AFP Key Vote: YES vote on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Dec 19, 2017 by AFP

Dear Senators:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, we urge a YES vote on H.R. 1, The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA). This bill will bring long-awaited and much-needed relief to hardworking Americans that have struggled under the current tax system.

We urge you to vote YES on The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

For American individuals and families, the TCJA will lower rates and double the standard deduction, meaning that people can keep more of their hard-earned money. Relief will come not only through direct rate cuts, but also through the increased wages and job opportunities that a growing economy will generate. Tax reform is essential for those individuals, families, and businesses that have been held back from realizing their American dream under the current system.

The TCJA will also provide relief to our businesses—allowing them to be competitive once again in the global marketplace. Our corporate tax rate, currently one of the highest in the world at 35 percent, would be lowered to 21 percent, encouraging businesses to invest, build, and produce here in the U.S. The bill also includes relief for small businesses, our vitally important job creators and growth generators.  Lowering the burdens on American businesses means more jobs and higher wages for American workers, who have been waiting on this kind of pay raise for far too long.

We urge you to vote YES on The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

Sincerely,

Chrissy Harbin

Vice President of External Affairs
