Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement in support of the Republican-led effort to reform our nation’s broken tax code, grow the economy, and deliver relief to hardworking families across West Michigan.
“The tax reform framework released today is a positive first step in the effort to deliver much needed tax relief. The next step is to take this framework and meet with local manufacturers, agricultural producers, and families across West Michigan to get their input,” said Congressman Huizenga. “By doubling the standard deduction, low and moderate income families across West Michigan will be able keep more of their hard earned money. By reducing tax rates on small businesses, West Michigan job creators will be able to grow, export more goods, and create good-paying jobs here at home. Lastly, this proposal will help families save for college, purchase a home, or plan for retirement depending on their stage in life. I look forward to working with the President to grow our nation’s middle class as well as our economy by making the tax code simpler, fairer, and more competitive.”

So much for Nancy Pelosi's tax reform "Armageddon." Job Creators Network's Alfredo Ortiz does a great job discussing how tax reform is strengthening the economy, raising wages, and improving benefits for hardworking employees while also exposing the false rhetoric being used by Democrats.
