Q: Why should I care about tax reform?

Simply put, because polls show that citizens like you overwhelmingly value government programs like natural disaster preparedness, early-childhood education, meals on wheels for seniors, clean water and air, repairs to roads and bridges, and veterans benefits. All of these are funded by taxes, and tax reform has the potential to ensure that our government raises enough revenue to fund the services that citizens overwhelmingly value.
