Ryan: ‘We Have a Real Problem’ Which Is ‘One of the Worst Tax Systems’ in the World and ‘It’s Costing Us Jobs’
RYAN: "We have a real problem, which is we have one of the worst tax systems in the industrialized world. It's costing us jobs. It's costing us economic growth. We tax our businesses and our products a whole lot more than our foreign competitors tax theirs. We have got to radically simplify this tax code and make it easier and simpler for families. Our plan is so families can fill out their taxes on postcard instead of this really complicated system with really obnoxious IRS and we've got to get our taxes and our businesses down so they can compete and hire. We think this is one of the most important things we can do to create jobs and economic growth and get people back to work."
