McMorris Rodgers Votes to Give Tax Relief to Eastern Washington Families

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 16, 2017) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the House passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1), the House plan to provide tax relief to millions of hardworking families and create more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks.

“This is a historic moment. It’s been 31 years since the tax code was fundamentally reformed,said McMorris Rodgers.

“We’re looking out for middle class families who deserve the same chance as everyone else to get ahead. The hardworking men and women of America deserve a tax code that puts them first. We’ve created a plan that rewards hard work, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, and levels the playing field so that everyone plays by the same rules.

“Our plan to lift the tax burden off Americans puts more money back in people’s paychecks and helps Americans go from garage to global success. We’re bringing jobs back from overseas and strengthening Main Street. Our plan simplifies the tax code, closes loopholes, and creates peace of mind for Americans everywhere.

“Thank you to all of the House Ways and Means members, and especially Chairman Brady, for putting forth a plan that delivers significant tax relief and rewrites the tax code to put hard working Americans first.”

NOTE: This morning, Rep. McMorris Rodgers joined America’s Newsroom to preview today’s historic vote on pro-family, pro-growth tax reform and President Trump’s visit to Capitol Hill. Watch the full interview here.
