Letter to the editor: Middle class would benefit from Trump’s tax plan
Middle-class families are in dire need of tax reform. With higher taxes on corporate America, it means less opportunity for middle class individuals to find work. Americans have seen firsthand what recession looks like, and that job security is not always that secure. With a shortage of jobs in the U.S. we have more people that are overqualified looking for positions. With tax reform comes more opportunity for those people.
President Trump has proposed a business tax cut. This is beneficial to middle-class families because cutting the business tax rate will level the playing field for American companies. Tax reform will make it more attractive for American businesses to create jobs here. More companies would come back to the U.S. and invest in our economy.
Not only will tax reform boost the economy, but it will also simplify things for all Americans. Under the President’s plan, an estimated 95 percent of families would be able to do their taxes on a single page without having to keep records and paperwork to track numerous itemized deductions.
I trust wholeheartedly in the president’s tax plan, and greatly believe that this plan will boost our economy, and make the middle class prosper again.
