Brady: We Support Wage AND Job Increases for All

January 26, 2021

THE WOODLANDS–The top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after reports surfaced that Democrats are considering tax hikes to force another new federal mandate that would hurt struggling small businesses and Americans looking for work:

“Republicans believe we must increase wages and job opportunities for all workers, and we’ve gotten real results, with tax and regulatory reforms achieving historic surges in jobs and wages for women, Asians, Black Americans, and those without a college degree, prior to the pandemic.

“Rejecting what worked and demanding job-killing mandates and higher taxes on Main Street businesses—could Democrats possibly play to stereotype any more than this? Workers, families, and small businesses don’t need more partisan regulatory barriers, they need more opportunities that we should provide by working together.”
