American Action Network Statement on Tax Conference Agreement
Congress on the verge of delivering historic, once-in-a-generation tax reform to the American people
WASHINGTON – Following the House and Senate’s announcement of a conference agreement on tax reform, American Action Network (@AAN) Executive Director Corry Bliss issued the following statement:
“House and Senate leadership should be commended for their work, and today’s progress, toward making meaningful tax reform a reality for working families across the country. Congress is on the verge of delivering historic, once-in-a-generation tax reform to the American people, and this is an opportunity that cannot be wasted. Right now, too many families are living paycheck-to-paycheck, struggling to make ends meet because of an archaic and unfair tax code. The plan presented by Congress today will expand economic opportunity for all Americans by unleashing more jobs, lower taxes and a fairer playing field for businesses. Now, it is up to the House and Senate to quickly bring the legislation forward for a vote, and send it to the President’s desk to become law before Christmas.”
AAN has been the highest spending outside group in the effort to pass meaningful tax reform, and launched the Middle-Class Growth Initiative in August to promote pro-growth tax reform passage. The multi-pronged effort, now totaling over $24 million, has included advertising on television, radio, digital, direct mail, and mobile billboards in over 60 congressional districts across the country.
