President Donald J. Trump Puts Americans First in Tax Relief

“If we want to renew our prosperity, restore our opportunity, and reestablish our economic dominance – which is what we should be doing – then we need tax reform that is pro-growth, pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-family, and, yes, pro-American.” – President Donald J. Trump

An America First Tax RELIEF PLAN: President Donald J. Trump, the House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee, and the Senate Finance Committee are proposing vital tax relief to strengthen the middle class, grow the economy, and unleash America’s economic comeback.

  • We are calling for a dramatic tax cut, which includes:
    • A larger zero tax bracket;
    • Lower tax rates for individuals, providing relief to Middle Class American families;
    • Lower small business tax rates, giving a boost to millions of American businesses and farms; and
    • Lower corporate tax rates, making American business more competitive.
  • Tax cuts, like those in President Trump’s unified framework, boost economic growth.
    • Since Vice President Pence’s 2013 tax cuts, as Governor of Indiana, unemployment in Indiana has been cut in half and more than 200,000 jobs have been created.
    • President Reagan’s 1986 corporate income tax cut contributed 3.3 percent to economic growth over ten years, according to the Tax Foundation.

A TAX CUT For WORKING AMERICANS: We are laying out a tax-relief framework that will unburden America’s Middle Class.

  • Double the standard deduction so that more income is taxed at zero percent.
    • The first $12,000 of income for an individual and $24,000 for a married couple will be tax-free.
  • Consolidate the seven existing tax brackets for taxable income to only three brackets: 12 percent, 25 percent, and 35 percent.
  • Increase and expand the Child Tax Credit to benefit more middle-income families and eliminate the marriage penalty.
  • Create a new $500 tax credit for those caring for an adult dependent or elderly loved one.

Simplify the tax code: We will simplify tax filing so Americans can file their returns on a single sheet of paper.

  • The vast majority of Americans will be able to file their taxes on a single sheet of paper.
    • American individuals and businesses spend more than 6 billion hours complying with the tax code, according to the National Taxpayer Advocate.
  • The plan repeals the Alternative Minimum Tax, which requires many taxpayers to do their taxes twice.
  • The plan ends the job killing “Death Tax.”

Lower The Crushing Business Tax Rates: We will cut tax rates for American business and make American business competitive again.

  • The plan will reduce the corporate tax rate to 20 percent.
    • The United States corporate income tax rate is the highest in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and has been above the OECD average for almost 20 years.
    • The United States corporate income tax rate is more than 10 points higher than China’s, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
  • The plan will also reduce the top tax rate paid by sole proprietors, S corporations, and partnerships to 25 percent.
  • For the next five years, American businesses will be able to immediately write off the cost of their equipment and other capital investments.
  • Economists agree that America’s corporate tax rate harms America’s workers by keeping their wages down.
    • More than 70 percent of the corporate tax burden falls on American workers, according the CBO.

Bring Wealth Back: We are proposing an “American Model” that will bring back trillions of dollars held overseas and restore America’s competitive edge.

  • Profits that have accumulated offshore will be subject to a one-time low tax rate, thereby ending the tax incentive to keep those profits offshore.
  • To avoid paying high U.S. corporate taxes on foreign profits, American companies have often reinvested their money abroad instead of repatriating it to U.S. shores.
    • Companies hold an estimated $2.8 trillion in earnings offshore, according to Audit Analytics.
  • This plan will stop the “Offshoring Model,” which penalizes companies for incorporating in the United States.

STARTS AT 1:40 on the video meter

Obamacare has led to higher costs and fewer health insurance options for millions of Americans. The 2010 healthcare law has brought the American people rising premiums, unaffordable deductibles, fewer insurance choices, and higher taxes. President Donald J. Trump promised to repeal and replace this disaster, and that is exactly what he is working with Congress to achieve. The White House

President Trump’s Hard Road to Restore Healthcare for Americans – After the Failed Obamacare – 6/28/2017

PRESIDENT MET WITH GOP members yesterday, Tuesday, June 27, 2017, encouraging them to get the Healthcare deal done.  They need to get it together.  Weak knee Republicans need to get over themselves and need to go forward repealing Obamacare.  The Vote on Healthcare was postponed in the Senate till Friday.  Nine Republican senators expressed their concerns but the White House is trying to get support. 


This is not a Trump Healthcare Bill, It is a House Healthcare Bill and now a Senate Bill to be either passed or rejected.


Democrats are calling for single payor healthcare (socialism). Democrats say that the Republican Healthcare bill will bring costs up.  Some Republicans have asked for more time and it is clear that Republican leadership are trying to get results quickly. Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight.  

President Trump today, Wednesday, June 28, 2017, made some remarks, paraphrased:  Yesterday we had  a tremendous meeting, the meeting went really well.  Obamacare is dead, if it does not get a subsidy it will die within 24 hours.  This new healthcare will take care of people for the right reasons and at the right costs.  Tremendous reductions from Obamacare.  The Republican Senators (52) had an impressive meeting.  What also came out was that this healthcare will be far better than Obamacare and much less expensive for the country.  We are giving ourselves a little more time.  We got rid of mandates, taxes, all the bad parts have repealed and replaced.  This will be a tremendous plan, we will have a lot of happy people in this country when we get it done.


Remarks by President Trump at a Meeting with Republican Senators

East Room

4:08 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I thought I’d ask you folks to come say hello, and we’ll discuss healthcare.  We have really no choice but to solve this situation.  Obamacare is a total disaster.  

It’s melting down as we speak.  Rates are going up.  In fact, it’s very interesting, Lisa, that you’re sitting next to me because, in Alaska, it was 206 percent — a 206 percent increase in Alaska.  And I used to use Arizona as the standard; that was 116 percent.  So it’s really meltdown, and we’re going to try to solve the problem.

So I invited all of you, and I think we have either 52 out of 52, or 50 out of 52.  And John, either one is pretty good, I think, as a percentage.

So we’re going to talk and we’re going to see what we can do.  We’re getting very close.  But for the country, we have to have healthcare.  And it can’t be Obamacare, which is melting down.  The other side is saying all sorts of things before they even knew what the bill was.  This will be great if we get it done.  And if we don’t get it done, it’s just going to be something that we’re not going to like.  And that’s okay, and I understand that very well.

But I think we have a chance to do something very, very important for the public — very, very important for the people of our country that we love.

So I’ll ask the press to leave.  I greatly appreciate you folks being here.  We love you very much.  You’re very kind and very understanding.  (Laughter.)  But we will now ask you to leave.  Thank you very much, everybody.  Thank you.

Q    Mr. President, what do you think of the Senate bill?

THE PRESIDENT:  I think the Senate bill is going to be great.  Thank you, everybody.  Thank you.  Such an understanding lot.

4:10 P.M. EDT 


Vice President Pence and Kellyanne Conway speak with and about “Obamacare Victims”.  Kellyanne said that people actually had a physical card and no ability to use it, the system considers you insured, and you are not.  Ms. Conway said that the President sees this as a “Moral Imperative” to repeal and replace Obamacare. 



On the other hand, the “OBSTRUCTIONISTS”, the Democrats are using lies, fear-mongering, and divisive rhetoric to push their agenda instead of debating the issues.  Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said the GOP bill’s spending cuts amount to “blood money.”  The Democrats are saying “everyone should be very scared.”  This is the Democratic Party,  Celebrities they basically called for the assassination of the President. Hillary Clinton tweeted that the Republican Party will become “the death Party” if the bill passes.  The Democrats are willing to destroy our nation with lies and rhetoric to get their way.  Their ultimate Goal is a single-payor system which is Socialism and Communism.



My View:  America is a democracy, not a dictatorship.  The democratic party has been holding America hostage for over 8-years with their lies, and comments. While they were in control, they destroyed healthcare, immigration, borders, security, etc. Now, they lost, BIGLY, but they are still holding us hostage with rhetoric designed to set aflame their base with lies that the uninformed believe.  All this is setting America up for, I hate to say it, a civil war if cooler, decent, patriotic heads do not prevail.  

I also know that Republicans under President Trump care for America and what happens to Americans.  They are working diligently to get this healthcare problem solved, and do not want to rush to get it passed if it is not done right.  The President is working with both sides to get this done right.  There is a faction of Senate Republicans and a few in the House who are second guessing this initial healthcare bill.

The left does not want to help because they are still pushing for a single-payer system. The left wants socialism and communism in America.  The Majority of Americans we reject Socialism and Communism, that is why we voted for President Donald J. Trump.

Let me know your thoughts.  Thank you for reading my work.
