For the first time in nearly a decade, the House and the Senate has passed a budget – albeit without much help from Democrats. The move sets the stage for a massive tax reform package, the largest since President Ronald Reagan’s overhaul in 1986.
President Trump took the opportunity to offer his thanks for a job well done this morning to Tennessee’s own Representative Diane Black (R-TN-06), who serves as the powerful House Budget Committee Chair.

To which, Ms. Black replied:

Representative Black – who is running to replace the termed-out Governor Bill Haslam – released a short statement reiterating her strong support of President Trump’s agenda, and her commitment to bringing the same kind of ‘America First’ principles to Tennessee, should she be elected.
This morning, President Trump praised Diane Black for her work on the budget and paving the way for tax cuts for all Americans.
Diane has been a strong supporter of President Trump’s agenda and yesterday Congress took the final step to start the tax reform process.
Tennessee needs the same type of leadership in Nashville that Donald Trump has brought to Washington and Diane Black is committed to bringing new ideas to the state capitol.
