US Sen. Tim Scott (R, SC) posted a video early Wednesday morning after the Senate passed the tax overhaul bill, which he said would help the average American family see about a 60 percent tax cut.
The bill features tax cuts totaling nearly $1.5 trillion over the next decade and would take effect in January. Workers will start to see changes in the amount of taxes withheld from their paychecks in February.
But today he got choked up during a speech about the benefits of tax reform Wednesday, completely stealing the show at what was already a celebratory affair for Republicans and the administration.
The South Carolina senator discussed how Republicans are bringing tax relief to single-mothers, middle-class Americans and will ultimately help many achieve the “American Dream.”
“Well, Mr. President, during one of those conversations that we had where we talked about ways to improve distressed communities throughout this country,” Scott said.
“52 million persons living in distressed communities, and we talked about legislation that could move those communities said yes. And, as part of this tax reform package, the investing and opportunity act has been included, which will bring trillions of dollars into poor communities because of your willingness to listen.”
Let me say to those Americans who are watching this process, this is not about Washington. It’s not about the left. It’s not about the right. It’s about single parent mom’s who are looking for a reason to be hopeful in 2018,” Scott said.
“This tax reform plan delivers for the average single mother a 70 percent tax cut. For the average family who is working paycheck to paycheck, looking for ways to be hopeful about their future to have an extra night for dinner out at a restaurant, this tax reform package cuts their taxes by nearly 60 percent,” Scott explained.
“And because of folks like Marco Rubio and Ivanka Trump, when you think about kids in the house, this doubles the child tax credit and makes about 70% of this refundable.”
“This is a plan we can be proud of because it speaks to the hearts of everyday Americans,” Scott concluded.
I love Sen. Scott. He was raised in a single parent household in a poverty-ridden area so he speaks with the first-hand experience.
