North Cook County taxpayers praise GOP tax reform
Several north Cook County taxpayers recently praised the GOP’s proposed tax reforms in a press release from Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL).
“What’s most important to me is that I’m able to keep more of the money I make to care for my twin daughters," Kevin Cavanaugh, of Palatine, said. "Congressman Roskam is a family man and he gets that. I am confident that his work on this tax bill will accomplish that.”
Mark Mirsky, of Bartlett, also expressed his excitement about the tax reforms.
"There's a lot to be excited about in H.R. 1," Mirsky said. "Hardworking taxpayers are being punished by our current tax code and this bill rewards hard work by putting more money back into your paycheck."
Other area residents also talked about their hopes for this tax reform.
“Lowering taxes is so important to everyone," Gene Dawson, of Barrington, said. "I'm retired and the savings we'll see from this tax plan will really help to offset the increasing costs of living in Illinois and help us all save more.”
"Rep. Roskam understands we need to save money on our tax bills to care for our families," Aneta Pilasiewicz, of Bartlett, said. "That's why I'm happy to see him working to get this plan passed and fighting for the middle class."
Roskam, who is the chairman of the Tax Policy Subcommittee, believes this tax reform will have positive results for the middle class.
“Today we took the most significant step on real tax reform than we’ve taken in over 30 years,” Roskam said. “Americans are yearning to see real tax relief and the work we’ve done on this bill respects and rewards hardworking, middle-class families in my district and across the country and allows us to grow a healthy economy and more jobs.”
