Trump calls on Congress to address 'crushing tax burden'

Eric Greitens, left, and Sen. Roy Blount (R-MO) and other members of his Cabinet. President Trump acknowledged that "90% of Americans need professional help to do their taxes", and herein emphasized the importance of a simpler, easier to understand the tax code.

He further called on congressional Democrats and Republicans alike to support his administration's effort to overhaul the US tax system, contending that it's their "once in a generation opportunity" to do so. Springfield is considered the birthplace of Route 66.

"Products made with American hands, labor and grit will once again be delivered throughout the world", Trump said.

Alas, it's up to Congress to flesh out his word: "I do not want to be disappointed by Congress, you understand me?" "I think Congress is gonna make a comeback, I hope so".

Trump has said the changes will jumpstart economic growth and make the system more fair for regular families. And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you, and if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office.

There were four primary pillars to the tax reform plan President Trump spoke about.

The United States is counting on it". To reduce corporate taxes and lower top marginal rates on rich people!

Tax analysts said Trump's initial proposal would reap the most benefits for corporations and wealthy Americans, while barely giving a boost to middle and lower class citizens. Using that and subsequent statements from administration officials as a guide, the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a non-profit, non-partisan research group, has calculated the impact on U.S. taxpayers and the federal budget.

"What could possibly be more bipartisan than allowing families to keep more of what they earn and creating an environment for real job and wage growth?" "Millions of struggling citizens will be lifted from welfare to work".

He also said the U.S. had "massive trade deficits" with these countries, but that his administration was going to "fix that". "For passage, Donald trump will have to get virtually every republican to vote for him", he said.
