The graphic illustrates how the GOP tax plan will reduce the number of tax brackets from the current seven to four. Read the full article and analysis here.  Image credit: Washington Post Also, the Joint Committee on Taxation, a nonpartisan committee, sent a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady commenting on the changes made by H.R. 1 , the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, to the current tax code.

Burgess Praises Inclusion of Fiscal Responsibility Measure in NDAA
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement on the inclusion of his Audit the Pentagon amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which the House passed today. “Fiscal responsibility is a critical component of our national security.

This important measure will bring the Pentagon into compliance with current law, and ensu
Burgess Statement in Support of Tax Reform
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 1, The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. “While this tax reform package is not perfect, it is a positive step in the right direction. By doubling the standard deduction, expanding the Child Tax Credit, and reducing the number of tax brackets, this bill will allow taxpayers to keep more of their hard-earned money and save for the future. “Thirty-one years is far too long to wait to provide relief to hardworking American families, and now is the time to bring the tax code into the 21st century. This plan moves toward reforms that will simplify the tax code – saving taxpayers not just money, but also valuable time - and create more jobs and bigger paychecks for North Texans and Americans across the country.” ###
