McMorris Rodgers Statement on House GOP Tax Reform Blueprint

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 27, 2017) – Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) of Washington’s Fifth Congressional District today released the following statement on House Republicans’ Unified Framework for Fixing our Broken Tax Code, which can be found on

“We are on a mission to improve people’s lives, and the best way to create opportunities for hardworking Americans and their families is through simplified, permanent tax reform. People are struggling to find good-paying jobs, pay down school loans, or save more money for retirement. It’s about respecting and restoring the dignity that comes with work, by rewarding those who work hard so they can get ahead in life. Our plan creates jobs and raises wages, providing the peace of mind and access to financial stability that Americans have been searching for. We want moms and dads to be able to spend more time with their kids and less time at the kitchen table calculating their grocery budget. We want college grads to know that the world is open to them when they graduate – that nothing stands in their way of finding a good job. Our plan is about helping people rise and improving their quality of life. This is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure America will continue to be the land of opportunity.”

NOTE: This morning, the Congresswoman joined Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business Network to talk about the tax reform plan to raise wages and create jobs. As she told Maria, “A job is so fundamental. A job is what gives you opportunity. We want to empower everyone in our country to have the opportunity for a better life.” Watch her full interview here
