Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
I support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed on December 20,2017. Many low and middle income Americans including many in the 13th District have already benefited financially. They have seen increased pay from their employers, lower tax with holdings, lowered tax rates, and increases in child tax credits. Many young job seekers in the district find their first employment at Walmart which increased the starting pay rate from $9.00 / hr to $11.00 /hr as a direct result of President Trump's Republican tax reform.
Incumbent Democrat David Scott voted against this bill despite the benefit to our community.
