Editor: Congresswoman Barbara Comstock voted to cut my taxes. How do I know? I can see it in my checking account.
Rarely does federal action have a direct effect on the lives of ordinary citizens. Most of their decisions impact the bureaucracy or administrative state. But the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which Congresswoman Comstock voted for, has meant something very real to my middle class family: over $1,500 this year alone.
The income tax reduction, plus the expanded child tax credit, is the equivalent of a massive take-home pay raise for my family. And probably yours too.
When thinking about how you’ll vote this year, Congresswoman Comstock’s record deserves a holistic look. For those unfamiliar, you’ll find a champion of free enterprise, a community servant, a female role model and champion of women everywhere, and much more.
But, if you’re judging based just off how votes impact you. Look no further than your wallet, and Congresswoman Comstock’s vote to cut your taxes.
