Conservative Groups Praise Unified Tax Reform Framework | Speaker.gov

Yesterday, House, Senate, and White House leaders unveiled a unified framework for tax reform, and the response from conservative organizations has been overwhelming. These groups recognize that this bold, pro-growth tax reform means more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks.

Read the full framework here, a one-pager of the highlights here, and check out what conservative leaders are saying below:

American Action Network: “The White House and congressional leaders have unveiled a unified and bold plan to move forward on pro-growth tax reform that puts middle-class families and job creators first.”

Americans for Prosperity: “This is a strong framework for the kind of bold, pro-growth reform we’ve been working to support all year.  If Congress can translate policy like this into legislation, we can expect a renaissance for the U.S. economy, job growth and production to follow. This plan will improve lives by allowing Americans to keep more money in their paychecks and ensuring the United States is the best place in the world to do business.”

Americans for Tax Reform: “The Republican tax reform plan will turbo-charge the economy, create millions of new jobs and make America the best place in the world to invest, build and create.”

Citizens Against Government Waste: “The ‘Big Six’ tax reform plan is a historic opportunity to unleash the economic potential of the American people.  If the plan is enacted, Americans will get to keep more of their own money, filing taxes will be far simpler, and small businesses will boost wages and create jobs.”

Club for Growth: “Club for Growth is very encouraged and pleased with the long-awaited tax reform outline that the Big Six released today. . . . The outline is both aggressive and very pro-growth with its rate reductions.  Club for Growth congratulates the members of the Big Six for their hard work and will continue to support the pro-growth efforts of the Trump administration and Congress as they seek to make tax reform a reality.”

Faith & Freedom Coalition: “President Trump, Speaker Ryan, Leader McConnell and other leaders in Congress and the administration have unveiled a historic overhaul of the U.S. tax code that will provide real tax relief for American families and business. Americans of faith support these efforts to repeal the Johnson Amendment, expand the child tax credit, double the standard deduction for individuals and married couples, and provide relief for small businesses to unleash the full power of the American economy to create jobs, and allow parents to better provide for their families.”

Freedom Partners: “This framework is a giant step for a stronger economy, and more jobs and higher wages for the American people. Making it a reality would let taxpayers keep more of their hard-earned money, increase America’s global competitiveness, and send a message that there will be no better place in the world to invest and create jobs than the United States.”

FreedomWorks: “The framework released today represents a transformation of America’s tax code and would help the middle class. It simplifies a complex system that taxpayers spend billions annually to comply with and will spur economic growth, allowing American businesses to increase wages and create more jobs.”

Heritage Action:Heritage Action applauds President Trump and congressional leaders for uniting behind a coherent set of reforms and reductions that align with conservative priorities.  If enacted, there is no doubt such a plan would unleash economic growth, create jobs and increase wages.”

Hispanic Leadership Fund: The Hispanic Leadership Fund applauds the tax reform framework—today’s proposal is the start of much needed reform to fix our country’s broken tax code.  We applaud the focus on relief for middle-class families, increasing the Child Tax Credit, substantially lowering the top rate for small and family-owned businesses, and lowering the corporate rate from the highest in the world to a level that will spur job creation and economic growth.”

National Taxpayers Union: “For overburdened taxpayers, the wait is over – Congress and the President are not only reading from the same book on tax reform, they’re now getting on the same page. The core tax reform principles they’ve outlined in today’s framework can deliver on relief for middle-class families and individuals, a simpler filing process, a fairer system that allows all businesses to create more jobs, and ultimately a prosperous economy.
