He also wants to cut personal income tax brackets from seven to three, with the lowest rate at 10 per cent.

The former Florida governor is outlining his proposals in an essay published Tuesday on The Wall Street Journal’s website.

Bush says he wants to create a tax code that is “simple, fair and clear,” and predicts it will help the U.S. economy grow faster.

He proposes doubling the standard deduction, eliminating the marriage penalty, expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit and ending the estate tax and Alternative Minimum Taxe. He also would end the employee’s share of the Social Security tax on earnings for workers 67 and older.

    the Fair Tax is the way to go you dummies in Wshington.

  • Mr. Bush’s tax plan is “simple, fair and clear”? Compare it to Rand Paul’s REALLY simple tax plan!

  • Richard Hennessy

    Bush’s tax proposal is the establishment plan. The only effective tax reform is the Fair Tax sales tax. As long as we have an income tax, the Congress will continue to provide tax breaks for its friends and contributors, and continue to soak the middle class.

    Jeb Bush is a PROGRESSIVE. The RNC does not care about anyone but their own ol’ boy club.

    Karl Rove can bloviate all he wants, but it won’t help this country a lick if we elect another Bush.

    Jeb Bush will just nominate another PROGRESSIVE like John Roberts and we will end up even further in the hole.
