The sweeping tax bill is now one step closer to becoming law after GOP leaders sign off on the legislation.
Lawmakers from the House and Senate gathered for a press conference Thursday in D.C. to celebrate Wednesday’s passage of the new tax bill.
They spoke about the benefits it will have for the American people, especially the middle class.
They said the tax plan will have a positive impact on the economy as well as families and businesses.
House Speaker Paul Ryan laid out the importance of overhauling the tax code.
“When we’ve been working on this issue for so many years we can see on the horizon this great potential for our people and for our economy, said Speaker Ryan. “We know this is the greatest country on earth and we know that America has better days ahead…and we know that America has so much more potential to tap, this bill taps that potential.”
Ryan went on to say lawmakers’ jobs are to try and improve the lives of the people they represent and this bill helps do that.
President Trump is expected to sign the bill during the Christmas break.
