Wicker Votes for Budget Proposal, Clearing the Way for Tax Cuts for American Families

October 19, 2017

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today voted in favor of passing a budget proposal that lays the foundation for tax cuts for middle-class families and job creators. The Senate voted in favor of the measure by a vote of 51-49. It now awaits action by the House of Representatives.

 “Cutting taxes and reforming the tax code would mean growth for the economy, better income for American families, and take-home pay in their pockets,” Wicker said. “One report shows that lowering the corporate tax rate, for example, could boost average household incomes by $4,000. Passing this budget today was just the first hurdle among many to come. With President Trump’s leadership and a committed Republican majority in Congress, I am hopeful we can accomplish this once-in-a-generation achievement.”
