(Washington, D.C.) – Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), along with more than 40 other taxpayer organizations, sent a letter to members of the House of Representatives, supporting the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a bill that is “a victory for the middle class,” and will allow all Americans to keep more of their own money.

The letter reads: 

“Today, you stand on the verge of making history, achieving that which has eluded lawmakers for decades: transforming the U.S. tax code and providing real tax relief to America's working families and job creators. At a time when nearly half of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, we cannot afford distraction or delay. It is time to push forward for pro-growth tax reform that will strengthen the U.S. economy, accelerate job creation, and raise take-home pay for the middle class.

“The tax reform bill currently being considered by the House Committee on Ways and Means is a reflection of our nation's commitment to achieving greater financial security and peace of mind for those willing to take chances and work hard. Its provisions are a victory for the middle class, providing new tax relief, enabling more families to save and invest for the future, and creating an economy more conducive to prosperity for middle-class workers.

“We applaud Congress for its important work so far, and for the effort that will come in the days ahead. We ask you to preserve the bill's value for middle-class workers and job creators, and to pass legislation that will unleash our dynamic, world-class economy and workforce. The American people are counting on you, and we are standing behind you. We urge you to listen to the voices of America's working families and job creators, and pass the tax reform we need.”

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste is the lobbying arm of Citizens Against Government Waste, the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
