Smart Voter


By Richard Lake, CPA

Candidate for United States Representative; District 20; Republican Party

This information is provided by the candidate
We need to stop the class warfare as a means to seek to raise taxes on those who work hard to achieve the American dream.
1.Washington is constantly seeking new ways to part citizens from their money. The most recent proposals, deny people who give to charities a deduction on their taxes and to take away the mortgage interest deduction. Those who give allow communities to help take care of their own who are in crisis. Let neighbor help neighbor. Let us support our churches. Let us make choices on which we deem worthy of receiving our gifts. If you take away the mortgage interest deduction you will throw a struggling home market into deeper stress.

2.Tax simplification. Example: let everyone put the same amount into retirement accounts and simplify the reporting.
