NTU’S Pete Sepp Joins Arizona Senator Jeff Flake for Tax Reform Town Hall
WASHINGTON, D.C., (November 29, 2017) — Recently, National Taxpayers Union (NTU) President Pete Sepp joined Arizona Senator Jeff Flake for an employee town hall on tax reform at Geco, an aerospace technology company located in Mesa, Arizona.
“It was an honor to join Senator Flake in his home state for this important discussion on the need to overhaul our burdensome tax code,” said Pete Sepp, president of NTU. “With the House and now the Senate moving tax reform legislation, we are on the verge of delivering a tax system to the American people that will unleash the nation’s full economic potential and deliver relief for middle-class families. Going forward, it is vital Congress work toward a final bill that will reduce rates, close loopholes and simplify laws while treating all sectors of our economy equally; lawmakers should not levy punitive taxes on any targeted industries. Businesses of all sizes will then be empowered to expand, invest more capital and hire more employees. Moreover, taxpayers will not be forced to waste nearly 7 billion hours and cough up more than $262 billion just complying with a tax code that no longer works. America’s tax system has stood still for far too long, driving businesses overseas and causing us to fall farther behind our global competitors. As the legislative process gathers momentum, I look forward to working with Senator Flake and others in Congress to get a tax reform package across the finish line.”
NTU is a non-partisan citizen group with thousands of supporters across the country and in Arizona.
