McHenry on House Passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Today the House has taken a crucial step towards fulfilling our commitment to provide the American people with the tax relief they need. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a vitally important bill that helps average families and small business throughout the country. 

“This bill helps families by simplifying the tax code and allowing them to keep more of their hard-earned money—nearly $2,400 for the typical middle class family in western North Carolina. It helps small businesses by lowering their rates making it easier for them to grow and create jobs. It helps American businesses by making them more competitive globally and enabling them to keep more jobs here in the United States.

“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is the result of three years of hard work by the House. It is a conservative, pro-growth plan that will stimulate job creation and be a win for all Americans. I’m proud to support it’s passage and look forward to continuing our work with President Trump to get this bill signed into law.”
