Toomey Dines with Trump, Discusses Tax Reform
U.S. Senator Pat Toomey had dinner last night with President Trump and nine other Senators to discuss tax reform. Toomey left the dinner and spoke positively about the chances of tax reform passing the Senate.
“The president really strongly stressed his interest in getting a really good pro-growth tax reform done as quickly as we can. The goal is before Christmas to have a tax bill on the president’s desk, and I still believe that’s doable,” Toomey said, according to the Post-Gazette.
The main issues discussed were lowering the corporate tax rate, eliminating deductions and encouraging companies to bring foreign profits back to the U.S.
“We had a great substantive conversation about policy, and great outreach to Democrats,” Toomey told the Morning Call.
The dinner hosted seven Republicans and three Democrats.
