individual exemption.

On Tax Day, $125 Billion in Waste

BY Matt Schumsky

Another dreaded April 15th – Tax Day – is nearly upon us. Our annual tax ritual requires over 26 hours from the average person filing a standard 1040, and over 60 percent of Americans seek professional help. The reason: The U.S. tax code now exceeds 60,000 pages, and those pages often give conflicting advice. No wonder that in 1976, presidental candidate Jimmy Carter declared, “Our income tax system is a disgrace to the human race.”

Tax Code Is Recipe For Pitfalls, Cheating

BY Matt Kibbe

Saturday is April 15: national lawbreaker day. Everyone could be a criminal on tax day because of the sheer size and complexity of the federal tax code. At more than 9 million words and growing, the tax code is a leviathan of potholes, pitfalls and disasters waiting to happen.

Scrap the Tax Code

BY Matt Kibbe

April 15, national lawbreaker day, is around the corner. Everyone could be a criminal on tax day because of the sheer size and complexity of the federal tax code. At more than 9 million words and growing, the tax code is a leviathan of potholes, pitfalls, and disasters waiting to happen. Special interests have long fed at the tax code trough, getting clever exclusions and deductions added to the code while you and I break pencils worrying about if those late-night copies constitute a business expense or whether mileage can be deducted from our taxes. Who knows? Unless you like pouring over indecipherable tax forms, instruction booklets, and the attendant guide books published by the tax consulting industry, you will probably never know for sure if you've paid the right amount this year. You might just be a felon.

GOP Conservatives in U.S. House Offer Cuts to Help Balance Budget

BY Mary M. Shaffrey

In 1994, Republicans won control of Congress by touting their "Contract with America." Twelve-years later, conservative Republicans, angered by the growing budget deficit and increased pork-barrel spending, proposed massive budget cuts that they say will help balance the budget by 2011. "House conservatives believe we must return to our 1994 roots of fiscal discipline and reform," said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of more than 60 conservative members of the House who wield some influence within the party.
