WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) spoke today on the Senate floor to urge her colleagues to vote for comprehensive pro-growth tax reform, emphasizing how the Senate bill will help working West Virginians and small businesses across the state.

“This bill will power economic growth and opportunity for American workers. It will lead to increased wages. It will help our small businesses compete, thrive and expand. And it will provide much needed tax relief for middle-class families in West Virginia and across the country,” Senator Capito said.

“We can accept the slow economic growth that has occurred over the past decade, or we can take big and bold action,” she continued. “To my colleagues: If you want to help the middle class benefit from tax cuts, higher wages and more job opportunities, then you should vote for this bill. If you want America to become more competitive in the global economy, then you should vote for this bill. If you want small businesses to expand and thrive, then you should vote for this bill.”
