Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Joe Wilson today released the following statement after House passage of the “Tax Cuts &  Jobs Act:”

“It’s been more than a generation since Congress passed meaningful tax reform. After months of talking about tax cuts this year, the American people wanted to see members of Congress take action. That’s exactly what Republicans have done. The ‘Tax Cuts & Jobs Act’ makes the tax code simpler and fairer, allows hardworking taxpayers to keep more of the money they earn and gives small businesses more room to grow and create jobs.  When taxes are low, businesses thrive, and jobs are created in the Reagan tradition. I am grateful for the leadership of Speaker Ryan and House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, and I look forward to working with them, in addition to President Donald Trump, on delivering meaningful tax relief to the American people. They deserve it.”
