Diaz-Balart Votes To Move Meaningful Tax Reform Forward
WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), a senior member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement after the House passed the fiscal year 2018 budget resolution.
“The FY18 budget provides a path to fiscal stability and prosperity for our country. This budget serves as a vehicle for meaningful tax reform, which will create a simplified tax code that empowers American families, encourages job growth, and revitalizes our economy. Within the last 10 months, we have seen economic growth and consumer confidence steadily climb, and House Republicans are committed to passing tax reform that will lead to continued growth. The budget also supports our troops and protects U.S. national security interests by providing our military with the robust resources it requires to defend our country.
“I thank Speaker Ryan and Chairman Black for their leadership on this issue, and I look forward to working with them and our colleagues to create a fair and simple tax code that strengthens our country.”
