Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) made the following statement regarding House Republican efforts to reform our broken tax code in order to unleash economic growth and job creation:
“As the Speaker and Leader emphasized, our goal is to make life work better. One of those roles will be through tax reform. Now, if you look at a recent survey by The Washington Post and ABC News, only 39% of Americans have a favorable view of the tax code. Who can blame them? It is confusing and it is built on a structure that holds back growth for America and holds back job creation.
“As many of you read today, Dave Camp, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, will start holding listening sessions inside in the Whip Office so that we start to build towards unshackling what holds us back, and to continue to build growth for America.”
