Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on President’s Tax Reform Proposal

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement after the Trump Administration released an outline for tax reform on Wednesday:

“Traveling around the Eighth District over the past two weeks, I consistently heard from Hoosier families and job creators about their frustration with a broken and burdensome tax code.  And as Tax Day came and went earlier this month, we were all starkly reminded that the current system is just too complicated and too complex.  By just about every measure, it’s clear that the tax code needs significant overhaul,” said Bucshon.  “Over the past eight years the U.S. economy hasn’t grown at its full potential, which has translated to fewer jobs and less take-home pay for families. Implementing fundamental tax reform – a simpler, fairer tax code that gets rates down for everyone – is absolutely necessary to get the economy firing on all cylinders. That’s why I am encouraged to see President Trump set broad goals for tax reform today that builds on the Better Way initiative House Republicans released last year. President Trump’s proposal will help provide a guide for Congress and the White House to work together to achieve much-need tax reform to grow the economy, create jobs, and provide more certainty for families.”
