Republicans' passage of tax reform legislation was an emphatic reply to Americans, who by electing President Donald Trump last year sent a message that they were fed up with the stagnant status quo, Mitch McConnell wrote in a column for Fox News.

"With this week's historic vote, Republicans in Congress are sending our reply back to the American people: We heard you loud and clear," the Senate majority leader wrote.

The Tax and Jobs Act now awaits the signature of the president, the end of a long struggle for too many Americans after the Great Recession, McConnell wrote.

"Ten years ago, middle-class Americans in Kentucky and across the country were hit hard by the Great Recession," McConnell wrote.

"For eight disappointing years, Washington only made matters worse. The Obama administration's response to the crisis was to raise taxes on families, pile more regulations on businesses, and micromanage more of Americans' lives.

"The wealthy and well-connected did just fine as a result — but ordinary American households saw little progress," McConnell wrote.

But that's all coming to an end, McConnell writes, starting with the slashing of a burdensome corporate tax that makes American businesses more competitive.

"Reports are already coming in that these changes are making Chinese officials nervous. I'd call that a good sign for American manufacturers," McConnell writes.

But the bottom line is that Americans can bet their bottom dollar on a revamped economy.

"The American people have waited long enough for this victory," McConnell concluded.
