Barr Applauds Release of Tax Reform Framework

A simplified and fairer tax code with lower rates will boost economic growth, support American jobs, and let Kentuckians keep more of their paychecks.

September 27, 2017

Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) made the following statement applauding the release of a unified framework for tax reform:

“The unified framework for tax reform released today is consistent with our promise to create a fairer, simpler tax code that will boost American jobs and allow working families and individuals to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks.  By doubling the standard deduction, enhancing the child tax credit, and promoting American competitiveness to keep jobs from going overseas, this plan is focused on the middle-income families that need relief.”

“While many important details have yet to be finalized, this framework is a great starting point as we deliver on this important promise that will benefit all hardworking taxpayers.  I applaud the diligent work of Chairman Kevin Brady and the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, and the Trump Administration in developing this unified plan that reflects the goals and input of our entire conference.  I look forward to working with my colleagues as this plan moves through the legislative process to achieve higher growth, bigger paychecks and a fairer, simpler tax code.”
