Jenkins touts tax reform

President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said today that one of the first post-election orders of business is to reach a deal to reduce the nation's debt.

Boehner offered to pursue a deal with Obama, who won a second term on Tuesday, that would include higher revenues as part of a revamped tax code that reduced rates for all, according to The Associated Press.

U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, said as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, she was ready to work on overhauling the tax code.

"Tax reform will raise revenue, reduce the $1 trillion in spending through the tax code, make the code more fair, efficient, and easier to comply with, and encourage job creation," said Jenkins, who also won re-election last night to represent the district that includes all of Douglas County.
