Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson on President Trump’s one-pager on tax reform priorities, courtesy of the Bradford Era:
U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and Congressman Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., both applauded Trump’s efforts at prioritizing tax reform.
Trump’s proposal contains measures that would simplify tax returns for individuals, which Thompson lauded.
The congressman said, “For too long, American taxpayers have dealt with a cumbersome system that only works for those with an army of accountants and lawyers. That is not reality for the average American and we must promote a system that is straightforward, focuses on job growth, and is responsive to the nature of the American economy, which is evolving as we move further into the 21st Century.
“We must restructure the code to unleash the true potential of the American economy and America’s innovators and small businesses,” Thompson said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues, the Senate and the Administration as we work on this issue.”
