In the letter, Mr. Ortiz writes:

“The TCJA ushered in unprecedented shared prosperity in 2018 and 2019, driven by boosted household earning power and strong performance by small businesses, the backbone of the American economy. As a result of the tax cuts, average families saved over $2,000 per year in taxes, money that can be reinvested in household finances and communities… The tax cuts caused the economy to surge… Wages, including wages adjusted for inflation, surged.

“The TCJA is vital for American small businesses and families. Ordinary households and small businesses have come to depend on these tax cuts. They are especially important today, given the numerous other headwinds Americans are facing. Please reverse your position on tax hikes and support making the TCJA permanent. Doing so can bring small businesses and the nation back.”
