A Promise Kept: Speaker Ryan Talks ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’ during Leadership Presser

Summary: Today at a leadership press conference, Speaker Ryan discussed the historic nature of today’s vote on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Opening Statement: “First of all, I want to join Cathy in just saying how saddened we are by the terrible loss of life in DuPont, Washington. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the people who are injured. And our thanks go out to the first responders who are tending to this terrible accident in Washington. “Cathy also talked about how tax reform’s going to help people with disabilities. That kind of gets to the heart of what this is all about. This is about expanding opportunity to people who are striving to make the most of their lives. “The reason we’re here doing this is because we want people to reach their potential. And we know in this country we’re not reaching our potential. And we know one of the greatest things we can do to do that is pass this tax reform bill. “With this tax reform, families at every income level get a tax cut, but especially middle-income families. The typical family of four making the typical income of $73,000 will get a tax cut of $2,059. Let me repeat that: The typical family of four making the median family income gets a $2,059 tax cut next year. “This is real relief. This is real relief and people are going to see this in their paychecks before too long. “Look, you’ve all heard us say it, but this is very true. More than half the people in this country are living paycheck to paycheck. Almost another half are people who are telling us that they’re about one paycheck away from living paycheck-to-paycheck. There’s real economic anxiety in America. “But there’s so much potential for our people, for our country, for our economy. Small businesses, Main Street businesses—that’s where most of the jobs come from—they get real relief in addition to the families. Workers are going to get a more level playing field. That’s going to boost wages. That’s going to bring more jobs back home. “This is going to make such a positive difference in the lives of everyday working Americans from all walks of life. “Whether this is your first term or your tenth term, this is why we are here—and this is why I’m excited about this moment. We, in 2016, laid out and articulated a vision for what we think is necessary to get this country back on track. We spent all of our time together, in our majority, ‘Here’s what it’s going to take to get America back on its feet. Here’s what it’s going to take to help people who are struggling. Here’s what it’s going to take to get this economy out of the malaise it’s been in for a decade to get true growth, to hit our potential.’ And we’re doing it today. “This is the greatest example of a promise being made and a promise being kept. It’s been a long, long time. It’s an honor to be speaker of the House to see this. “The last time this got done, the job I had? I was working the quarter pounder grill at McDonald’s at the intersection of Highway 14 and I-90 in Janesville, Wisconsin. It’s a long time in coming. “And that’s why we’re so excited to see this happen. Because we know this is going to help people. We know this is going to grow our economy. And we know it’s going to, most of all, help the people who are struggling in this country. That’s why we’re very, very excited about this historic day. “We could not be more optimistic about this moment, and what it means for the future of our great country.”
