Trump Calls on Congress to Move on Tax Relief

Aug 31, 2017

Without going into a lot of specifics President Trump used a speech in Springfield, Missouri to call for major tax reform legislation to be passed by Congress. In general, the President wants the tax code to be streamlined to make it easier to understand and comply with. He also wants middle class tax cuts and major corporate tax cuts so Americans can keep more of the money they make and corporations can spend more money creating jobs.

He directly challenged Congress to get it done, and called for a bi-partisan effort. However, Democrat leaders are already criticizing the plan as only benefiting the rich, when no specific proposal has even been offered yet.
