Innis Calls For Reforms To Budget Process, Tax Code

Credit Candidate's Facebook Profile

Dan Innis, a Republican Candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s first district, has released a proposal for reforming the country’s budget. The former Dean of the UNH Business School Dan has proposed requiring that a budget be passed every two years and enforcing a strict timeline on the budget process. He is also calling for tax code reform: closing loopholes and eliminating deductions in order to broaden the tax base.

“The bottom line is the tax code has to be simpler, it has to be something people understand,” said Innis in a phone interview.

Innis’ laundry list of reforms also includes one that could prove problematic with some primary voters: taking the option of not raising the debt limit off the table.

“The key is to avoid getting into this situation in the first place,” says Innis, “To develop responsible budgeting, to stick to the budget, and to ensure we don’t end up in a situation where we’re looking at a shut down or risking default.”

Innis will face former congressman Frank Guinta in the Republican primary.Dan Innis, a Republican Candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s first district, has released a proposal for reforming the country’s budget.
