Chapter 16

In this chapter, the author introduces the idea suggesting that every individual in the US regards the ten existing tax system in the country was not work out effectively. According to the author, the tax system that was in place at the time which he was campaigning happened to be soft on some people and overwhelming to others, and thus some level of balance needs to be attained (Trump 186). Trump also mentions that the federal tax code is 74,608 pages long. It is also complicated, and very many people cannot understand it. It, therefore, makes sense to have a short tax code which can be read and understood by the many people who are required to remit their taxes to the government (Trump 189). Trump proposes tax reforms that begin with simplifying the tax code. The author mentions that the top priority for the government is to provide security for its citizens. Thus, the security of the people is attained by ensuring that the existing tax policies are not those that overbear the middle class (Trump 196). The tax code also needs to be one that encourages the activities of the private sector.


Taxation is always an important topic in any electioneering period in the US. While paying taxes is a duty and a great necessity, more action needs to be directed towards the development of tax laws that are bound to work for the best of the general population. Suggesting amendments in the tax code to make it understandable to many people in the US would, then, not be anticipated. This would also sound good to some people in the society who may have through that the tax system was exploiting them in any way. Therefore, this would lure more people to vote for him as president if proposed changes would favor them.
