Before 2017, the federal tax code had not received a major update since the 1980s. It was bleak, bland and burdensome. Thanks to the American voter, Washington finally passed real, comprehensive tax reform that benefits middle-class Americans. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has led to record-low unemployment in Wisconsin, including youth unemployment at a 52-year low nationwide, wage increases, salary bumps, increased benefits, larger paychecks and greater financial security for millions of individuals and small businesses. The less the government takes from its citizens, the more money Americans can use to provide for their families, save for the future and grow our economy.
