WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement regarding the Senate Finance Committee’s ongoing work, and in anticipation of U.S. House passage of tax reform:
“I am determined to pass strong tax reform legislation to help American families keep more of their money, grow our economy and create jobs. Though I continue to support repealing the ACA’s individual mandate, I would have preferred not to add any dimension of healthcare to the tax reform debate, given that this will lessen the chances of having a bipartisan bill, making it less likely to last through future Congresses. My goal is to get a tax reform bill through the House and the Senate and deliver the reform the American people rightfully expect from us. This is a unique opportunity to increase freedom and liberty and promote the American Dream."
