WASHINGTON, DC - Following today’s vote on historic tax reform, U. S. Rep. Will Hurd issued the following statement:

MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:

President Trump threw a dinner party at the White House last night. On the guest list were Republicans and Democrats. And on the menu, overhauling the tax code. The president is hoping to win support for his yet to be revealed plan to rewrite tax legislation. This, of course, comes a week after Trump cut a deal with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and fund the government into December. And that is the starting point for our conversation with Texas Republican Will Hurd. He's on the line.

Good morning, Congressman.

To House Republicans who don’t like the funding deal President Donald Trump made with Democrats, Rep. Will Hurd has a message: Get yourself together, or quit complaining.

U.S. Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) took to the road this week for his DC2DQ trek across the state, hosting town hall meetings at nearly every “Texas stop sign,” or Dairy Queen, within his district between El Paso and San Antonio – 20 stops in all.

Though opponents brought signs of their own, protesting everything from his stand on Planned Parenthood to the divisive climate in Washington, D.C., Hurd spoke of the bills he’s sponsored, made promises on tax reform, and answered a blizzard of constituent questions.

U.S. Reps. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, and Will Hurd, R-Helotes, on Friday said that whatever happens during the renegotiation, they already have bids out to bring the revised free trade agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico back to its hometown.

Republican Congressman Will Hurd and Democrat Henry Cuellar were in San Antonio Friday to discuss the future of the North American Fair Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

Both Congressmen said a deal among countries has its benefits, plus, it's important not to neglect your neighbors.

For Hurd, Reworking the North American Free Trade Agreement means protecting what's good in the 23-yr-old trade deal.

"It has created jobs, it has improved our economy, we just sometimes have to remind people of that,” said Hurd.
