GOP Rep. Black: Tax Reform Is a 'Big Christmas Present' for the American People
Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) is confident that the Senate will pass the Republican tax bill, and President Trump will be able to sign it into law and give the American people a "big Christmas present."
"We're going to pass a monumental tax reform for the American people," Black, who sits on the House Budget Committee and House Ways and Means Committee, said on "Outnumbered Overtime."
She said that some Democratic lawmakers and some in the mainstream media are resorting to hyperbole when discussing the tax bill, and she encourages people to look at how it will provide tax relief to the middle class and small businesses.
"The American people are going to be the ones to be the judge at the end of the day," Black said. "The proof is in the pudding, and the pudding will be this upcoming year when we see the economy growing and more money in people's pockets."

She pointed out that tax cuts under President John F. Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan provided a boost to the economy, and they are confident that this tax bill will have a similarly positive effect.
"And we're excited about that, because the American people need our help and the economy needs our help to come out of the doldrums that we've been in for far too long," Black said.
