Senator David Perdue Comments On Historic Opportunity To Fix Tax Structure

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the tax reform framework released today by the two Congressional tax writing committees:

“This is a historic opportunity to defend American workers against unfair competition. Other countries have already lowered their corporate tax rate and eliminated their repatriation taxes. Our current tax system penalizes American workers and we have to change that now. It’s time to simplify the archaic, 100-year-old individual tax structure and put the United States on a level playing field with the rest of the world. There must be a sense of urgency to get this done before Christmas.”
