tax reform

A small group of demonstrators were turned away from U.S. Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.)’s Indianapolis office Tuesday as they sought to protest the GOP lawmaker’s vote on the Senate tax bill. They describe themselves as frustrated but undeterred.

The protest of Young’s vote on the tax overhaul was born out of a Facebook group discussion, says organizer Kendra Wilcox.

Representatives from businesses both small (multiple tech start-ups) and large (pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly) discussed how President Donald Trump’s tax reform framework would affect their companies Friday morning in Fishers.

With only Trump’s preliminary outline in front of them, they were cautiously optimistic about the impact of the administration’s reform plan.

A fiscal conservative group will spend more than a million dollars on an advertising campaign to target Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) on tax reform.

Americans for Prosperity will launch ads in three states – Indiana, Missouri, and Wisconsin – to put pressure on Democratic senators to back the GOP tax reform effort in Congress.

The 30-second ad, which starts running Friday, emphasizes the need for tax cuts.

President Donald Trump called the GOP’s tax reform plan a “middle class miracle” as he rolled out details in a speech in Indianapolis Wednesday.

Trump said tax reforms passed in Indiana before and during Vice President Mike Pence’s time as governor should be a model for national change.

Pence Offers Few Details On Tax Reform During Visit To Anderson

Vice President Mike Pence returned to Indiana Friday to call for federal tax reform. And, as expected, Pence asked all of Indiana’s Congressional delegation – including Democrat, Sen. Joe Donnelly – to support the efforts.

Pence gave no details about specific ways to reform the federal tax code at an appearance in Anderson. He says taxes would be lower for working families, small businesses and family farms – a line Hoosiers will remember from his term as governor. Pence says President Donald Trump will sign a tax cut by the end of the year, with one goal in mind.
