Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) today joined President Donald Trump, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and local business owners for a tax reform roundtable at Bucky Dent Park in Hialeah. The roundtable highlighted the impact of tax reform since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was passed and signed into law in December. Local business owners shared their personal stories, discussing how they have been able to invest in their businesses and their employees since the law was enacted.
"Since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December, we have seen the positive impact tax reform has had on our economy. At 4.1%, the unemployment rate continues to drop as employers are able to create more jobs, expanding opportunities to more Americans. More than 4 million workers (and counting) are seeing wage increases, obtaining bonuses, and receiving other employee investments; companies small and large are passing on the benefits of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to their workforce. Lower taxes and a simplified tax code are also helping individuals and families, allowing them to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks.
"I was honored to welcome the President of the United States to Hialeah this afternoon to continue the conversation on tax reform and discuss the impact it has had thus far with local business owners. I look forward to continue working with the President, Vice President, and my congressional colleagues to provide more opportunities for American families across the country."
