Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Conference Report.
"The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will provide a much needed tax break for hardworking Americans for the first time in 31 years," said Palmer. "Our tax plan not only puts more money in the pockets of the American people, but will also launch economic growth. Over the previous eight years our economy only grew at an anemic 1.8 percent per year because businesses were shackled by a complicated and burdensome tax code that was designed for a 1986 economy. The tax reform bill the House just passed removes the shackles and brings our tax code up to date with today's economy and with American families and workers. I look forward to the Senate favorably voting on the tax bill so we can give the American people a Christmas gift that will keep on giving."
