Trump: ‘The Most Important Investment Our Country Can Make Is in Our Children’

‘We’ve also given Congress the flexibility to add an additional top rate on the very highest income earners to provide even more tax relief for every day working people’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "We are nearly doubling the amount of income that is taxed at a rate of zero. Above that amount, income will be taxed at three rates: 12 percent, 25 percent, and 35 percent. We will also substantially increase the child tax credit to save working families even more money, because we know the most important investment our country can make is in our children. Our framework also provides relief to those who care for an older loved one through a $500 tax credit, something that everybody has been wanting so badly for so long. By eliminating the tax breaks and special interest loopholes that primarily benefit the wealthy, our framework ensures that the benefits of tax reform go to the middle class, not the highest earners. That's why we’ve also given Congress the flexibility to add an additional top rate on the very highest income earners to provide even more tax relief for everyday working people."
