Guess How Ben Carson Would Overhaul the Tax Code

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

GOP presidential primary contender, Dr. Ben Carson, proposed a 10 percent flat tax across the board on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.

While many conservatives applaud equal tax treatment under the law, many wonder, can it be done?

Politico reports:

Carson rejected host Chris Wallace’s information from the Tax Policy Center that in order for the government to raise as much money as it does now the flat tax rate would have to higher than 20 percent.

“If you eliminate the loopholes and the deductions, then you’re really talking about a rate between 10 and 15 percent,” Carson said his experts’ research has shown. “Let’s have a battle of the experts.”

A flat tax would help the government run like a business rather than the “great inefficient behemoth that we have now,” he said.

While Hillary Clinton continues to hide from the media, it’s great to see GOP thought leaders like Dr. Carson, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, and more, out there initiating an exchange of ideas.
