Senator David Perdue Discusses Historic Tax Cuts On CNBC 

“The person who is going to benefit the most in this tax plan is the person that gets a job”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Joe Kernen, Becky Quick, and Andrew Sorkin on CNBC’s Squawk Box about the historic action the U.S. Senate has taken to fix the tax code, help middle-class families, and make America more competitive again.

Historic Opportunity: “It’s a historic day in Washington. People are expecting us to get tax done, and I think we will.”

Simplifying The Code: “This is a simplification. Only 30% of taxpayers today itemize, and that’s projected to go down to 10%. To say it another way, 90% of all taxpayers will use the standard deduction, which was doubled in this plan. This is by any definition simplification.”

Growing Optimism: “Getting our corporate rate to be competitive with the rest of the world is the best thing we can do for the American worker, and I think that’s what you’re seeing in some of these optimism numbers now.”

Relief For The Middle Class: “This is indeed a tax cut for the middle class. A family of four, who make the median income of $73,000, are going to get a 60% tax cut. A single mom, with one child, making $41,000 is going to get a 75% tax cut.”

Making America Competitive: “Our focus here is to get competitive again, and the person who is going to benefit the most in this tax plan, is the person that gets a job.”
