Representative Carlos Curbelo: “My colleagues are right: this is quite an exciting opportunity. Of course because we get to reform the tax code of the United States of America, but more importantly because we have the opportunity to improve the lives of every single American in this country.

“Throughout this process, I’ve thought a lot about young people in our country, who perhaps have graduated from college with the promise that they would prosper and excel, and yet they’re struggling. I’ve thought a lot about immigrant families, many in my own community, who have come to this country with a willingness to work hard, seeking freedom and opportunity, yet, they’re not getting ahead.

“There is a lot of frustration and anxiety in our country because the economic recovery has not reached every single household, and this is the opportunity to change that. So, we really do have to deliver.

“Tenemos una gran oportunidad, como han dicho todos mis colegas, no solo de reformar el código tributario de Estados Unidos, si no también de mejorar la vida de cada persona, de cada familia que vive en este gran país.

“Durante todo este proceso, he pensado mucho en personas jóvenes en nuestro país que fueron a la Universidad buscando superarse y no pueden encontrar buenos empleos. También he pensado en muchas familias inmigrantes, como la mía, que han venido a este país en busqueda de la libertad y oportunidad, y sin embargo no lo han encontrado.

“La solución para toda esta frustración, ansiedad, incertidumbre, inseguridad que existe en este país es esta reforma. Y estoy muy complacido con la oportunidad de trabajar con todos mis colegas para que sea una realidad.”
