Town Hall Participants Demand Lower Corporate Taxes

Washington - After the failure of the Trump Health Care Initiative, the administration is said to be looking forward to a big win with one of it's favorite issues, tax reform.

The Trump tax plan would feature a huge reduction in the top tax rate that corporations pay, from over 35% to less than 15%, according to analysts familiar with the proposed legislation.

Also, billions would be saved by the wealthiest taxpayers according to proponents of the reform bill being considered.

"We weren't that excited about the repeal of Obamacare, but this is the big one we have been waiting for", explained one unemployed auto worker at a Trump rally in Michigan recently.

The comment echoed a refrain heard repeatedly at almost every town hall meeting conducted recently by members of Congress in their home districts. "Don't take away our healthcare....and bring on the tax cuts for Goldman Sachs and Exxon!" shouted one citizen at his Senator at a Tennessee gathering of voters.

Members of Congress have reported a significant influx of calls and emails from citizens demanding the tax cuts for big business and wealthy individuals take effect "as soon as possible".

Even Democratic legislators have been impressed with the interest expressed by their constituents in passing giant tax breaks for corporations, and the benefits that will occur to the top managements at those firms, fueling even larger increases in their stock options and seven figure salaries, wealth that is sure to trickle down to lower and middle income citizens in short order.

Trump and his White House team were thus very anxious to move on from the Health Care defeat and switch to this new initiative, an issue the voters are clearly very excited to move forward, popular legislation that will get his mandate back on track with the American people.
