I believe as Members of Congress, no matter what side of the aisle we are on, we must protect our constituents and ensure fairness in the tax system. We must also ensure that middle-class citizens are not left paying more than the wealthiest of Americans. In the past, I have and will continue to support efforts that bring about real change when necessary to ensure the integrity and fairness of our tax system. I support reform measures taken to make our tax code simpler and fairer, so that all Americans pay their share. However, changing our tax code, which consists of a complex maze of intricate rules and regulations, will take time and compromise. Please be assured, I will continue to work toward this end and please do not hesitate to get in touch with my office with any further concerns in the near future.
