Capitol Report: Simplify the Tax Code

by Congressman Sam Graves

Every occupation has its busy season. For farmers, it’s during planting and harvesting. For teachers, it’s the hustle and bustle of a new year. For amusement parks, it’s the summer season. It’s no different for tax accountants who are busy studying up on the over 70,000 pages of tax rules and regulations.

I’ve never understood why we need a tax code that is so complex you

The Importance of Gubernatorial Appointments

Capitol Report

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri has more than 200 public boards and commissions that act as an interface between citizens and regulators. As regulations are passed down from the federal government or created at the state level, these boards and commissions are responsible for determining how to administer and implement these policies.

These different entities and the citizens who serve on them oversee and regulate many governmental

Congress Still Isn’t Being Responsible

by Lee H. Hamilton

Congress wound down its historically unproductive session with a small flurry of activity. It was a welcome change, but so long overdue that it can’t possibly make up for what should have been accomplished on Capitol Hill this year.

The problem is that for too long, members of Congress have been working hard at everything except the one thing they should have been working hard at:

Capitol Report

by Congressman Sam Graves

Throughout the course of history, the Christmas season seems to bring people together, even during times of war. For instance, in 1914, British and German troops stopped fighting during World War I while they decorated their barracks and sang Silent Night in English, French, and German.

Later, in World War II, battle was suspended on many fronts to tune into opera star Ernestine Schumann-Heink singing “Stille

Capitol Report: Capping the Growth of Government

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Our country was founded upon the cornerstone of less taxation. Our Founding Fathers envisioned a limited government that provided only the most basic and necessary services, while allowing the free market to grow organically as economic necessity dictated. We are far from that vision today.

Through incremental changes over generations, we’ve come to a point where our government takes (through sales taxes, income taxes, property

Capitol Report: Bureaucrats and School Lunches

by Congressman Sam Graves

It has become clearer than ever that Washington is out of touch with America. Too many bureaucrats and politicians don’t understand the effects of the rules and laws they create.

Take the National School Lunch Program for example. For the 2012-2013 school year, the Obama Administration began implementing new nutritional standards for school lunches. These rules coming down from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) are

Capitol Report: Protect Integrity By ‘Cooling Off’

by State Sen. Brad Lager

There is an inherent trust that should exist between the public and the elected/appointed officials they have chosen to represent them. This trust is at the cornerstone of our democracy and is necessary to make the democratic process possible. Without this trust, our government will weaken and if left unchecked, it will start to crumble.

The vast majority of elected officials are good people who

Capitol Report: Against the Incentives for Boeing

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

This past week was easily one of the most frustrating for me in the time I’ve served as your state representative. Gov. Nixon called the General Assembly together in an “extraordinary special session” to discuss the possibility of incentivizing Boeing into expanding their presence in Missouri to build a brand new airplane. This, to me, was a wise move on the part of the Governor
