Trump pushes Congress on tax reform

President Trump on Wednesday launched his efforts to sell tax reform, urging both Republicans and Democrats in Congress to get behind his plans to overhaul the tax code.

In a speech in Springfield, Mo., Trump called tax reform a “once in a generation opportunity” and said he doesn’t “want to be disappointed by Congress” on the issue.

Trump laid out four principles he would like to see in a tax-code rewrite: A tax code that’s simple and easy to understand, a globally competitive tax code, tax relief for middle-class families and results that bring┬áback trillions of dollars in money held overseas.
He touted tax reform as a way to help boost the economy, jobs and paychecks for middle-class workers.
“We’re here today to launch our plans to bring back Main Street by reducing the crushing tax burden on our companies and on our workers,” he said.
