House Clears the Way for Historic Tax Reform

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA – The House of Representatives today took a major step forward towards tax reform by passing a budget resolution for Fiscal Year 2018. Importantly, the move sets instructions for Congress to pass tax reform through the budget reconciliation process this year.

Freedom Partners Vice President of Policy Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“American families deserve tax relief, more jobs and bigger paychecks. Tax reform will help give it to them. The current tax code is rigged to benefit special interests at the expense of hardworking taxpayers while the average American finds it tougher and tougher to get ahead or save for the future. We applaud the House for passing this budget, setting in motion a crucial first step in unrigging the tax code and fighting for comprehensive tax reform Americans deserve. We urge the Senate to carry this momentum forward by passing its budget in order to make the idea of historic tax reform a reality.”
