President Trump has had a busy week preparing for Hurricane Irma before it makes landfall in Florida, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t also working on other important pieces of legislation to govern the country.
One of the biggest reforms President Trump is looking to accomplish is tax reform, and he made three major promises in his weekly address on Friday that you DON’T want to miss. Here’s exactly what he said:
“Our current burdensome tax code is a massive lead weight against the American economy. It costs us millions of jobs, trillions of dollars, and billions and billions of hours wasted on paperwork and compliance.”
“My Administration is working closely with Congress to develop a plan that will deliver more jobs, higher pay, and lower taxes for businesses of all sizes and most importantly for Middle-Class families all across America.”
“First, we are going to make filing taxes as simple as possible. If you’re like most Americans, under our plan you will file your taxes on a single page. What a difference that will make – and you won’t need to keep endless receipts and paperwork. We are freeing you from the horrible tax maze.”
“Secondly, we will cut taxes for Middle-Class families. We want you to keep more of your hard earned money. This way, you could spend it, you could save it, you could do whatever you want.”
“Third, we will restore our competitive edge so we can create more jobs and higher wages for the American worker…We are going to cut taxes on American Industry so we can create more business in our country.”

Woohoo! Honestly, this is the first time I’ve actually been excited to do my taxes. President Trump is a businessman- he knows exactly the kinds of excessive taxes that are strangling business. And since he isn’t a dyed-in-the-wool politician, he’s ready to make smart and efficient reforms that are both practical and useful.
It’s great to have someone in the White House who actually is serious about tax reform.
Love what the President has been saying? SHARE it out, patriots!
