Event: Tax Reform for the middle class

I would like to invite you to join us tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Eastern for an event on tax reform for middle class Americans. Chairman Kevin Brady of the House Ways and Means Committee will be detailing how tax reform can help middle-class families and workers–the day after the new plan for tax cuts was revealed.

Brady will go on to discuss how he and the Committee – working together with President Trump and the House and Senate – are moving forward on transformational tax reform that will help middle-class Americans throughout their lives.  His remarks will focus on creating Main Street jobs, growing middle-class paychecks, making taxes fairer, and helping hardworking Americans – not Washington special interests.

If you can’t attend in person you can always join the livestream of the event online.

Will tax reform pass Congress this Fall?

Tax reform is one of the most important legislative priorities for Congress and the administration this fall. Good tax reform will unleash economic growth, creating greater opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.

This week, the communications team at Heritage released a video on the impact of tax reform on an average, middle-class American family.

Watch the video below:

Tax reform is a critical issue that is needed to give new life to our economy and put more money back in the pockets of the taxpayer.

Heritage has long advocated for a robust tax reform overhaul and will continue to show the need for major change on this issue.

Sound tax reform should achieve:

  • Lower individual and business tax rates
  • Establish the right tax base
  • Eliminate the bias against savings and investment
  • Eliminate tax preferences
  • Simplify the tax system and make it more transparent so taxpayers fully understand how much they pay to fund the federal government

Constitutional limits must be preserved

Enforcing the constitutional limits on our government is critical to defending liberty in this country.

For that purpose, Heritage’s Preserve the Constitution annual series seeks to restore the courts to their proper constitutional role and to enforce the constitutional limits on government.

From panel discussions to keynote addresses, this series features a variety of events aimed to provide clarity on the complex issues our Judiciary Branch faces.

The first event, A Constitution Day Address, was held yesterday and can be watched online.

Seven more events will take place over the next two months and you can watch them on our website. Take a look at the upcoming events in the series>>
