VIDEO: Carrie Sheffield on MSNBC: Here’s How Tax Reform Helps Young People

In an interview on MSNBC over the weekend, Generation Opportunity Executive Director Carrie Sheffield explained how young people stand to benefit from the current tax reform plan in Congress.

“It’s going to put more money into the pockets of workers,” Sheffield said. “Middle class Americans will see an increase in their take-home pay because of this … especially young people.”

Sheffield noted that Generation Opportunity was one of 23 organizations that have signed onto a new coalition letter to the House Ways and Means Committee in support of the plan, which is called the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.”

“While more work remains to be done, this legislation simplifies the code, reduces taxes for families and businesses, and grows the economy,” the groups wrote. “This will lead to higher wages and new or better jobs.”
