      The current tax code is in need of a complete overhaul.  According to the National Taxpayer Advocate at the IRS, Americans collectively spend more than 6 billion hours and approximately $168 billion each year to file their returns.  Most Americans agree that the tax code needs a comprehensive reform, opposed to the 4,400 rule changes over the last 10 years. 
      As a Certified Public Accountant, I can attest that our tax code is broken.  It is too complex, contains too many loopholes, and serves as a barrier to job growth.  The current tax law hurts Ohioans and hinders the growth of small businesses and causes slower job growth.  
      At a time when our labor force participation rate is the lowest it has been in decades, we should be doing everything we can to advance solutions that will grow our stagnant economy and allow hardworking Americans to bring home larger paychecks.  We currently have the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world, which has led to more jobs overseas and fewer here at home.  We need to reduce the corporate tax rate, which will lead to the creation of more jobs and increased global competitiveness. 

-The Stop IRS act that I introduced and that passed in the House would give the head of the IRS the ability to fire employees who take part in political targeting.
