Chairman Brady promises to land pro-growth tax reform as soon as budget clears the runway

CPPP pushes back, asking Chairman Brady and Sen. Cornyn if they'll work to provide more relief for working families

Passing a pro-growth tax reform plan is possible by the end of the year, Texas Congressman Kevin Brady told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce this week.

Brady is one of six key negotiators on the GOP Tax Plan as chair of the House Ways & Means Committee. While much of the media coverage has focused on gains for the wealthy, Brady’s message was pro-business and pro-growth at yesterday’s chamber event.

The United States has some of the best and brightest workers, Brady said, but the economy has been stagnant for a decade: fewer jobs, fewer storefronts and fewer startups. The country has been defined by grit and determination, but more jobs continue to head overseas, the chairman said. The new tax plan has three objectives: more jobs, bigger paychecks and lower taxes, he said.
