Washington, DC – Today, U.S. House Republicans published their agenda for the Tax Reform Tax Force, which outlines a blueprint for a simpler, fairer, flatter, pro-growth tax code. Over the past several months, Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) worked closely with his colleagues on the Ways and Means Committee and Speaker Paul D. Ryan to put together a plan that addresses some of the leading economic concerns among American families and businesses. Rep. Reichert made the following statement after the Task Force was made public:

“This is the first step toward a modern day tax code that puts Americans first by making it simple and fair for families who need to take home more of their hard-earned money and deserve a government and IRS that is working for them,” said Rep. Reichert.  “The plan takes bold steps to allow our businesses large and small to compete and succeed in the global economy.  American companies with American workers leading the way in the global market and selling our products around the world is exactly what our economy needs to grow and create even more jobs here at home. Today, we’re starting down the path toward achieving that goal.”   

The Tax Reform Tax Force is one of six platforms House Republicans have worked on to outline their vision for a stronger, more confident America. The entire agenda, called A Better Way, can be found at better.gop.
