U.S. Rep. Terri A. Sewell, D-Selma, was sharply critical of the Republican tax reform package in a recent email to constituents.

“This month, Congress is considering passage of a tax bill that cuts taxes for special interests and the wealthy while eliminating provisions that middle-class families rely on to afford medical expenses, education, their mortgage, and more,” Sewell said. “I fought to fix the tax bill when it came before the Ways and Means Committee, and now I’m fighting to fix it before it passes Congress.”

Thursday, the U.S. House Republican caucus unveiled The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which they claim will fundamentally reform the tax code for the first time since 1986.

U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose, issued a statement in response to the introduction.

“Tax reform has the potential to make America boom again, and it starts with putting more money in the pockets of hardworking Americans,” Byrne said. “The current tax code is too complicated and confusing, benefiting the elite while making things harder for American families. It is time for a fairer and simpler tax code that supports new jobs right here in the United States. This is going to be a process, and the bill released today is just a starting point. I encourage everyone to visit FairAndSimple.gop to read the plan and then welcome your feedback and ideas.”
