Tax Reform Delivers for Kansas
(WASHINGTON, D.C.)- Today we made history with the passage of the The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. The House of Representatives delivered on its promise to provide comprehensive tax reform for hard-working Americans.
Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., voted in support of the bill and offers his statement below:
“I believe Ronald Reagan would be proud of the work Congress has done on the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. The truth is we are not the same country that we were 31 years ago. It is time to modernize our tax code to meet the challenges that we face today.
I am proud to be a part of this historic solution that will provide relief for hard-working Kansans, families, and businesses.
The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act allows Americans to keep their hard-earned income and ends costly penalties placed on individuals that do not wish to purchase Obamacare. This legislation provides rate reductions for every income level and doubles the standard deduction, which more than 80 percent of our neighbors use.
I was sent to Washington, D.C. to fight for Kansas’ 1st Congressional District and make positive and lasting reforms. This legislation does just that. Under this tax bill, a family of four making the national median income of 70k will save more than $2,000. The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act also expands the Child Tax Credit from $1,000 per child to $2,000.
This bill is a culmination of multiple working drafts and months of collaboration with my colleagues, and I believe that it is an excellent step forward for Americans. I am proud of the final product, that prioritizes hard-working individuals, families and a healthier economy.”
