FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) U.S. Sen. Todd Young of Indiana stopped to discuss the Republican Party’s tax reform agenda in Fort Wayne on Friday.
Young held a round table with business leaders to talk about the GOP’s tax overhaul plan, the party’s top political priority. Last week, after President Donald Trump unveiled his tax reform plan in Indianapolis, Young said, “For the first time in 30 years, the prospects for a simpler tax code that lowers taxes for the working class and provides relief for small business owners looks good.”
Young said Trump’s $5 trillion plan would boost the economy and increase the take-home pay of every Hoosier. As it stands, Trump’s package would cut taxes for corporations and potentially for individuals, simplify the tax system and nearly double the standard deduction used by most Americans would boost the economy and increase the take-home pay of every Hoosier.
Before the round table discussion, Young stopped by WANE-TV First News to discuss the tax reform, health care, and the opioid crisis.
