Today, the House of Representatives passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. After careful review of the legislation, I voted in support of the bill because of the relief that it will provide to families and small businesses in Indiana’s Ninth District.
In 2016, Americans spent more than 8.9 billion hours and $409 billion complying with the confusing IRS regulations and tax filing requirements. Hoosier families deserve better.
You should be able to file taxes easily and keep more of your hard-earned paychecks.
For too long, American businesses have been fighting with one hand tied behind their back. Your federal government had been incentivizing companies to move overseas instead of investing in jobs and growth right here in Indiana. This bill changes that.
By passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we are ensuring:
- Bigger Paychecks by allowing families to keep more of their hard-earned dollars.
- More Jobs by incentivizing companies to stay in America and invest right here at home instead of overseas.
- A simpler tax code by throwing out special-interest loopholes and consolidating deductions.
Driving the District, I consistently hear from Hoosiers that we need a tax code that empowers businesses to thrive, grow, create more jobs, increase paychecks, and invest in our communities. Today’s vote was a vote for bigger paychecks, more jobs, and a simpler tax code, bettering the lives of all Hoosiers, enabling everyone to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks, and empowering all to build better futures.
Be of good cheer,
