Dover, NH – Eddie Edwards, a Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, released the following statement in response to Congress passing the final version of tax cuts and tax reform:
"As I have said before, it is no secret that our country desperately needs tax reform and tax cuts. Despite Americans demanding it for years, our elected officials have largely ignored pleas from families and small businesses.
"Now that final legislation has passed through Congress, I commend Republicans in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate for sticking to their promises and delivering much-needed relief. While this legislation is not perfect, many of the positive aspects of the tax overhaul will go a long way towards boosting the American economy and creating jobs. This is specially true in the Granite State, where it is estimated that 89% of taxpayers will save under the new tax plan. If elected to Congress, I look forward to continuing to find additional ways to lower Granite Staters’ taxes and ensuring that they keep more of their hard-earned money."
