Tax reform is about moving forward, and you get an input! So tell us what YOU want from Tax Reform.
Our vision for tax reform is about moving forward. It’s about ending an outdated and burdensome 31-year-old status quo. It’s about putting American workers back at the center of our tax code.
When it comes to big processes and complex legislation, it’s easy to get lost in the jumble and bureaucracy. That’s why we want you to see the tax reform framework for yourself. It’s the same nine-page document that the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee are using to guide their deliberations as they draft the official tax reform legislation.
There’s been a lot of fake news circulating since we released this framework on September 27. It’s important to understand that the framework (the same one you are seeing) is the only official document surrounding tax reform right now.
Despite there being no bill text, the Tax Policy Center (TPC) has made the bold, unwarranted leap that our plan will raise taxes on the middle class. This is incorrect. The middle class was our focus when writing the framework, and their needs will continue to be the focus as Ways and Means and the Senate Finance Committee put pen to paper and draft a bill.
“This so-called study is misleading, unfounded, and biased.” Ways and Means Chair Kevin Brady explained, “TPC makes a variety of overreaching and unrealistic assumptions about policy decisions Members of Congress still have to make as we draft pro-growth tax legislation.”
Or as Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL), Chairman of the Tax Policy Subcommittee Put it, “Would you trust a movie review written by someone who has only looked at a poster?”
The point is, we want you to be up-to-date and spared all the doublespeak surrounding tax reform. As information becomes available, as decisions are being made, we will be keeping you in the know.
In the meantime, while we wait on the penning of official legislation, take 30 seconds and tell us what YOU want from Tax Reform.
