Tax Reform For The Middle Class

Sen. McConnell: ‘Taxes Should Be Lower, Simpler And Fairer For Middle-Class Workers’

SEN. DEAN HELLER (R-NV): “Our middle class has suffered under an outdated and unfair tax code that discourages job creation and makes it harder for Nevadans, and people all across America, to get ahead. … And now, we have a prime opportunity to do that and provide relief to the Americans who have been waiting for a fairer, simpler tax code. To me, relief means letting the middle class keep more of their hard-earned paycheck and making our tax code easy to understand.” (Sen. Heller, Press Release, 9/14/2017)

Sen. Hatch: ‘Let Hardworking Families Keep More Of Their Hard-Earned Dollars’

SEN. MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY), Senate Majority Leader: “We think taxes should be lower, simpler and fairer for middle-class workers — so Americans can keep more of their own hard-earned money in their paychecks.” (Sen. McConnell, Remarks, 10/16/2017)

SEN. ORRIN HATCH (R-UT), Senate Finance Committee Chairman: “For too long, Americans have been bogged down by an outdated tax code that runs counter to the goal of growth and fails to promote jobs and investment here at home… Providing much-needed relief – whether it be doubling the standard deduction or expanding the Child Tax Credit – will help lift the middle class and let hardworking families keep more of their hard-earned dollars. (Sen. Hatch, Press Release, 9/27/2017)

REP. PAUL RYAN (R-WI), Speaker Of The House Of Representatives: “So the whole purpose of this is to unrig the deal, unrig the economy, unrig the tax code, get rid of those loopholes, and just lower everybody’s tax rates and simplify the system. ... Simplify it so you can do your taxes on a post card and just keep your money in the first place.” (Rep. Ryan, Press Release, 10/13/2017)

REP. KEVIN BRADY (R-TX), House Ways And Means Committee Chiarman: “The details really do need to be filled in by the tax writing committees in the House and Senate, because we're really trying to drive a major middle-class tax cut. …what I can guarantee, we're going to work hard to make sure we lower tax rate[s] and allow families getting more of what they earned regardless of where they live.” (Bloomberg TV, 10/11/2017)
