In Sunday's Worcester Telegram and Gazette, I proposed a better way to stimulate long-term economic growth. The T&G liked my letter so much it named it "Letter of the Week."
Simplify tax code to boost economy
LETTER OF THE WEEK
U. S. Rep. James P. McGovern, D-Mass., said, “It’s their money and they need to decide how to spend it,” in response to the rebate checks currently being issued by Congress (“Found money,” Telegram & Gazette, June 26).
However, Mr. McGovern and his colleagues could better help the economy now and in the future by simplifying the tax code.
Americans have to waste millions of dollars and hours each year trying to figure out how to pay their high taxes.
Simplification of the tax code would leave more hard-earned tax dollars in taxpayers’ pockets, leading to higher economic growth and negating the necessity of these election-year economic stimulus packages.
