‘Our Democratic colleagues, since they bet against the American people and bet against the economy, now are determined to eliminate that tax cut and to condemn our economy and our workforce to slow growth and anemic wages. We think there’s a better way.’

 

Today at a press conference, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) highlighted a small business in Texas that has seen positive gains under the new tax code and discussed Democrats’ calls to repeal the recently passed tax cuts. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below.

 

“Recently I was in College Station where I met an owner of a small flooring company that said as a result of the savings from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, she was going to be able to hire additional employees, and invest in costly equipment, and get more orders from customers.”

 

“But if you needed a contrast between the positive, pro-growth message that we’ve been talking about in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and the reflexive opposition to anything and everything here in Washington, DC, it’s our Democratic colleagues.”

 

“Our Democratic colleagues, since they bet against the American people and bet against the economy, now are determined to eliminate that tax cut and to condemn our economy and our workforce to slow growth and anemic wages. We think there’s a better way.”
