Thornberry on Tax Reform

Tax reform bill will also put an end to the estate tax, something 13th District Congressman Mac Thornberry says is a plus.

However, a new poll shows 58 percent of respondents say it would benefit the wealthy.
18-percent believe it would be better for the middle class. Only 19-percent say it would benefit everyone equally.

"What a lot of people may not realize is that about half do not pay income taxes.  Among those who do, the top percentages pay by far the most.  So if you're going to have some sort of tax relief, of course, the people who pay taxes are going to see the most benefit of it." Rep. Mac thornberry R-TX 13th Congressional District:

Congressman Thornberry says the goal of the bill is to also not only let people keep more money they earn, but simplify the tax code.
