President Donald Trump Delivers Tax Reform Speech

It is no secret that President Trump and Republican lawmakers could use a victory now more than ever as they attempt to hold onto majorities in the House and Senate.

The President emphasised that a new tax system was germane to sustaining new prosperity in the U.S. Trump outlined several principles for tax reform, particularly cleaning the code of tax breaks and offering tax relief to middle-class families.

Larry Kudlow, the economist who advised the Reagan administration and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, said President Trump's tax reform plan will be good for workers.

Finally, the push toward tax reform offers an opportunity to establish sensible, pro-growth policy for America's energy sector.

A room of Americans who supported Trump, Hillary Clinton, and a third-party candidate in the election tore into the president's performance during his over eight months in office. Brady noted that "we cannot let the status quo win" when it comes to the USA tax code and that "when this fight gets tough, and it will over the coming months, we can't give up".

Here's something everyone - Republicans, Democrats, you and me - should be able to agree on: We all pay too much in taxes and we need to cut them.

These vile accusations were factored into the decisions made by the voters in formerly blue states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania, who voted overwhelmingly for President Trump.

Missouri's other senator, Republican Roy Blunt, was at the private event and says he's on board with the president's plans.

There has been no comprehensive overhaul of the tax code since 1986.

Ironically, Trump recently harkened upon the voters of Pittsburg to make a statement about his policies, justifying his pull-out of the Paris climate agreement by saying, "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris". In the past, the Trump administration has indicated an interest in creating a new, preferential tax rate for businesses that are not taxed as corporations (known as pass-through businesses).

Air Force One landed just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, Trump was seen exiting the plane with Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, Congressman Billy Long, and his daughter Ivanka Trump. With Mr. Trump's "American Model", he promised to lower the corporate tax rate to 15 percent. He called for a tax system that would minimise tax rates for businesses and provide a big boost to the middle class, Politico reports. This would suggest that Trump's plan is more likely to bolster stock prices and CEO pay than trickle down to workers' salaries.

"Your advantage over us will be diminished, but it would still be an advantage", he added. You can't get the tax base broadened without a single Democratic vote helping you do it, so don't try to roll this boulder up the hill.

It was not clear, for example, whether the goal for 15% corporate tax rate was workable or would aim to reduce the nominal rate - now 39% - or the actual rate that company's pay, which is closer to 19%.

Trump is scheduled to meet with congressional leaders Wednesday. "They are going to win from more business investment and productivity, and more jobs and higher real wages".

It's no secret that President Donald Trump has some loud critics.
