A press release from Congressman Peter Roskam:

Rep. Roskam casts vote to end the status quo

DuPage County, IL – Today, the House of Representatives voted to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1), 227-205. Representative Peter Roskam (IL-06), who voted in favor of H.R. 1, also serves as the Chairman of the Tax Policy Subcommittee on Ways and Means and has taken a leadership role in crafting this legislation. Rep. Roskam released the following statement:

Peter Roskam

“Today we took a transformative step to putting an end to the status quo. The status quo benefits the few, it benefits the privileged, and it benefits those at the top of the economic ladder. Today the House voted to reject the old way of doing things and support the most significant tax overhaul in over 30 years that will help hardworking families and small businesses around the country.

“This bill is about the businesses on Main Street and the family at the end of the block. It’s about the recent college graduate struggling under the weight of student loans and the newlyweds expecting their first child. We’re boosting the economy to create more good-paying jobs, and we’re making sure that taxpayers get to keep more of their money in every pay check.

“I’m proud of the work that we’ve done and will continue to do on this legislation. The end result will be a law that works for an overwhelming number of Americans and boosts our economy to allow us to be more competitive on the world stage.”

  1. Dear peter roskam: Can you hear the clock ticking? Lean forward…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  2. That clock’s ticking and the evil voices are all in your head, Llavona.

  3. Since 2008, Roskam has defeated his Democrat opponents by substantial margins in the November elections. Roskam will win again in the next election. The Democrats have fielded lousy candidates for many years and have continued to do so as evidenced by the loss of their TOP person, the corrupt Hillary, in Nov 2016.

  4. Who recently has been indicted by a grand jury in federal politics, with more coming down the line?
    Not Hillary!

  5. Hillary’s closet of skeletons would be about the size of Al Gore’s mansion in CA.

    A combination of highly misinformed voters (brainwashed by the corrupt left leaning main stream media), dyed-in-the-wool Democrat-only voters and stupid people voted for Hillary in Nov 2016.
