District of Columbia to Cut Taxes
IncSmart District of Columbia (Small Business and Startups) - Treasury Secretary Mnuchin reports Trump administration is committed to tax reform by August.  Mnuchin also predicts the senate and house would pass laws so economy would have serious growth boom.  Sweeping tax reform is high on the Trump agenda. The House of Representatives and the Senate, controlled by Republicans, have been unable to find consensus on a tax package that could pass both chambers.

On the boarder adjustment tax, American manufacturers and the House are pushing for the tax, but retailers and the Senate are holding back.  This would give tax breaks to manufacturers who export but raise the tax bills of companies that import goods.  The broken tax code encourages the import of foreign-made goods while penalizing products made in and exported from America.  Comprehensive tax reform with a border adjustment provision will create more American jobs, increase U.S. worker wages, grow the economy and eliminate incentives to shift jobs and profits overseas.

I thought the boarder adjustment tax was part of the penalty for companies moving manufacturing from America to save money on Federal taxes. If this is the case, the boarder adjustment tax must be created.

Americans don't mind a small increase on some retail items as long as the tag says Made in America. This is part of the level playing field on free trade. McCain and Graham suck. They are Dinosaurs. They are the reason we are in this.

Why do retailers even care? They just pass the fees to consumers.
