Monroe News: Walberg pleased with tax cut passage, touts benefits
U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Tipton, who represents Monroe County, attended Wednesday’s bill passage ceremony at the White House.
He called H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the most sweeping overhaul of the tax code in more than 30 years, giving the typical family of four earning the median family income of $73,000 a tax cut of $2,059.
“In cities and towns throughout the 7th District, I’ve repeatedly heard the need for tax relief for hard-working families and small businesses who need a break. All along, I’ve fought for boosting their take-home pay and pocketbooks,” he said in a statement.
“Our bill delivers on the promise to provide real relief and a brighter future. It will help create more good-paying jobs, jumpstart our economy and encourage more investment in our communities,” Walberg said.
