Gubernatorial hopeful Rep. Diane Black’s (R-TN-06) ‘day job’ as the House Budget Committee Chair has put her in the center of President Trump’s successful bid to pass meaningful tax reform for the first time in more than 30 years.
Black appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered Tuesday to cheer the effort, releasing this statement:
Diane Black joined Harris Faulkner on Fox News yesterday to talk about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which lowers taxes for job creators and American families across all income levels.
“We’re going to pass a monumental tax reform for the American people…The American people are going to be the ones to be the judge at the end of the day. The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding will be this upcoming year when we see the economy growing and more money in people’s pockets.”
Fox News Insider also covered Representative Black appearance on the popular afternoon news show:
Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) is confident that the Senate will pass the Republican tax bill, and President Trump will be able to sign it into law and give the American people a “big Christmas present.”
“We’re going to pass a monumental tax reform for the American people,” Black, who sits on the House Budget Committee and House Ways and Means Committee, said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”
She said that some Democratic lawmakers and some in the mainstream media are resorting to hyperbole when discussing the tax bill, and she encourages people to look at how it will provide tax relief to the middle class and small businesses.
“The American people are going to be the ones to be the judge at the end of the day,” Black said. “The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding will be this upcoming year when we see the economy growing and more money in people’s pockets.”
