CASE Statement on President’s Tax Reform Proposal
Today CASE – Consumer Action for a Strong Economy – the nation’s preeminent free-market consumer advocacy organization, issued the following statement regarding the Tax Reform proposal put forth today by President Trump and key leaders in Congress:
“CASE enthusiastically supports the bold and dynamic Tax Reform proposal released today by President Trump and Congressional leaders. They understand the critical need America’s workers and businesses have for a tax system that will create jobs, spark economic growth, and let people keep more of what they earn. This is exactly what they accomplished by putting forth a plan that lowers individual and corporate tax rates, makes our tax code simpler, fairer, and less complicated, and creates incentives to keep jobs in America and bring trillions of dollars of assets back to our shores.
“CASE fully supports this framework and will work with lawmakers and other leaders to see it come to fruition, to finally bring an end to the current tax structure which punishes work, savings and investment, while making America less competitive in the global economy. The President’s plan will spark our economy and lead to a better standard of living for all Americans while helping U.S. businesses thrive and compete on a more level playing field overseas. America’s middle-class deserves a pay raise, and our businesses and job creators need relief from a brutal and punishing tax code. By moving forward on the framework put forward today, we can achieve greater prosperity for our economy and for all Americans, while creating more jobs and letting taxpayers keep more of what they earn.”
