Taxes & Federal Spending

Rep. Myrick believes taxes burden families, businesses, and economic growth. In our current economic climate, lower taxes mean more money in the wallets of Americans and more money for investments by small businesses.  There is no such thing as government money - it's your money, and Congress needs to stop spending it on wasteful programs.  

Rep. Myrick is a true fiscal conservative when it comes to spending.  Since coming to Congress in 1995, she has fought government spending by routinely voting against spending increases and by attempting to abolish government programs that are repetitive and unnecessary.  She believes Congress needs to take the lead in promoting fiscal discipline and eliminating wasteful government spending in order for the federal government to become smaller and more efficient. 
Rep. Myrick also believes that our nation is in need of significant tax reform that will boost our economy and create jobs. She supports a simplified tax code that not only eliminates loopholes but also reduces overall rates.
