While in Washington, Todd is a strong advocate for fiscal responsibility and knows he is there to make tough and difficult choices. Congressman Rokita understands the threat to our children and grandchildren if the leaders of our country don’t display the courage and fortitude to make the right decisions for America.
Congressman Rokita often talks about the fact that the taxpayers who will bear the burden of the current reckless spending are not yet born–certainly not a legacy we should pass to the next generation. Todd knows that the time has come when America must get its “house in order” financially, and I am confident that he will do his part to keep us from going off the “financial cliff.”

Federal tax code is in need of repair
Our federal tax code is broken. There are more than two changes to it every congressional day for 20 years. It is so complicated that many IRS employees can’t explain it accurately. It is 72,000 pages long. A tax code that has fostered an industry, tax lobbyists, who outnumber DC elected officials 32 to 1. The government picks winners and losers. We’ve become so smart but we’ve lost common sense.
A bill in Congress, HR25, remedies the above. The FairTax replaces taxes on income with a tax on consumption. It’s fair. You decide how much in taxes you pay. It’s simple. No forms to fill out and no records to keep. Politicians can’t adjust provisions of it to give advantages to special interest groups or supporters. All citizens are granted a prebate to cover the tax on basic goods and services. Without taxes on income and employment, businesses thrive as their costs go down. Without the burden of our current tax system our manufactured goods become competitive worldwide. Good paying jobs return. The economy is saved without spending $1 on stimulus. Call your Congressmen today and ask for his support for the bill.
