Tax Law Allows You to Keep More of What You Earn

LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Fitzpatrick released the following statement regarding the Treasury Department’s recent release of new withholding tables in conjunction with the new tax reform law:

“Tax reform was always about growing our economy and increasing take-home pay for hardworking Americans. In the weeks since being signed into law, we’ve already seen over $1.5T in economic investment by companies and, as early as next month, folks will see more of their hard-earned money in their paychecks.”

Op-Ed: More jobs, fairer taxes, bigger paychecks

When Washington politicians talk about the tax code, it’s easy to get bogged down in numbers. But tax reform isn’t about percentage points or pie charts — it’s about people.

It’s about farmers in Franconia who want their family farm to be successful and operational when their children are grown. It’s about moms in Middletown who are trying to make ends meet while saving for life’s special moments. And it’s about the small business owners in Sellersville who want to continue to serve their community and support their employees, but are restricted by red tape and compliance costs.

Ahead of Veterans Day, Fitzpatrick & Sinema Fight for Veterans Jobs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representatives Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) has introduced legislation ahead of Veterans Day to ensure veterans play a critical role in rebuilding America’s infrastructure. The Fairness to Veterans for Infrastructure Investment Act [H.R. 4319] levels the playing field in federal contracting for veteran-owned businesses by providing veterans access to existing preferences authorized for transportation projects.

OP-ED: The formula for ‘An America that Works’

Several economic indicators show us that our economy is growing. Unemployment is down, the stock market up, consumer confidence is at its highest level in over a decade, and businesses are starting to invest in their future again.

This is crucial. The fact is, the 1.6 percent GDP growth we’ve experienced over the past several years is simply unsustainable. If that trend continued, we would not be able to fund priorities such as bolstering our national security, taking care of our veterans or combatting the opioid epidemic.
