ALEC in American Family News: More States Join the ‘Flat Tax Revolution’

Some states are doing what they can to push back against big government policies of Washington, but overall the country is still struggling with inflation.

Lee Schalk, ALEC Vice President of Policy, spoke with American Family News about how states are moving away from a progressive income tax structure in favor of a flat tax. 

When you talk about lowering taxes for Americans that are suffering under the policies of Washington, you’re allowing people to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks. And right now, every little bit goes a long way. There are some great examples of [states] doing what they can to push back against the big government policies of Washington, but it’s still a struggle for the country overall with these record inflation numbers.

In ALEC’s view, government spending is at the root of this problem, a reckless spending binge has been taking place ever since President Biden took office.

One would think that when Americans are suffering under crushing record inflation, you would not pursue higher taxes, but that’s exactly what Washington did with the Inflation Reduction Act.

It’s a frustrating time for our economy, and, of course, it’s bad news from a political standpoint, at least for the Biden administration and for Democrats.
