GOP candidate who defeated Lugar wants to abolish the IRS and audit the fedSubmitted by jay0718 on Wed, 05/09/2012 - 15:30
Richard Mourdock for U.S. Senate
Reducing Taxes and Eliminating the IRS
Richard supports the elimination of the IRS and moving our system of taxation away from a system that taxes income and productivity to a system that taxes consumption. The federal tax code has become too complicated with too many loopholes and is not a fair and efficient system of raising revenue. Even more important, is that any new tax system be combined with cuts in spending and a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution that also places a cap on future spending as a percentage of GDP. Taking these steps is the key to restoring permanent economic growth.
Accountability for the Federal Reserve and Promoting Sound Monetary Policy
Richard supports efforts to require an audit of the Federal Reserve as a means of ensuring accountability. Richard also believes that the Federal Reserve should narrowly focus its efforts on promoting stability and strengthening the dollar rather than attempting to artificially control such economic factors as employment levels and interest rates. He opposes the Fed’s program of so-called “quantitative easing.”
Supporting a Strong National Defense and our Military Veterans
Richard supports our men and women in uniform and believes that a strong national defense is the best strategy to deter aggression. Richard believes that military force should be used only when a vital national interest is at stake and that any U.S. mission should come with clearly defined goals and objectives. Richard supports our Veterans and Wounded Warriors and will work to ensure that our Nation makes good on its commitment to those who have risked everything in the service of their Country.
