Today, the House Committee on Ways and Means released their latest #TaxReformTuesday video, a weekly video series highlighting committee members’ commitment and motivations for tax reform. This week, Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) shares his commitment to tax reform and how the pro-growth GOP proposal will flatten the base and lower tax rates for both individuals and small businesses.

“Greetings from South Florida. I'm Carlos Curbelo and I represent this community in Congress.

“We House Republicans are starting our work on tax reform and tax reform is about people. We want to build a simpler, flatter, and more fair tax code, so that people like these behind me can dedicate more time to their families and can have more resources to get ahead instead of just getting by. So that small business owners like the family who came from Cuba decades ago and struggled to build this wonderful restaurant can invest more in the community, provide better jobs, and pay their employees more.

“That's what tax reform is all about and that’s why we House Republicans are 100 percent committed to making sure we build the kind of tax code that the American people deserve. One that will lead to amore prosperous future for every family.”

“Los republicanos de la cámara estamos trabajando para reformar el código tributario de los Estados Unidos, y durante todo este proceso he estado pensando en las familias y los pequeños empresarios del sur de la Florida.

“Sí logramos una reforma tributaria quiere decir que cada persona tendrá más recursos para el bien de su familia, y que pequeñas empresas tendrán más recursos para invertir en sus operaciones, expandirlas, y pagarles más a sus empleados.

“Además, sabemos que hay gran frustración con nuestra economía porque la recuperación no ha llegado a todos los hogares, hay muchos jóvenes a través del país que se han graduado de nuestras escuelas y universidades y, sin embargo, no pueden encontrar buenos empleos.

“Si reducimos y simplificamos los impuestos, crearemos más oportunidades para todos, más prosperidad, un mejor futuro para nuestra comunidad y para todo el país.”
