Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

“The American people have waited 30 years for meaningful tax reform, and I am excited the House of Representatives voted to deliver on the key promise to simplify the complex code and cut taxes for all Americans. Our burdensome tax system has stifled innovation, punished middle class families and small business owners, and hindered us in the global economy. This bill is all about bigger paychecks, higher wages, more jobs, and less government in the way of American ingenuity.

“We have achieved a critical step in the long process of overhauling our tax code. However, the work can’t stop here. We have continually seen bills become weaker or not make it across the finish line in the Senate. Although this may be a political victory in the House, the American people don’t win until President Trump signs the bill into law. The Senate must stay true to their word.

“I will continue to keep my promises to my constituents and support President Trump with the conservative agenda. We must reinvigorate our economy, invest in our future, and unleash the American dream for each and every person in this great country. We must Make America Great Again.”
