Last week, I held the second annual Economic Summit at UVU to discuss how the government can best foster an environment that helps businesses grow and hire new workers.
The theme of this year’s event was “The Right Way to Grow the Economy,” and some of the main discussion points were that a simple tax system with low tax rates helps American businesses of all sizes prosper, and over-regulation drives jobs overseas.
“I think there might be three things that almost everyone can agree upon; first, most everyone dislikes paying taxes; second, most everyone thinks the tax system is too complex and unfair; and finally, most everyone agrees that when it comes to taxes, Washington needs an attitude adjustment.
“What many do not realize and liberals refuse to acknowledge is that fully half of the income that would be taxed at higher rates under the president’s plan is income earned by small- and medium-sized businesses that report their taxes on individual tax returns.” -Senator Orrin Hatch
Have a great week.
