Statement by Secretary Mnuchin on President Trump’s Tax Reform Speech

WashingtonTreasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin issued the following statement today after President Donald J. Trump’s speech on tax reform in Indianapolis, Indiana:
“Today President Donald J. Trump shared how middle-income families will win when we cut their taxes, and make American businesses competitive again.  The President outlined a framework with Congress that will create a simpler and fairer tax code that fuels job creation, higher wages, and economic growth, and will lead to the lowest marginal income tax rate for small and mid-size businesses in more than 80 years.  Indiana is a great example of how tax relief and reforms like these can lead to record-high employment, more investment in education and innovation, and more manufacturing right here in America.  Democrats and Republicans have a historic opportunity to work together to pass meaningful legislation that, as the President stated, will begin the ‘Middle Class Miracle.’  With the President’s leadership, we will create a level playing field so that American businesses and workers will be in a position to succeed in our global economy.”
