McMorris Rodgers: Out with the old, in with the new (tax code)
WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 17, 2018) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) penned an op-ed in the Spokesman-Review and joined CNBC’s Squawk Box to talk about Tax Day 2018, and celebrate that it will be the last time people have to file under the old, broken tax code. On CNBC she said, “What encourages me the most is that it is bringing hope and optimism to this country again. We had seen years of stagnant wages, a stagnant economy, and now people are optimistic again. I was just visiting a company in Spokane, Sonderen Packaging. Their employees are going to get between $70 and $300 in their paycheck increase, but it was the optimism that really inspired me, as you hear people that are more hopeful again. They’re dreaming again. That’s what we want for people.” In case you missed it, you can see her full interview here:
In her column this morning for the Spokesman-Review, Cathy celebrated how this year will be the last time people will have to file under the old, broken tax code. As she said, “It’s the last time you will file under a tax code that works against you rather than for you—a tax code that made it difficult for families and small businesses to get by, let alone get ahead. Next tax day will bring real relief to the annual hassle of filing taxes. The new law is designed to enable people in Eastern Washington to file their taxes in a simple and straightforward way.” You can read Cathy’s full piece here.
