Yesterday was a historic day for tax reform. For the first time in 31 years, there was not only the first legislative movement on tax reform, but the first affirmative vote to pass the bill out of the House of Representatives.
The coalition members at Main Street Growth and Opportunity applaud the House of Representatives for coming together and passing their long-awaited tax reform bill—the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R.1). The bill lowers business tax rates, makes filing taxes easy and simple, doubles the standard deduction for middle class families, and closes special-interest loopholes so that everyone pays their fair share.
The bill’s passage is a huge step toward pro-growth tax reform – but this vote is just one step down the path. The Senate is planning their vote for Thursday, November 30. We need you to make your voices heard, and push for tax reform now. Remember, after the Senate vote – Congress needs to come together again to push it through Conference and get a bill to the President’s desk before the end of the year.
As Congress is getting to work on this critical pro-growth legislation, we’re telling Congress to support American workers and businesses and pass tax reform now! Join in on the conversation using #taxreformnow and #TCJA.
