Larson: We Need to Work Together on Tax Reform
Washington, D.C. – Today, the Ways and Means Committee met for the first time as a full committee on the GOP tax reform blueprint. Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after the hearing:
“Tax reform needs to be a bipartisan process, we need to work together and find common ground for the American people and for our small businesses. It has been a year since the GOP released their blueprint, but today was the first full committee hearing on that blueprint. I’d urge the Committee to hold further public hearings on how tax reform will benefit middle-class and working families. We do not want to return to the days of the Battle at Gucci Gulch, we need this Committee to be about the vitality of ideas. Only when the details come out will we know who the true winners and losers are. The businesses that testified today said that they too would push for a real bipartisan process. I hope my colleagues across the aisle will work with us to pave the best path forward for the American people,” said Larson.
