Fifty-seven percent of voters, including 66 percent of independents, said they believe the tax system needs to be overhauled or changed in a major way.
A new poll shows there is a growing appetite for tax reform, the next legislative priority of the White House and GOP-led Congress.
Fully 52.3 percent of likely voters surveyed said they believe that income taxes in the U.S. are too high. That includes 46 percent of Democrats, 50 percent of independents, and 62 percent of Republicans.
An astonishing 90 percent of voters said they believed that the personal income tax system is very or somewhat complex.
Unsurprisingly, 57 percent of voters said they believe the tax code needs to be overhauled or changed in a major way. That number includes 66 percent of independents.
Perhaps most surprisingly, nearly 70 percent of Democrats said they want their member of Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to get things done.
“This new survey comes with a strong warning that Americans expect both parties to work together and would reject efforts by members of Congress to obstruct these popular proposals,” said Corry Bliss, American Action Network (AAN) Executive Director.
The poll, which has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent, was conducted by GS Strategy group and commissioned by AAN’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative.
