Guinta For Congress - URGENT: Tax Reform Needed 


 This year, Americans will spend more than 6 billion hours and $168 billion filing their taxes with the IRS.


This year, Americans will spend more than 6 billion hours and $168 billion filing their taxes with the IRS. 

The amount of time and money we spend doing taxes is outrageous. We must fix our convoluted and burdensome tax code now.

The cost of our overly complex tax system is benefiting big government at the expense of middle class families and small businesses. This is time and money that should be focused on creating jobs, and growing our economy.

I believe we need a simpler, fairer and more competitive tax code that benefits everyone, not special interest groups. Add your name to stand with me for tax reform if you agree.

Yours in the fight,



US Rep Guinta introduces bipartisan autolending bill to save consumers millions per year 


WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Guinta joined Congressman Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) yesterday in introducing H.R. 1737 – the Reforming CFPB Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act of 2015 - to rescind flawed guidance from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) which harms consumers by limiting their ability to obtain discounted auto financing.


“In 2013, the CFPB implemented guidance without providing a public comment period for consumers, small businesses or stakeholders to prevent families and individuals from obtaining auto financing discounts.  From the single, working mother in Manchester to the small business owner on the Seacoast to the hunters of the north country – this bipartisan bill will provide as many opportunities as possible for Granite Staters to receive the best financing required to achieve car ownership.”


H.R. 1737 would repeal a CFPB bulletin from 2013 that was designed to pressure lending institutions into eliminating the availability of auto financing discounts.  These discounts save consumers millions of dollars every year.


Joining Congressman Guinta and Congressman Perlmutter, this strong bipartisan bill has 7 original co-sponsors, including Congressmen Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), David Scott (D-GA), Steve Stivers (R-OH), Brad Sherman (D-CA), Roger Williams (R-TX), Daniel Kildee (D-MI) and Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (D-OH.)
