AT&T Reiterates Support for Reform as Trump Pitches Plan to Cut Taxes

The president then shifted to talking about tax reform.

"I don't want to be disappointed by Congress". In both cases, similar tax-rate cuts unleashed a spurt of prosperity and job creation and revenue growth.

"The President's plan would reduce both the individual and business tax rates, which will be particularly helpful to the middle class and small businesses. And it could be much worse than that".

Which brings us to the tax-cut fight. Here's what you stand to gain, or lose, if Washington enacts the first real tax reform in three decades.

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.

The President hammered Congress throughout his speech, referencing last month's failed Republican effort to repeal and replace Barack Obamacare and calling out Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, who will be seeking her 3rd term next year.

Advocating a 15% corporate tax rate, and a slew of other reforms, Trump insisted "our self-destructive tax code cost millions of jobs, trillions of dollars, and billions of hours spent on compliance and paper work". The president said the USA just hit three percent GPD, and he thinks it can go even higher. 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).

Trump won Missouri a year ago with 56.4 percent of the vote, compared with Democrat Hillary Clinton's 37.9 percent. That's lower than in Japan (21.7 percent) and the United Kingdom (18.7 percent) and only a few percentage points higher than Germany (15.5 percent).

"Congress should work with him more". This would suggest that Trump's plan is more likely to bolster stock prices and CEO pay than trickle down to workers' salaries. It is an outdated system that places US companies at a competitive disadvantage relative to companies headquartered overseas.

Trump has argued that ambitious reform of the tax code is needed to juice the economy further, and is counting on the Republican-controlled Congress to make that ambition reality.

The president told his supporters that Democrats are standing in the way of tax reforms that would put more money in their pockets, 'just like they obstructed so many other things, including administration appointments and healthcare'.

Stephen Moore has blamed the loss of United States business to many countries, including Ireland, on the USA having "the highest business tax rate in the world".

The findings underscore a string of increasingly negative perceptions of the Trump White House, which continues to register low ratings on a wide array of issues, including its handling of North Korea, Russia, the environment, health care and race relations, with a majority of voters registering disapproval of each, reports Politico news.
