MAINE GOP CHAIR APPLAUDS MIDDLE CLASS TAX REFORM FRAMEWORK
AUGUSTA - Today, Maine Republican Party Chair Demi Kouzounas released the following statement praising the initial tax reform framework released by Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives:
"The framework laid out by the House would give Mainers bigger paychecks and spur further economic growth by providing relief to Maine small businesses. On top of today's great news that the national unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest level since 2000, this proposal would further speed along recovery from the Great Recession that was far too slow during the eight years of the Obama Administration.
We have a rare opportunity here. It is critical for Maine and the nation that Senator King and Representative Pingree put aside their partisanship and work with the President and congressional Republicans to pass a plan our economy and small businesses need."
