Congressman Williams: ‘6 Months of Tax Reform’
WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Roger Williams (R-Austin), released the following statement Wednesday, the 6-month anniversary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
“As a small business owner for my entire working life, I spent the past three terms in Congress fighting for tax cuts that would allow for Main Street to begin breathing again,” said Rep. Williams. “In the last six months since Republicans in Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it is evident that American families and businesses are feeling its impact on every street corner.
“Small business optimism is at an all-time high across Texas’ 25th District, and around the nation, due to employers increasing their workforce, reinvesting into their operations, and raising wages. As a result, over one million jobs have been created, which has brought unemployment down to 3.8 percent – the lowest in years.
“All of this is great, but we’re not done yet. I am continuing to work to strengthen the economy and make tax cuts permanent for families and workers. We will fight year after year to make America more competitive, and to keep our tax code simpler, flatter, and fairer. “
