ATR president Grover Norquist praised the Conference Report for Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as follows:

“In December 1975 Saturday Night Live unveiled “Shimmer” which was a floor wax AND a dessert topping. [See the video here]

“Today in December 2017 Republicans will enact the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The bill is a floor wax and a delicious dessert topping: it will create millions of American jobs AND simplify and lower taxes on Americans.

“It reduces taxes on American corporations AND small businesses.

“It simplifies the tax code so most Americans can file on a postcard AND offers tax relief for Americans at every income level.

“It will increase take-home pay AND grow the economy.

“It will end the Obamacare mandate tax paid by millions of Americans -- 80% of whom earn less than $50,000 -- AND it will free up oil in Alaska.”
