Delaney: Trump Plan Should Combine Tax Reform & Infrastructure

April 25th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

According to reports President Trump will unveil his tax reform proposal Wednesday. Since 2013, Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) has been the leading voice in Congress for using revenues from international tax reform to rebuild America’s infrastructure. Over 50 Democrats and 50 Republican have cosponsored Delaney legislation using this framework.

“This is a moment of truth decision for President Trump and his domestic agenda,” said Congressman Delaney. “Pairing infrastructure and tax reform is the surest way to really create jobs and help businesses grow in a fiscally-responsible way. If the President wants to get a deal done, if he wants a win, this is the way you do it, by using revenues from international tax reform to rebuild our failing infrastructure. After working on this issue for four years, we’ve had liberals, moderates and conservatives cosponsor our bills, we’ve won the backing of members of the Freedom Caucus and the Progressive Caucus. The American people deserve to see a serious proposal tomorrow, a proposal that encourages broad growth and prosperity and the best way to do that is to include a smart infrastructure program.”

In March, Congressman Delaney reintroduced the Infrastructure 2.0 Act and the Partnership to Build America Act, with Congressman Ted Yoho (FL-3) and Congressman Rodney Davis (IL-13) as the Republican lead cosponsors. Congressman Delaney has also written to President Trump, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn urging them to adopt this framework.
