Today, the Trump Administration released their blueprint for tax reform. The proposal would cut taxes for large companies and powerful special interests while massively increasing the federal debt and depriving middle-class families of important benefits they currently receive. Below is Rep. Ron Kind's statement on the plan:

"There is no doubt that we need a simpler and fairer tax code that works for families, small businesses, and farmers. However, the Administration's proposal is not the answer. Their proposal cuts taxes for powerful special interests while sticking our children and grandchildren with the bill. I hope that in the coming tax reform discussions both sides can come together to work on a comprehensive plan that is both fiscally responsible and allows our country to be more competitive."
