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

Nov 27, 2017 by AFP

Dear Senators:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I urge a YES vote on the Senate version of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This tax reform package will deliver a fairer, flatter, and simpler tax code that will lead to stronger economic growth, more job creation, and higher wages. Lawmakers should not miss this once-in-a-generation opportunity.

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

This comprehensive tax reform plan will bring tax relief to middle-class households and businesses across the country. Americans would see individual tax rates fall from the current rate of 22.5 percent to 22 percent; 25 percent to 24 percent; and 32.5 rate to 32 percent. They would also benefit from an expanded standard deduction and repealing the Alternative Minimum Tax. Businesses would see the corporate tax rate fall to 20 percent permanently as well as improvements in the structure of our punishing international tax system. Meanwhile, small businesses — the economy’s top job creators — would also see welcome tax relief.

Americans have suffered under an unfair, complex, and burdensome tax code which pits the least fortunate against the well-connected for far too long. It’s encouraging to see lawmakers follow through on their commitment to the American people to overhaul the tax code and make it work better for everyday Americans. This vote will inform our engagement on the grassroots level in lawmakers’ districts.

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

Sincerely,

Chrissy Harbin
