ACU Foundation Applauds Movement on Tax Reform, Presses Congress to Keep Promise of Sweeping Cuts

November 20, 2017

The Senate Finance Committee voted in favor of its tax bill, setting up a pivotal debate and floor vote that we hope will lead to passage of a bill that delivers a tax cut for all Americans. The important business of moving this process forward continues, and we know that at every step, from floor debate to naming members of a conference committee, big government tax-and-spend liberals will attempt to frame this as their political moment to chip away at our hard-earned majorities in the House and Senate. We must not allow them to succeed.

The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) applauds the leadership of Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (ACUF Lifetime Rating: 88%) as well as the efforts of the House under the leadership of Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (ACUF Lifetime Rating: 94%) to providing much-needed tax relief.

The ACUF continues to believe that every American should receive a tax cut, that overall effective rates should be reduced across the board, that taxes should never be raised retroactively, and that every effort should be made to encourage economic investment in the United States. We support the reversal of Obama-era economics that encouraged companies to conduct more business outside of our borders. Republicans in Congress are working with President Trump to rebuild a vibrant landscape of flourishing businesses across the nation and positioning the country to be a more competitive economic player across the globe.

Conservatives must continue to boldly proclaim our guiding beliefs when it comes to the tax code: we do not believe in class warfare; we do not believe that those who have achieved financial success should be punished by higher effective tax rates; we do believe that when the government steps aside from intervening in the affairs of American taxpayers, business owners, families, and individuals are able to achieve greater economic liberty and opportunity, while retaining more of their hard-earned money, and continuing to make decisions that result in a better society and a booming economy. This is our charge: to once and for all demonstrate that conservatives stand for the American Dream.
