Manufacturers were pleased to see a Congressman with first-hand experience actually running a company weigh in on the critical need for progrowth tax reform and the certainty that goes with it. In an op-ed in The Hill, Rep. Reid Ribble from Wisconsin drew on his experience owning a roofing company to make a strong argument for a simpler, fairer tax code, particularly for the many small businesses that pay taxes at individual rates.
Rep. Ribble fully recognizes the importance businesses place on certainty in moving ahead on investment and hiring plans. Manufacturers couldn’t agree more with Rep. Ribble that “the more important and necessary outcome of comprehensive tax reform is certainty. When businesses have certainty they have confidence, which will boost economic activity and spur job creation. Let’s hope that after November there are more Rep. Ribbles in Congress.
