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.
