What Do Fox Broadcasting and the American Tax Code Have In Common?

COMMUNICATIONS • August 25, 2017

On October 9, 1986, the Fox Broadcasting group set out to compete with ABC, CBS, and NBC. Its first show to hit the air was The Late Show, hosted by Joan Rivers at the time. That same year, President Ronald Reagan signed the last major reform to the tax code into law.

In the 31 years since, Fox has become a major broadcasting network with affiliated companies operating multiple entertainment channels in extensive international markets.

Meanwhile, the American tax code has only become outdated, ineffective, and harmful to American families and businesses.

It’s clear that simply tinkering with our broken tax code won’t fix these problems. Today, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to move forward with bold, pro-growth tax reform to create jobs, grow wages, and vault America back into the lead.

SO, WHAT DOES OUR VISION LOOK LIKE?

Our vision for tax reform…

This 40 percent tax is imposed as a second or third layer of taxes on a person’s business or other assets when they are passed down to the next generation. With today’s broken tax code, even death is a taxable event.

Many of you are looking at our current tax code and seeing a document that discourages savings and investment instead of encouraging and rewarding your success.

We’re changing that.
