Arizonan Families Deserve a Healthy Economy and Bigger Paychecks

WASHINGTON, DC–U.S. Representative Martha McSally today released the following statement on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which passed the House with her support:

“Our 74,000-page tax code is costly, complex, and unfair. Special interests get special breaks and lobbyists get loopholes—but families get penalized. This is the once-in-a-generation opportunity for Washington to fix this broken tax code.

Our plan cuts taxes, rewards hard work, respects Arizonan’s time, and remembers whose money this really is. Under this plan a typical family of four in Arizona will keep an additional $1,182 each year, and a family of four making $55,000 won’t face any federal taxes at all. Parents raising kids will keep more of their pay, making childcare more affordable and allowing them to save for college and plan for retirement. Employers will be able to compete and win by spending less time and money on paying and filing taxes—and more time and money on growth, bigger wages, and new hires.

Arizonan families deserve a healthy economy and bigger paychecks—and that’s why I support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.”
