President Trump has put forward a framework for much-needed and long-overdue reform of our tax code.

Right now, we are at a competitive disadvantage for creating jobs and attracting investments crucial to increasing employment.

Small- and medium-sized businesses on Main Street – which do the heavy lifting of hiring Americans and coming up with new products and services – spend too much time and money complying with an overly complicated tax system with few benefits.

It’s up to Congress to act on the president’s proposal and make America the best place in the world to earn a living.

The media is casting doubt on whether the president will achieve tax reform, but we shouldn’t trust their skepticism.

They were wrong when they said the president would never win the Republican nomination. They were spectacularly wrong when they said he could not win the general election.

Now they say the administration hasn’t achieved anything, and they are wrong again.

Since he was inaugurated, the economy has added over one million private sector jobs, consumer confidence has risen to the highest level in 13 years, manufacturing hit a 20-year high, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has hit 45 record highs and topped 23,000 for the first time in history.
