Burr Statement on President’s Plan to Reform Broken Tax Code

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr released the following statement regarding President Trump’s speech today in Springfield, Missouri.

“I’m pleased by the President’s first steps forward in reforming our broken tax code. Americans have suffered for far too long under an increasingly complicated and burdensome system that suppresses growth and takes money out of the pockets of hard-working families. I have advocated for years in Congress for simplifying our tax code, lowering rates for everyone, and allowing individuals to save money and time filing their taxes. These commonsense solutions will allow our nation to again be the envy of the world when it comes to opportunity. I look forward to getting to work in the Finance Committee on the President’s proposals and finally bringing relief to the millions of Americans who desperately need it.”
