Yesterday, Ivanka Trump joined Senate and House Republicans at the Capitol to discuss the importance of increasing the child tax credit to benefit working families of America. Our tax code must recognize and support the reality that the majority of parents in the United States are a part of the workforce. As wages have stagnated over the years, the cost of raising a family has grown exponentially, creating a critical need for tax reform to ensure that all American families can invest in their children and thrive.
Another Step towards Recovery
On Tuesday, the Senate passed the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act of 2017, in which the President requested additional funds for critical disaster relief to assist Americans living in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and other affected areas rebuild their lives. President Trump also received a briefing on Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery efforts in Dallas, Texas, yesterday.
Freedom, Opportunity, and Prosperity for Americans
“I’ve traveled across America this year. Every place I visit, working families and job creators have told me one thing: They told me that the biggest obstacle to their success is our country’s broken tax code. One after another — I’ve sat at tables in California and in cities large and small with small-business owners and families — one after another have spoken to me about the burden that our tax system places on them and the barrier that it puts in-between them and reaching and achieving their dreams,” said Vice President Pence at the American Enterprise Institute.
President Trump has taken decisive action to promote freedom, opportunity, and prosperity for every American. To revive America’s economy, the Trump Administration has been rolling back regulations that stifle American businesses and have eroded opportunities for working families for far too long. Under the Unified Framework supported by the President, middle-income America will see tax cuts, job creation, and business growth.
