My district is the face of tax reform

More jobs. Fairer taxes. Bigger paychecks.

Those are the goals of our plan for tax reform, and they’re inspired by the people who elected us to be their voice here in representative government.

Today, I get to share that voice on a more personal level. House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers will join me at JEB Designs in Hope Mills, North Carolina to meet with local families to talk about the impact tax reform will have on working families across the state and across the nation.

I know I speak for both of us when I say we’re looking forward to hearing their stories and learning more about how the tax code impacts their lives.

This tour is appropriately called the “Faces of Tax Reform.”

Tax policy is wonky and can be a little complicated. But every statistic we share, every dollar saved, and every bracket changed is so much more than numbers on a spreadsheet.

Those numbers represent farmers and teachers and parents and small business owners — people who work hard and try to get ahead with a tax code that barely lets them get by.

Those numbers represent untapped potential. Those numbers represent our family, friends, and neighbors.

For me, it’s about the people of North Carolina’s 8th District. My family has been here for seven generations — this is my home. And every week, I meet with men and women across this district who want a tax code that works for them:

Farmers like the Baucoms in Stanly County, who want to keep their hard work in the family, and need the “Death Tax” out of their way.

Small business owners like Courtney Ketchie Silver of Ketchie Incorporated, who are providing jobs to our communities, but need the freedom to grow.

And children like my young son, Lane, who deserve to know their generation’s pursuit of the American Dream, rather than grow up with a tax code that will punish hard work.

Those are some of the faces of tax reform, and some of the countless reminders why I’m working with my colleagues towards comprehensive, pro-growth tax reform.
