Washington, D.C., April 26, 2017 – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s proposed tax reform plan:
“President Trump has listened to those who feel they work harder today for less or are out of a job. The president delivered on his commitment to put the force of the White House behind policies that will grow the manufacturing economy in the United States and raise standards of living for everyone in our country.
“By modernizing our tax code and making it more competitive, manufacturers—and all businesses—will find it easier to invest their next dollar and create their next job here in the United States. It can mean more jobs, better jobs and more money in their paychecks. It means lifting more people up and empowering more Americans to improve their lives.
“This is yet another item on President Trump’s list of accomplishments in his first 100 days. Of course, the work doesn’t end today. Manufacturers are committed to working with the administration and Congress to ensure the best possible pro-growth tax reform plan reaches President Trump’s desk. The NAM has waited decades for tax reform, and the need is more urgent than ever.”
