Senator David Perdue Comments On Historic Tax Cuts

“We delivered on an historic opportunity to cut taxes and fix the archaic tax code”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement after the U.S. Senate took historic action to fix the tax code:

“For years, American workers and companies have struggled to compete with the rest of the world. Not anymore. Today, we delivered on an historic opportunity to cut taxes and fix the archaic tax code. This is a major win for the American people. Lower tax rates for individuals and businesses will raise wages, grow the economy, and make our country competitive again. We will see a boost in consumer and CEO confidence, which have already reached their highest levels in decades. As a business guy, I know these tax changes will stimulate the economy and create the growth we need to solve this debt crisis. President Trump and Vice President Pence worked in lock step with the Senate to get this done. They gave us a clear objective: pass a plan that will change American lives by putting people back to work, putting more money back in their pockets, and making American businesses competitive once again. Today, I’m very proud to say, we got this done.”
