The Latest: Trump insists Mexico will pay for border wall
During a visit to Springfield, Missouri, Trump called for a bipartisan effort to simplify the tax code, praising the reform signed by President Reagan in his second term which simplified the code and simultaneously lowered the top tax rate and increased the bottom rate.
They also say they want the plan to be deficit neutral, which would force lawmakers to identify how they might make up for any lost tax revenue. What rate will corporations and small businesses pay?
Harvey aid is a fresh addition to an agenda already packed with must-do tasks and multiple legislative deadlines: Passing a stopgap spending bill to avert a government shutdown; increasing the government's borrowing authority to prevent a market-quaking default on US obligations; and paving the way for a GOP rewrite of the USA tax code. USA business leaders are urging action among Republicans to level the competitive playing field for American companies through a tax code overhaul. And the Democrats have shown no willingness to support a tax overhaul they deem to benefit the wealthy disproportionately.

The White House stressed that Mr. Trump is determined to deliver tax relief to Americans, but he also needs to put a legislative victory on the board to get his presidency back on track after the failure of the Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill.
Here's what Trump and corporate CEOs don't want you to know: Corporate tax cuts don't create jobs.
But can the country afford to have taxes cut at this time?
