#TaxReformTuesday: Ways and Means Republicans

November 07, 2017

In this week’s #TaxReformTuesday, Ways and Means Republicans give us a glimpse into how transformational tax reform will help Americans in their districts, and across the nation. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is going to deliver hardworking individuals, families, and job creators of all sizes with tax relief that will let them keep and invest more of the money that they earn.

Here’s what they had to say:

Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD):Hi everyone. Welcome to the beautiful state of South Dakota.”

Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC):I’m Tom Rice from the 7th district of South Carolina.”

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA): “Welcome. We’re here in the San Joaquin Valley today.”

Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN): “Hi, I’m Congressman Erik Paulsen from Minnesota’s 3rd congressional district, joining you on Tax Reform Tuesday.”

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL): “Here’s what I know: our tax code is a disaster.”

Rep. Mike Bishop (R-MI): “I know there are so many obstacles that you, your family, and small businesses face as a result of today’s overly complicated tax code.”

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA): “What every American is looking for today is pro-growth tax reform.”

Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA): “They struggle because they’ve got a tax code that’s so burdensome.”

Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD): “South Dakota is filled with small businesses who understand they want the loopholes and gimmicks gone. They just want lower rates.”

Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN): “Manufacturers like this one know our tax code is broken.”

Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX): “It makes no sense that we force our companies to pay the highest tax rate in the developed world.”

Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL): “That’s wrong, and that’s bad for our economy.”

Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH): “This is exactly why we must overhaul and simplify our tax code.”

Rep. Jim Renacci (R-OH): We need to lower rates to jumpstart our nation’s stagnant economy.”

Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX): “It is time for Congress to take the burden off of them with a simple tax code and lower tax rates.”

Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS): “The Ways and Means Committee has embarked on an effort to streamline the tax code for the first time since 1986.”

Rep. Diane Black (R-TN): “So here’s what we’re going to do – we’re going to create a system that is fairer, flatter, and simpler.”

Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ): “The simplification – a fairer tax system – with rates that actually stimulate growth and job opportunities for all.”

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX): “That 9 out of 10 Americans will be able to file their taxes on a postcard-like system.”

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL): “That small business owners — like the family who came from Cuba decades ago and struggled to build this wonderful restaurant — can invest more in the community, provide better jobs, and pay their employees more.”

Rep. Pat Meehan (R-PA): “It means jobs not only here in my district, but it also means the retention of very skilled employees.”

Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE): “That means more money in your pockets.  That means more money for you to invest.”

Rep. George Holding (R-NC): “I’m committed to being on the frontlines of creating a simplified tax code that lowers the tax rate for hardworking Americans.”

Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY): “This is about reforming the code to make it simple, to make it fair, and make it competitive.”

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL): “This place – Capitol Hill – is supposed to work for people, and we are determined to reform this tax code.”

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX): “This is our moment to make transformational tax reform a reality for the American people. Let’s seize it in a bold way that they deserve.”
