Jefferson City, MO – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) – Missouri today praised the House of Representatives for passing H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and called on the Senate to follow suit by passing its version of tax reform as soon as possible. AFP-Missouri has been leading a grassroots effort to get a tax reform bill to President Trump’s desk by year’s end.
“I can’t think of a better way to head into the holiday season knowing Missouri families will likely see tax relief in the near future,” said AFP-Missouri State Director Jeremy Cady. “This bill certainly lives up to its name as it will cut taxes and create millions of American jobs while ridding the tax code of special-interest carve outs, creating a fair system.” Cady continued, “Now it’s time for the Senate to act, and do so quickly. Our activists strongly encourage Sen. McCaskill to put aside the politics and support the Senate bill. Missourians are eager for the chance to keep more their hard-earned money and reap the benefits of a stronger economy. AFP-Missouri activists will hold accountable those Senators who stand in the way.”
