“It’s time to deliver fairness for all taxpayers.
“It’s time to lower taxes for all Americans on every income level.
“It’s time to cut the sky-high tax rate on businesses so that American headquarters and American jobs no longer move overseas for a better deal.
“It’s time to end the death tax.
“It’s time to level the playing field for American manufacturers and make America more competitive.
“It’s time for tax reform that creates over a million new jobs and helps Americans keep more of their hard-earned money.
“It’s time for Washington to lead on this issue now – and that’s what we are doing.
“Tomorrow, Ways and Means Republicans will hold a major hearing on tax reform, related to growth, jobs, wages, and the U.S. economy.
