Bobb Barr Says Cut Spending First

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Bob Barr has a new video on YouTube calling for cuts in government spending and tax reform.

Bob Barr states that cutting the size of the government spending is more important than changing tax policy. I like tax cuts a lot but the problem with the Bush administration has been government spending not the lack of tax cuts.

Bob Barr stresses the need for tax reform stating that any reform of the system would be better than what the United States has now. Bob Barr has been the supporter of the Fair Tax which is essentially a national sales tax plan. Bob Barr does mention he is open to other types of tax reform plans including a flat tax plan. This is good news because I dislike the fair tax because I am afraid it would impose a harsh regulatory burden on small businesses. Barr’s ability to consider other tax reform policies makes him a more of an attractive candidate for Libertarians.
