No, tax reform doesn’t hurt people with disabilities

Communications • December 18, 2017

Defenders of the status quo are at it again. They’re relentless. As we prepared to vote on the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, opposition continued to resort to its doomsday rhetoric. It’s not productive, it’s not realistic, and it’s scaring people to score political victories. Sad! Does tax reform hurt women? No. Does tax reform …

Veterans Day: Serving those who served our country

Rep. Rick Crawford (R-AR) • November 10, 2017

Every American deserves the opportunity to pursue their own unique version of the American Dream.

Tax reform isn’t about brackets — it’s about people

Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA) • November 3, 2017

If you want to see the face of tax reform, look to America’s First District. Since America’s founding, the First District of Virginia, my home, has been a stronghold for hardworking men and women who grow food, raise their families, and help shape what we now consider the American Dream.
