Trump Vows 'Great Detail' on Tax Reform in Next 2 Weeks

Trump Vows 'Great Detail' on Tax Reform in Next 2 Weeks

The Andeavor refinery, which produces gas, diesel and jet fuel, processes 74,000 barrels per day.

The ad, from the Not One Penny campaign, asks the public to tell Sens.

Cramer also wants to hear about simplifying the tax code and making the United States more competitive with other countries. Not One Penny said it is spending five figures on the ad buy.

While there, Trump plans to emphasize that the last time Congress passed a major tax overhaul - which was under Republican President Ronald Reagan - Democrats signed on.

The president is taking his tax sales pitch on the road, traveling to North Dakota on Wednesday to outline why an overhaul is needed and how it would benefit the middle class.

"We're going to reduce taxes for companies, and those companies are going to produce jobs", he said.

Inhofe Statement on Bridenstine for NASA Administrator
Bridenstine is already on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee and has been gunning for the head boss role at NASA. The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on criticism of his nomination.

Trump says he intends to cut taxes by the most since 1981, but the White House still hasn't released a plan with numbers to support the claim.

"The taxes are insane - the highest taxed nation in the world".

Speaking alongside relevant cabinet officials, Trump is expected to hold North Dakota's economy up as an example for America.

Trump - who is scheduled to be joined on Wednesday's trip by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council director Gary Cohn - plans to reiterate numerous policy priorities he announced last week, during his visit to Springfield, Mo. Burgum, a first-term Republican, said the US tax code is "long overdue for reform".

"Our small businesses are the ones that continue to get hammered", said Meske, who plans to attend the speech. She knows which side her political bread is buttered on, but the move has gone over like a lead balloon among Heitkamp's fellow Democrats.

Tax reform's passage is uncertain given that the Republican-controlled Congress wasn't even able to pass an Obamacare repeal, something that the party rallied around in previous elections. But the president remains popular here, with a recent Gallup poll showing his 59 percent approval rating in North Dakota stands second only to West Virginia, and Heitkamp was reportedly under consideration for agriculture secretary under Trump. "We welcome this opportunity, and we hope the president will spend as much time listening to our concerns as he does selling his agenda".
