Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on the "Unified Framework For Fixing Our Broken Tax Code" released today by Congressional Republicans and the White House:
"I see this as an amazing opportunity and responsibility. Enacting legislation consistent with this framework will allow us to achieve the growth that we've been waiting so long to achieve."
"There's nothing normal about two percent growth for the United States of America. We're capable of so much more. When we get this right, I am confident that we will achieve robust growth. What that means for the hardworking families that I represent all across Pennsylvania is a direct pay raise when we lower their direct tax burden. It also means an indirect pay raise as more jobs are created and more businesses are launched. Upward pressure on wages allows people to have a higher standard of living."
"I am really excited about this opportunity and I am confident that we are going to seize the moment."
