WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill released the following statement after meeting with President Trump at the White House to discuss prospects for bipartisan tax reform:
“I underlined my willingness to work with the President on tax reform that’s focused on families living paycheck-to-paycheck, and I was reassured when the President said he’s not interested in passing a tax cut for the rich. I also emphasized that it’s hard to support something when we haven’t seen any details about what is being proposed—and when the broad strokes that Congressional leaders have outlined would actually leave working families in Missouri paying more in taxes. The President and I agreed that we need to see those kinds of details before we can make serious headway. The President also encouraged us to go to work and try to get a bipartisan deal, and that’s a goal I share and strongly support.”
“…I was reassured when the President said he’s not interested in passing a tax cut for the rich…”
You know, those Trump voters in Missouri will never vote for you. Work on turning out your base.
