Madison, WI – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin state director Eric Bott released the following statements on why Congress should vote yes on a once-in-a-generation opportunity to pass comprehensive tax reform. Throughout 2017, AFP-WI has been fighting to unrig the economy by encouraging President Trump and lawmakers in Washington to overhaul the tax code in a way that will provide economic relief to middle-income Wisconsinites. While many lawmakers support this once-in-a-generation opportunity to improve the lives of millions, some are still standing in the way.
Watch Eric Bott explain why tax reform is a good deal for Wisconsinites, and why Senator Baldwin should vote yes in the two videos below.
In September, Eric Bott and AFP leaders traveled to Washington to meet with lawmakers and amplify the voice of grassroots activists who support the vision for pro-growth tax reform outlined by the White House and Members of Congress. In just 48 hours, these grassroots leaders held more than 150 meetings with lawmakers asking them to support the bold tax framework. Bott also spoke at a press conference on Capitol Hill highlighting the impact of AFP’s permanent grassroots infrastructure and attended a briefing from Trump administration officials on the tax reform framework.
