Washington, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement after the Committee passed Tax Reform 2.0:
“By advancing Tax Reform 2.0, we are making sure America’s middle-class families and our small businesses keep more of what they earn, helping families and workers save more for their future, and spurring more new business start-ups here in America.
“It’s a sign of the partisan times that Democrats are not just fighting to raise taxes on our local families and businesses. In today’s votes, Democrats also tried to block families from using their savings for college debt and apprenticeship programs and fought letting moms and dads access their savings when welcoming a new child into their home.
“This is only the first step in the legislative process. We will continue to listen to members of the House and work to improve Tax Reform 2.0 at every opportunity as we advance these common-sense measures to the House floor.”
