Marchant Supports Historic Tax Relief for Families, Businesses in North Texas

“This is an historic opportunity to reject the status quo and provide real tax relief to the families, individuals and businesses in my district.

America’s tax code is broken – it is uncompetitive for American companies and it is unfair for American workers.”

Remarks as prepared for delivery:

“Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of HR 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

This is an historic opportunity to reject the status quo and provide real tax relief to the families, individuals and businesses in my district.

America’s tax code is broken – it is uncompetitive for American companies and it is unfair for American workers.

The American people deserve a tax code that works for them, not one that works for the special interests in Washington.

They deserve a tax code that rewards their lifetime of hard work, not one that squeezes their savings. And they deserve a tax code that prioritizes their goals, not one that penalizes success.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act creates a tax code that is focused on growth, fairness, and a booming economy for everyone.

The reforms in this bill, level the playing field for small businesses in North Texas, giving them the opportunity to grow and hire more people. And allow the hardworking taxpayers I represent to keep more of their paycheck and increase their family’s budget.

I’d like to thank the Chairman for allowing me to represent the views of my constituents throughout this process and I urge my colleagues to take advantage of this historic opportunity and vote in favor of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.”
