President Trump Speaks in Springfield

Trump said with lower taxes for middle class families, "that means they'll go out and spend their money and it'll be a attractive thing to watch".

"This is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to deliver real tax reform for everyday hard-working Americans", President Trump told employees of the Loren Cook Co., which has been making fans and exhaust systems in Springfield, Missouri, since Y 1941. Claire McCaskill in her home state of Missouri Wednesday to support his plan for tax cuts, calling on voters to kick her out of office if she resists.

In addition, Trump called for tax cuts for individuals as well as incentivizing trillions of dollars of repatriation of foreign earnings by American companies.

Representative Jason Smith serves on the Ways and Means committee; tax writing is what they do, and he says they've been working with the president to simplify the tax code.

Otherwise, if obstructing the Trump agenda is the way the GOP Congress wants to run its 2018 re-election, so be it.

"I don't want to be disappointed by Congress, do you understand?"

"This is an area on which I'm optimistic President Trump and I will find common ground", she said in a statement to the Washington Post over the weekend.

"I think Congress is going to make a comeback", he said.

The United States tax system hasn't been rewritten since the mid-1980's. He also suggested eliminating tax loopholes and lowering taxes for middle-class families.

The speech on tax reform began with Trump speaking about plans for the "legendary" Route 66, with the aim to bring back Main Street.


The President classified his ideas as "pro-American tax reform" that will allow companies to hire in the US and expand at home, not overseas.

However, a lack of specifics did not stop some Democrats from criticising Mr Trump's gamit, potentially already derailing the President's goal to "put the partisan posturing behind us".

"What could possibly be more bipartisan than helping people keep more of what they earn?" he said.

The idea that the US could gain a competitive advantage by lowering corporate tax rates below those of other developed counties is supported by many conservative groups.

Even though Trump has touted tax reform for months, his administration has yet to produce a more detailed plan or a draft of legislation.

Large companies keeping profits overseas do so to keep from paying high American taxes, Trump said.

Congressman Richard Neal, D-Springfield, however, questioned Trump's pledge to help middle class Americans, as well as his commitment to bipartisanship.

"We are with you today, we are with you tomorrow and we will be with your every single day after", he said, noting that the victims were "people, people".

"But it would make us highly competitive".

Meanwhile, Trump must also negotiate an increase in the federal debt ceiling and budget for the coming fiscal year during September, among other pending issues.
