Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul has a simple response to those who say his tax proposal will leave the government under-funded.
“Precisely! That’s my goal,” Paul said in an interview with Glenn Beck that aired Monday. “I want the government to be smaller. … And I want the rates to be so low that people will be beating on the door, wanting to come to America to create a business in America.”
Paul said that under the current system, business owners and entrepreneurs are “running away from us because of a 70,000 page tax code that is chasing businesses and chasing jobs overseas.”
“Let’s make this the friendliest place in the world to have a business,” Paul proposed. “We get rid of the entire tax code, all 70,000 pages. We get rid of the IRS, and all you have is one return that you multiply by 14.5 percent.”
