WASHINGTON – Asian American Hotel Owners Association president and CEO Chip Rogers released the following statement on the tax reform plan outline released by the White House and congressional leaders today:
“A new Harvard-Harris Poll found that 89 percent of voters believe it’s time for tax reform. It’s no wonder; the last reform was in 1986. Since then, the tax code has become a bloated job killer filled with loopholes and complexities that benefit a few while costing the rest billions in compliance costs.
“For far too long politicians across the political spectrum have dreamed up every excuse imaginable as to why they need to take more money out of the pockets of the people who earned it. Now is the time to reverse course and move forward with tax cuts for every American. A growing economy leads to individual independence and a realization of the American dream. We applaud the effort to reform our tax code in a manner which provides both tax cuts and simplification. We urge Congress to set aside their differences and deliver for the American people.”
AAHOA is the largest hotel owners association in the world. The more than 16,000 AAHOA members own almost one in every two hotels in the United States. With billions of dollars in property assets and hundreds of thousands of employees, AAHOA members are core economic contributors in virtually every community in the United States. As an association, AAHOA is a proud defender of free enterprise and the foremost current-day example of realizing the American Dream.
