Taxes take money away from citizens and give those resources to the government. Our goal should be to keep tax rates low so that people can better support themselves and their families, and grow their businesses and the economy, which will create more opportunities for everyone. High taxes discourage investment, risk-taking, entrepreneurship, and hard work. By keeping corporate and individual taxes low, we can encourage individuals and business owners to spend or invest their money in ways that create opportunity and grow the economy. Allowing individuals to retain more of what they earn will improve wellbeing and increase prosperity for all.
