‘We’re On the Cusp of a Historic Moment,’ says Donohue

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue today issued the following statement after the House voted to pass the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:”

“We applaud each of the representatives who voted today for pro-growth reform that grows the economy and improves the lives of America’s families, workers, and job creators. Our country is on the cusp of a historic moment, one we haven’t seen in 31 years. Now, we look to the Senate to quickly pass this important legislation and deliver the competitive tax code Americans have been waiting for. As we all know, failure is not an option.”

The Chamber has judged any tax reform package on whether it improves economic growth; its principles for pro-growth tax reform can be viewed here.
