Trump Urges Simpler Tax Code: 'I Want to Make It So the Middle Class Benefits'
On "Hannity" tonight, Sean Hannity asked Donald Trump how he would change the tax code if he was elected president.
Trump said he doesn't believe in a flat tax, stating that he thinks as people make more and more money, they can afford to pay a higher rate.
He said he does want to set a cap, however, to encourage business activity and economic growth.
Trump pointed out that our economy loses hundreds of billions dollars a year, and that will be even worse once ObamaCare kicks in.
"We can't do that. We're going to be a Greece on steroids," Trump said. "Here's what I want to do. I want to simplify the tax code. I want to cut taxes, but I want to simplify the tax code."
He explained that he wants to make the tax code so simple that everyday Americans can file their own taxes. He said he aims to put H&R Block out of business.
"I want to make it great for the middle class. The middle class is being killed ... I want to make it so the middle class benefits."
