Today, Americans for Tax Reform, along with 24 other conservative groups, released a letter to the Committee on Ways and Means in support of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” This pro-growth and pro-family Act will simplify the tax code, reduce taxes for families and businesses, and grow the economy, which will lead to higher wages and new or better jobs for Americans.

The document can be found here, and the full text of the letter is below.


25 Conservative Groups Support H.R. 1, The “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”

The Honorable Kevin Brady
Chairman, Committee on Ways and Means
1102 Longworth Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Chairman Brady:

We write in support of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” The release of this legislation marks an important step in passing comprehensive tax reform before the end of the year. We urge your committee to swiftly approve this bill and send it to the full House for consideration.

This tax bill is pro-growth and pro-family. While more work remains to be done, this legislation simplifies the code, reduces taxes for families and businesses, and grows the economy. This will lead to higher wages and new or better jobs.

Congress has a rare opportunity this year to reform the broken federal tax code. We stand ready to work with you as the Ways and Means Committee begins marking up the legislation next week.
