Cruz: ‘Abolish the IRS’

Cruz: ‘Abolish the IRS’

I think we ought to abolish the IRS and instead move to a simple flat tax where the average American can fill our taxes on a postcard, put down how much you earn, put down a deduction for charitable contribution, for home mortgage, and how much you owe,” Cruz said in an interview with Fox News on Monday.

“It ought to be just a simple one-page postcard and take the agents, bureaucracy out of Washington and limit the power of government,” he added.

Lawmakers are probing the IRS’s use of higher scrutiny for Tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status.
