Rep. Brat on the benefits of tax reform.
“In my own 7th Congressional District, the owners of Landscape Supply, a small, family-owned business, told me that they were able to hire five more full-time employees and also offer their workers bonuses. Patrick, the CEO, credits this expansion and added compensation to the Republican tax reform bill.
This same story is repeated throughout the 7th District—and across the country.
More than 500 companies across the country are reportedly using their tax cut savings to give their employees higher pay, including some of Virginia’s biggest employers such as CarMax, Altria, Walmart, Lowe’s, Home Depot and AT&T.
Yet Democrats like Nancy Pelosi—who called the higher compensation “crumbs”—continue to push a narrative that these tax cuts won’t help businesses and individuals.
Let’s not forget that Pelosi herself praised an Obama-era bill that gave workers a $40 tax cut.”
