FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon made the following comments after the announcement of the framework for fundamental tax reform:
“Americans are fed up with the rigged economy. They see a current tax code that benefits politically connected special interests. The framework released today represents a transformation of America’s tax code and would help the middle class. It simplifies a complex system that taxpayers spend billions annually to comply with and will spur economic growth, allowing American businesses to increase wages and create more jobs.
“It’s time for the House and Senate to begin this effort by passing a budget resolution that allows committees to get to work on crafting legislation that reflects this pro-growth framework. There is no reason to wait any longer. We’re confident that the House and Senate have enough to get started. This is a generational moment. We need a tax code that promotes economic growth, fairness, and opportunity for all. We absolutely must get this done, and we must get it done this year.”
