WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement lauding Senate passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Blunt voted in favor of the bill.
“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a major victory for hardworking Missourians,” Blunt said. “This bill will break us free from years of stagnation. We will provide a much-needed tax cut for middle-class families and jumpstart a new era of growth and opportunity. Together, this will mean more money in people’s pockets today, and more jobs with higher wages in the future. And, after years of watching jobs and capital go overseas, this plan will bring investment back to our communities where it belongs. We’re not just changing the tax code, we’re changing the trajectory of our economy and the future we hand to our kids and grandkids. The Senate took an important step toward providing real tax relief for Americans today, and we must continue working to get a bill to the president’s desk this year.”
