McMorris Rodgers Statement on Republicans’ Unified Framework for Tax Reform 

Washington, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement on the Republicans’ Unified Framework for Fixing our Broken Tax Code, which can be found on

“We are on a mission to improve people’s lives, and the best way to create opportunities for hardworking Americans and their families is through simplified, permanent tax reform. People are struggling to find good-paying jobs, pay down school loans, or save more money for retirement. It’s about respecting and restoring the dignity that comes with work, by rewarding those who work hard so they can get ahead in life. Our plan creates jobs and raises wages, providing the peace of mind and access to financial stability that Americans have been searching for. We want moms and dads to be able to spend more time with their kids and less time at the kitchen table calculating their grocery budget. We want college grads to know that the world is open to them when they graduate – that nothing stands in their way of finding a good job. Our plan is about helping people rise and improving their quality of life. This is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure America will continue to be the land of opportunity.”

The House Republican Conference released the following video highlighting how the tax reform plan will increase opportunities for all Americans:

NOTE: On Tuesday at a House Republican Leadership Press Conference, Chair McMorris Rodgers said: “America was built on freedom, opportunity, and hard work. It’s the foundation of innovation, ingenuity, and it’s time that our tax code reflects those priorities. Reforming the tax code is how we help lift those who were left behind.” Watch her remarks here.
