U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement on President Trump’s trip to Indianapolis on Wednesday to discuss tax reform. Donnelly will travel with the President and join him in Indianapolis.
Donnelly said, “It’s an honor to welcome President Trump to Indiana, and I hope he has an opportunity to hear directly from Hoosiers on an issue that impacts not only our families but our economy. I believe tax reform should include policies that will benefit working and middle class families, create new jobs, and protect existing jobs. I’m pleased the President has been supportive of my proposal to address the outsourcing of American jobs, and I am hopeful that any tax reform proposal includes measures that support American workers as well as the middle class and encourage domestic investments.”
During a recent dinner at the White House, Donnelly discussed his proposal to address the outsourcing of American jobs by supporting companies that invest in American workers and penalizing companies that ship jobs to other countries. In February, in a meeting at the White House, Donnelly discussed the End Outsourcing Act with President Trump and the President expressed his support for the proposal. This came after Donnelly introduced the End Outsourcing Act in January.
Donnelly hopes there will be a bipartisan process to reform our tax code in a way that gives working and middle-class families greater economic security. The Administration has not yet released a detailed legislative proposal on tax reform.
