Trump pushes tax over­haul to ‘bring back Main Street’

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Weather -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump launched his fall push to over­haul the na­tion’s tax sys­tem by pledg­ing Wed­nes­day that the de­tails-to-come plan would “bring back Main Street” by re­duc­ing the crush­ing tax bur­den on mid­dle-class Amer­i­cans, mak­ing a pop­ulist ap­peal for a pro­posal ex­pected to heav­ily ben­e­fit cor­po­rate Amer­ica.

Trump said his vi­sion for rewrit­ing the tax sys­tem, a key cam­paign pledge, would un­lock stronger eco­nomic growth and ben­e­fit com­pa­nies and work­ers alike. He promised it would be “pro-growth, pro-jobs, pro-worker and pro-Amer­i­can.”

Trump dan­gled the prospect of the “big­gest ever” tax cut, warn­ing that with­out it, “jobs in our coun­try can­not take off the way they should. And it could be much worse than that.”

Trump opened his tax over­haul pitch at a man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in Spring­field, Missouri, a com­mu­nity known as the birth­place of Route66.
