Trump pushes Congress on tax reform
by admin ·
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 back 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.
