For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON Congresswoman Ann Wagner (MO-02) released the following statement after passage of H.R.1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“In 2012, the people of Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District sent me to Congress, and I promised them that I would find a way for families to keep more of their hard-earned money. Today, we are delivering on that promise and no media hyperbole or partisan backlash will change the bottom line. This bill cuts taxes for middle income Missourians, allows American businesses to flourish, and paves the way for an increase of good-paying jobs,” said Congresswoman Ann Wagner.
“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is pro-family tax reform that expands the Child Tax Credit, doubles the standard deduction, lowers individual rates, and preserves the adoption tax credit and retirement savings options I fought hard to keep. Most importantly—after 30 years of a ballooning tax code—this historic tax reform sets the stage for American families and our economy to prosper.”
