Daines, Tester comment on tax reform bill passage

Posted: Updated:

Montana U.S. senators John Tester (D-MT) and Steve Daines (R-MT) took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the tax reform.

Sen. Daines had said he was not going to vote yes on the bill unless he saw some major changes for Main Street businesses.

The Republican said he needed to see revisions to the tax cut that would ensure Main Street businesses are not put at a disadvantage against large corporations. Just a day later, Sen. Daines said he was able to secure more than $60 billion in tax cuts for Main Street businesses, pushing his vote from a no to a yes.

"We are one step closer to a once in a generation opportunity to grow jobs and increase wages for Montana farmers, ranchers, small business owners and working families,” Sen. Daines stated.

Sen. Tester also responded to the Senate passing the tax cut bill.

"The U.S. Senate just passed a hastily-written bill that adds $1.5 trillion to the debt,” Sen. Tester stated. “Washington dysfunction has hit a new low and Montana families and small businesses deserve better.

The Senate bill still needs to be reconciled with the House version before it can go to the President's desk.
