American Action Network Praises House Passage of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Senate must quickly act to send legislation to President’s desk

WASHINGTON – Following the House’s passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, American Action Network (@AAN) Executive Director Corry Bliss issued the following statement on the historic tax reform legislation:

“Thanks to Speaker Ryan’s unwavering commitment and leadership, House Republicans have delivered on their promise to the American people with the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This historic tax legislation will allow hard-working individuals to keep more of their paychecks while helping families by preserving and expanding necessary tax provisions. Meaningful tax reform is about to become a reality, and most importantly, give middle-class families an average tax cut of $2,000. AAN commends House leadership’s tireless work on this legislation, and urges the Senate to quickly support this bill so President Trump can sign it into law before Christmas.”

AAN has been the highest spending outside group in the effort to pass pro-growth tax reform, and launched the Middle-Class Growth Initiative in August to promote pro-growth tax reform passage. The multi-pronged effort, totaling over $24 million, has included advertising on television, radio, digital, direct mail, and mobile billboards in over 60 congressional districts across the country. In addition, AAN’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative spearheaded letters to Congress from over 40 outside groups, and held regular meetings aimed to unite conservatives and build momentum for meaningful reform.
