Burr Statement on Tax Reform: Time to Reform Our Broken Tax Code Is Now

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr released the following statement regarding the recently released tax reform framework:

“I’m very encouraged by the tax reform framework released today. With roughly half of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, the time to reform our broken tax code is now. We have a rare opportunity to bring relief to those who need it most by simplifying the code, unleashing the economy, promoting growth, and putting money back in the pockets of millions of North Carolinians and hardworking Americans. Today’s framework is an important step towards reaching these goals, and I look forward to working with Chairman Hatch and fellow members of the Senate Finance Committee as we use this framework to produce the vital legislation that our country needs.
