Sen. Johnson here for the last post in the #SenJohnsonTakeover, with a day I’ll always remember. This was the day we signed #RightToTry into law. Here I am with Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, Matthew Bellina and the family of Trickett Wendler at the @whitehouse bill signing ceremony. Thank you @realdonaldtrump and those who championed this effort along with me, including Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick and Rep. Andy Biggs in the House and bipartisan supporters in the Senate. Thank you for taking this journey with me today. I know this law will save lives. ❤️ #SenJohnsonTakeover
WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today issued the following statement regarding the Commerce Department’s announcement that the economy grew at a rate of 4.1 percent in the second quarter of 2018.
“Our economy is thriving. Our strong economic growth is more evidence that Republicans’ pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda is working. Our labor force is growing as more Americans enter the workforce and search for jobs. Since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act became law, more than 1.2 million new jobs have been created, and nearly 4 million jobs have been created since President Trump was elected. Businesses are experiencing record optimism and are growing and investing in the wake of tax reform. The Republican-led Congress will continue to push for policies to help more Americans get ahead.”
“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act provides Americans with the relief they’ve been waiting for and ensures that America is ready to compete and win in the global marketplace.”
WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, member of the Finance Committee, and conferee on the conference committee tasked with negotiating a final tax reform bill, issued the following statement today regarding the Senate’s final passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
“This is a historic moment for our nation. For the first time since 1986, Congress has passed a comprehensive overhaul of the tax code. Our goal with this pro-growth tax reform package was to put more money in the pockets of hardworking Americans and create a tax code that fosters economic growth. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act achieves that goal. Next year, families across America will see their tax bills drop and take-home pay increase, and businesses will find it easier to grow their operations, hire new workers, and raise wages. This legislation brings America’s tax system into the 21st century — benefiting workers and our economy. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act provides Americans with the relief they’ve been waiting for and ensures that America is ready to compete and win in the global marketplace.”
