The Chair’s Remarks, as Delivered:

“It is a hopeful day, it is a brighter day, for all Americans and their families. If you think about the impact of this package on everyday Americans, it is so clear — whether you are moms or dads, students, seniors, or small business owners — everyone is going to have an opportunity for a better life. That’s why we are so excited today to see that Tax Cuts & Jobs [Act] pass the House with such a big vote.

“As we move forward, we will continue to celebrate all this bill has to offer. You think about bringing down tax rates for all Americans. You think about those who have an idea to start a business, grow a business, [and] create jobs.

“This is the beginning of a new, brighter future for them. That is why we stand here so excited about what it means for people, for everyday Americans, and the hardworking men and women that have been doing all the right things but feel like they are falling behind. They have a bright future.”
