FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon released the following statement regarding the Jobs and Tax Act, which passed in the House of Representatives today:
"This is a crucial step in simplifying our tax code to make it easier to understand and follow, while making it less burdensome on Americans. FreedomWorks activists support fundamental tax reform. We urge the Senate to continue this pace to pass a pro-growth tax bill and send it to the president’s desk for signature by the end of the year.
"Repealing ObamaCare’s individual mandate is important for the financial requirements of reconciliation. This move will give them some credibility that they are still planning to repeal ObamaCare as they have promised for the better part of a decade. We also hope that the House and Senate, when they finally enter into a conference committee, will ensure that business owners who individual tax returns are seeing tax relief and that every American sees a tax cut."
