Trump's focus on jobs could give him a tax reform win
Aug 31, 2017, 01:35
"That was below the average rate for developed countries at the time", Trump said.
That changed Wednesday as Trump's tax-reform speech, which was light on details but made a strong case for tax reform, kept going back to promises that cutting business taxes and simplifying the tax code would lead to more job creation for the middle class.
"Trickle-down economics didn't work in 2001 and 2003 and it won't work now", he said.
The tax cut would be part of four main goals Trump said should be included in a tax overhaul: simplifying the tax code, making it more competitive with tax regimes in other countries, providing tax relief for middle-class families and encouraging US companies to bring back trillions of dollars in profits "parked overseas".
Trump's plan was light on details, but centered around four ideas: simplifying the tax code, cutting corporate taxes, giving tax relief to middle-class families and repatriating trillions of dollars now parked overseas. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin initially set the end of August as a timetable for passage of tax reform efforts and, in April, the administration released several topline numbers of its proposal. "And if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office", Trump said to applause.
"We need a tax cut depending on how it's structured, said one man".

Slashing corporate rates was one of four broad points Trump made during the address, though he didn't provide detail for any of them.
Those goals included cutting the current number of tax brackets by more than half, eliminating "most tax breaks" that benefit "high-income" earners and lowering the tax rate for businesses.
"What we heard today, however, was little more than the same old supply side hocus pocus".
Mr Trump also said he might scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada to jumpstart negotiations. NDP Leader Liz Hanson said opposition members need to know the government's position on NAFTA to do their job.
