Gianforte recently talked with hardworking Montanans throughout the state during his two-week Tax Cuts and Jobs Tour. Gianforte met with workers who are seeing larger paychecks and expanded benefits. He also visited with small business owners who are seeing their bottom lines grow, giving employees raises, and investing in their businesses.
Gianforte voted in December for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the first reform of the federal tax code in more than 30 years. The new tax law cuts rates for taxpayers at every income level, expands the standard deduction, doubles the child tax credit, and provides needed relief to Montana’s small businesses.
Gianforte’s remarks as prepared:
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to let my colleagues know that the tax cuts are working in Montana.
For the last two weeks, I met with hardworking Montanans who are benefiting from the tax cuts.
Owners of Billings Flying Service are investing in new equipment as well as more research and development.
Workers at a UPS facility in Missoula are receiving expanded benefits and more money in their paychecks.
An owner of KFC restaurants throughout Montana gave employees a raise, boosted starting wages, and plans renovations to many locations.
Owners of Loenbro in Great Falls are increasing benefits and investing in new equipment.
A farmer near Bozeman plans to double his food processing staff from six to 12.
Mr. Speaker, the tax cuts are working in Montana and throughout the country. They’re leading to job creation, bigger paychecks, greater investment, higher wages, and economic growth.
We must remain focused on policies to encourage growth, optimism, and the American dream.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I yield back.
