American Action Network Statement On Introduction of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

AAN pledges another $8 million in November, bringing total tax reform advocacy efforts to $22 million

WASHINGTON – American Action Network (@AAN) Executive Director Corry Bliss released the following statement following the introduction of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

“The tax bill introduced in the House today will provide relief for American families and small businesses with a simpler, fairer tax code. Meaningful tax reform means higher wages, more jobs, and a $1,200 tax cut for the average middle-class family. Congress must work together to swiftly pass this tax reform bill, and the American Action Network is committed to spend an additional $8 million supporting this legislation, bringing our total spending to over $22 million advocating for tax cuts for the middle class.”

American Action Network’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative (MCGI), was launched in August to advocate for the passage of meaningful tax reform legislation. The multi-pronged effort, now totaling $14 million, includes advertising on television, radio, direct mail, and mobile billboards in over 50 congressional districts nationwide. AAN has pledged to spend at least $22 million total in efforts to support the passage of tax reform.
