Thune Welcomes Release of Tax Reform Framework

“We must deliver on tax reform policies that will lead to more jobs,

fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks.”

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement today regarding the Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee’s release of the tax reform framework.

“The Obama era brought higher taxes, more regulations, and a stagnant economy. Congress now has the opportunity to implement pro-growth tax reform policies and provide relief to working families. The administration together with Speaker Ryan, Leader McConnell, and leaders of the Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee have produced a framework that gives us the ability to do just that. Working Americans across the country are living paycheck to paycheck. We must deliver on tax reform policies that will lead to more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks. I look forward to working with President Trump, leaders in both chambers of Congress, and my fellow members of the Finance Committee to ensure our reforms make it to the president’s desk for his signature.”
