(Sioux City, IA) Sam Clovis, candidate for U.S. Senate, spent Tax Day campaigning on the merits of the Fair Tax.  Clovis stated, “Between special interest loopholes and the targeting of political opponents, the IRS has become a burden Americans can well do without.”  The Fair Tax will repeal the current tax code and replace it with a national sales tax.

“70,000-plus pages of ridiculous punishment of American productivity is a very good reason to abolish the tax code,” said Clovis.  “Using the IRS to stifle the free speech of political opponents is an obvious reason to scrap the whole thing.  And lobbyists using their influence to gain special status at the expense of everyone else is just one more reason American needs fundamental tax reform.”

The Fair Tax replaces all federal income taxes, capital gains taxes, payroll taxes, and the death tax and puts a national sales tax in its place.  “American is being humiliated by its own government,” said Clovis.  “And abolishing the IRS is the first step in reestablishing the proper relationship between the citizen and government.

Sam Clovis holds a Masters in Business Administration in Management and a Doctorate in Public Administration.  He is currently a tenured full professor at a private liberal arts college in northwest Iowa.  He served in the United States Air Force for 25 years and still provides leadership to defense and homeland security institutions.  He lives in Hinton, IA with his wife Charlotte and stepson Khan.  More information on the candidate and his campaign may be obtained at
