Sen. Cruz: Middle Class Families Deserve Permanent Tax Cuts

Invites Democrats to join bill to make historic tax cuts on individuals permanent

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduced a bill to ensure the historic tax cuts on individuals are permanent.

“These historic tax cuts are already benefiting our schoolteachers, firefighters, and truck drivers—people from all walks of life—by cutting rates for individual taxpayers in all brackets,” Sen. Cruz said. “By February, Americans in every tax bracket will see their taxes go down and their take home pay go up. In a nationally televised interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Senator Bernie Sanders agreed that the middle class tax cuts in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act were a ‘very good thing,’ adding, ‘That’s why we should’ve made the tax breaks for the middle class permanent.’ Well, I invite Senator Sanders and all of my Democratic colleagues to join me today and make tax rate cuts for hardworking middle class families permanent.”
