Senator David Perdue: Changes To Tax System Are Working

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s Rose Garden speech about the positive results we are seeing from historic tax cuts enacted this year:

“It’s refreshing to see President Trump talk directly to Americans about the positive changes he’s making to grow our economy. They’re definitely working. When President Trump took office, he established job one was to grow the economy. To do that, he worked with Congress to focus on three things: reducing unnecessary regulations, unlocking our energy potential, and changing our tax system. He’s acted on each of these top items and we are seeing real results. Consumer confidence is at a 17-year high, CEO confidence is at a 20-year high, and the tax cuts will bring back more than $2 trillion trapped abroad. Unleashing economic growth is a critical part of solving this $21 trillion national debt crisis, and President Trump is committed to keeping this positive economic momentum going.”
