On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, former Dallas mayor Tom Leppert said he wants to make changes in the tax code.

“Unlike most of the politicians, we actually  lay out a plan.  We talk about taxes, specifically, how to take a 70,000 page tax code and make it much simpler, much flatter.”

Regarding spending, Leppert said congress needs more discipline.   He also talked about shining some light on regulations businesses have to deal with.
