House Members Tout Tax Reform, Part II
Last week, we sent you a few examples of what House Republicans are doing to highlight the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. You may have already guessed this, but there’s more where that came from:
After the Ways and Means Committee passed the bill, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced that the House would be voting on it this week “to deliver a win for the American people.”
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) appeared on The Mike Gallagher Show with a simple message: “We’ve got to get [tax reform] done. Failure is not an option. That’s been my approach from the beginning . . . Our tax cutting and jobs bill is what this economy needs. Families want to see more money in their pockets. They’re going to, under our bill, have more of their hard-earned money saved in their pockets by lower tax rates.”
Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) explained what our tax plan will mean for a public school teacher earing $54,000 a year in this video. (Spoiler: It’s a $1,800 tax cut.)
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) wrote an op-ed in the Gainesville Times explaining how the House tax reform plan will return the focus to U.S. workers.
To take the message directly to his constituents, Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY) has asked folks to share their tax stories so he can explain what the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will mean for people on a personal basis.
Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) released a post-passage statement explaining what the bill will mean for South Floridians: “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act puts middle-income American families first with a larger child tax credit and a new family flexibility credit that will help them keep more of their hard-earned paychecks.”
Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) made a great point that speaks to the importance of regular order: “Reforming America’s complicated and broken tax code is too important to not get right.”
Speaking of regular order, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) offered specifics in an op-ed: “After years of hearings and meetings and listening to people across this country, we look forward to getting this done before the end of this year. Simply stated, we want a tax code that works for you.”
And just this morning, Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA) joined the leadership press conference to drive the message home: The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will provide “more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks.” Watch the full press conference here.
