New Ad Calls on Congress to Reform ‘Complicated’ Tax Code


The American Action Network, a center-right nonprofit advocacy group, has release a new ad illustrating the need for Congress to reform an overly complicated tax code.

The ad, "Too Complicated," shows a working couple, Jim and Lindsay Pratt, who state that the complex federal tax code doesn't work for them.

"Working families know that life is complicated enough," Jim Pratt begins.

The ad features the couple with their young daughters, and explains how Jim runs his own small business and both work full-time. The Pratts call for a "simpler, fairer" tax code by closing tax loopholes, and implementing "real tax cuts."

Tax reform has been a top domestic priority of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republican leadership.

AAN, a nonprofit issue advocacy group promoting center-right policy, has said it will spend $2.5 million on advertising for tax reform, Bloomberg reported. The ads will run in 23 Republican held Congressional districts, and primarily in swing districts. The ads will also be modified with the contact information of local representatives in order to target specific lawmakers.
