"... no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States." - U.S. Constitution, Article VI Senate Democrats continue to obstruct President Donald J.

This week, Ivanka Trump joined Senate and House Republicans to discuss the importance of increasing the child tax credit for working families. "When you think about the last time there was comprehensive tax reform in this country, it was decades ago. And the composition of our workforce looked very different. And our homes looked very different. The costs of raising a family have grown exponentially. Today, in the vast majority of American homes, all parents work. Our tax code has to recognize and support this reality, and support our dual values of work and a family. … It is a priority of this administration, and it is a legislative priority, to ensure that American families can thrive, and that we deliver real and meaningful tax relief to middle-income Americans." - Ivanka Trump "I want to say thank you to the president, because he was clear, crystal clear, on the importance of making sure that the focus of tax reform was on hardworking Americans." - Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) "The most important institution in all of society is the family. And the most important job that any of us will ever do is to raise children and be parents. I don't care what title you have or organization you run, the most influential and important job you will ever have is the raising of your children." - Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) "This must be targeted to the middle-income American. This tax reform and tax cut bill must make a difference in their lives. I look forward to getting this across the finish line to make a big difference for so many of those working families out there today." - Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) "One of the things that this president talks about is making sure that there is relief for the middle class, and that's what this CTC (child tax credit) is all about." - Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) "We need to get this done, and in the coming weeks I expect that we will." - Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)

Tax Reform Unity

Middle-income Americans have had a rough time in recent years. It's not acceptable that 50 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. That's why Senate Republicans and the White House are supporting comprehensive tax reform that will lead to more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks for Americans.

A Growing Economy

"I can tell you what the overall goal is: Middle class tax relief, the stopping of job exportation-because of our horrible business tax structure in this country-to get the economy growing again." - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell?
"A third of the families in this country say they are only 400 dollars away from a financial crisis. That is unacceptable. This tax relief effort will bring much-needed relief for working families in this country." - Sen. John Thune

"A simpler, fairer, tax code will help our economy grow and help create jobs. Tax cuts will help all Texans and all Americans keep more of their hard earned paycheck.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas)
Senator Shelley Moore Capito: I think my four grandchildren will have a brighter future because of tax reform, which is the key to economic growth and vibrancy for future generations.
