On the GOP tax reform rollout… 

“Later today we’re going to be rolling out our massive tax cut bill. This is a proposal that’s going to cut tax rates for all families. It’s going to help us rebuild the middle class. It makes us competitive again. On the corporate side right now, as you know, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. What that [has] meant for small businesses, you’re seeing jobs flee, leaving the country, going to other countries like Ireland and Canada. Let’s bring those jobs back. Let’s rebuild our middle class. That’s what our bill does.”

On cutting tax rates for all families…

“What’s going to happen is a lot more of people’s income will be taxed at the lowest rate, both down at the 12% lower rate and 25%. We’re lowering rates, so more of your income is taxed at a lower level. We’re doubling the standard deduction. This is going to be a great win for middle-class families, blue-collar workers. Instead of a $12,000 deduction, you will be able to get a $24,000 deduction. And what that means is simplicity, reform in the tax code. Over 90% of Americans under our plan will actually be able to fill out their taxes on a postcard. Think of how simplified that will be for most families.

“The top rate is still in place. But again, more income is going to be taxed at the lower rate, which is a win for everybody. And, again, really for the middle class. They’re going to see, on average, about $4,000 more in their pocket.”

On the economic growth the plan will generate… 

“And, again, a more simplified code…that brings economic growth where you’re actually going to see jobs coming back to this country; you’re going to see real economic activity. That’s going to be something that grows the economy all across the board: more jobs for people, better wages for families. You’re going to see tremendous benefits all across the board with this tax cut plan.

“Look, we’re working very closely with President Trump, who’s been the champion at this from the beginning. He’s wanted to cut taxes for middle-class families and really get our economy going again, and this bill will do that.”
