Rep. Roger Williams: Pro-Growth Tax Reform Should Cut Taxes and Reject the BAT

Doug Sachtleben - April 27th, 2017

 “Rep. Williams’ message – cut taxes, cut spending, and reject the Border Adjustment Tax – should be echoed by every Republican in Congress.”

 

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to an interview Congressman Roger Williams gave to Bloomberg on the topic of tax reform:

“Congressman Williams has just given his colleagues in Congress the core principles of pro-growth tax reform: cut taxes, cut federal spending, and reject the Border Adjustment Tax,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “With the House of Representatives now framing the legislative language for historic tax reform, Rep. Williams’ message – don’t cut taxes, and then raise them by creating a BAT – should be echoed by every Republican in Congress. We hope Rep. Williams’ constituents will thank him for emphasizing the proven formula that cutting taxes leads to economic growth that will create more taxpayers.”

 

 

 

Club for Growth on Trump Tax Proposal: This is What Pro-Growth Tax Reform Looks Like

Doug Sachtleben - April 26th, 2017

“Cutting rates and eliminating deductions will put the U.S. squarely on the path of sustained economic growth.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to the tax reform principles outlined by the Trump Administration:

 

“The Trump Administration’s tax reform proposal is massively pro-growth,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Cutting rates and eliminating deductions will put the U.S. squarely on the path of sustained economic growth, and allowing small and mid-size businesses to use a new 15% business tax rate is crucial to that growth. This is the tax plan that the American people supported when they elected President Trump, so House Republicans would do well to give it their full support.”

Club for Growth Supports Meadows-MacArthur Amendment; Urges GOP to Move Forward

Doug Sachtleben - April 26th, 2017

“Their hard work, facilitated by Vice President Pence, has yielded a compromise that the Club for Growth can support.”

 

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement about the improvements that have been negotiated for the American Health Care Act (AHCA):

 

“A month ago we said ‘conservatives and moderates… should start by meeting together to see what common ground they have.’ Today, we believe the hard work of Rep. Mark Meadows (NC-11) and Rep. Tom MacArthur (NJ-03), facilitated by Vice President Mike Pence, has yielded a compromise that the Club for Growth can support,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Since the AHCA was released, conservatives have done the GOP an enormous favor by pushing for needed changes that will benefit taxpayers, including the immediate repeal of Obamacare’s taxes and block-granting of Medicaid funding to states. While we’re still short of full repeal, this latest agreement would give states the chance to opt out of some of Obamacare’s costliest regulations, opening the way to greater choice and lower insurance premiums. It’s a solution that we’ve supported for weeks, and the time to move forward is now. There’s still more work to be done on this bill in the Senate and on further health care reforms, but any GOP moderates who stand in the way at this point are proving that they simply don’t want to keep their campaign promises to get rid of Obamacare.”

Club for Growth Celebrates 100 Days of Pro-Growth Progress

Doug Sachtleben - April 26th, 2017

“President Trump has halted the economic destruction of the Obama years, and what would have been their extension by Hillary Clinton, and has restored confidence in the economy with strong and effective pro-growth policies.”

 

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement about the progress made by the Trump Administration on pro-growth policies as the administration nears the 100-day mark:

 

“Imagine the economic devastation we’d be talking about today if Hillary Clinton had been elected: Higher taxes, more job-crushing government regulations, an expansion of government-run health care, and massive government overreach into the private sector,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “In less than 100 days, President Trump and his administration have not only prevented that nightmare, but they have halted the economic destruction caused by eight years of Obama Administration policies, and have restored consumer and business confidence with strong and effective pro-growth policies (see below). The result of these policies has been a 15% gain in the stock market, which has added at least $2 trillion of wealth to all Americans in their retirement funds and savings.”

 

  • The President’s anticipated tax reform proposal will include the most pro-growth tax cuts in a generation.
  • The Administration has worked relentlessly for an Obamacare repeal deal.
  • President Trump has signed 13 Congressional Review Act (CRA) measures, erasing unnecessary and costly federal regulations.
  • The President has issued crucial Executive Orders that are crushing Washington’s oppressive regulatory state in a way that will put billions of dollars back into the economy.
  • The confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court bodes well for protecting individual rights and limiting the federal government.
  • The President has appointed the most conservative Cabinet to execute his administration’s policies.
