2016 Presidential candidate: Ben Carson calls for tax changes in Reno speech

The Associated Press

Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is continuing his call for major changes to the country’s tax code and a more prominent American role in world affairs.

The retired pediatric neurosurgeon touched on several policy topics and discussed his own background during a speech Tuesday at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Carson outlined several of his proposals to a crowd gathered outside the school’s student union. The ideas include a six-month corporate tax holiday, decreasing the government’s say in federal money given to states and creating a “flat tax” based on the biblical concept of tithing.

Carson is scheduled to speak at a national gathering of Latino leaders in Las Vegas on Wednesday. He also spoke at a Las Vegas charity fundraiser in May.
