Washington, D.C. — U.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam released the following statement after joining Speaker Paul Ryan and Ways & Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady to unveil a better way to reform our tax code:

“Today we unveiled a bold agenda to simplify our tax code for working families, provide certainty and job security to America’s workforce, and end the IRS as we know it. Our current tax code is a mess and it puts American workers at a competitive disadvantage. The IRS is out of control and needs to reined in and broken up. Everybody knows we need something new and now House Republicans have put forward a bold plan – a better way. I’m grateful to Speaker Ryan and Chairman Brady for their leadership as we show the American people there’s a better way forward.”

Rep. Roskam serves as Chairman of the Ways & Means Subcommittee on Oversight.
