WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) released the following statement on the House Republicans’ Unified Framework for Fixing our Broken Tax Code:

“Today, with the help of the President, Congress has taken a huge step towards fixing our country’s broken tax code and bringing real reform to middle-class families, small businesses, and Mississippi’s family farms who cannot afford to keep the current system any longer,” said Harper. “This plan is aimed at delivering a simpler, fairer tax system that will create jobs, grow our economy, and deliver much-needed relief to the hardworking men and women who are hurting under the burdensome tax code.”

This framework will serve as a template for drafting the tax reform legislation that is expected to come to Congress this fall.
