Tax Reform Will Bring Economic Growth, Tax Relief And Jobs To Middle Class
‘It’s clear that we are united in the effort to take more money out of Washington’s pockets and put more in middle-class pockets. It’s also clear that we are all excited about this once-in-a-generation opportunity to get America going again and growing again.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding tax reform:
“Senate Republicans had a productive discussion with President Trump yesterday about our shared agenda. We were particularly focused on how to bring tax relief, economic growth, and jobs to the middle class through tax reform.
“It’s clear that we share a lot of the same goals. It’s clear that we are united in the effort to take more money out of Washington’s pockets and put more in middle-class pockets. It’s also clear that we are all excited about this once-in-a-generation opportunity to get America going again and growing again.
“And so, we’re watching our friends in the House with anticipation as they consider the comprehensive, responsible budget that cleared the Senate last week. We anticipate they’ll pass it by the end of the week. Once they do, we’ll have important legislative tools to move tax reform forward. That’s something everyone can look forward to.
“More importantly, that’s something the American people deserve, especially after so many years of an economy that failed to reach its potential — an economy that, so often, failed them. Tax reform represents the single most important thing we can do today to get the economy reaching for its full potential. We’re looking forward to taking the next steps soon to get it done.”
