Gottheimer, who attended a bipartisan meeting at the White House last week on NY and New Jersey infrastructure projects, told reporters he wants to discuss the status of young undocumented immigrants with Trump, and push for a vote to address the expiring DACA policy.
"I think the wealthy will be pretty much where they are". As North Dakota's former tax commissioner, I understand how much these issues directly impact North Dakota families, farmers, and workers - which is why any tax reform plan must be done with their best interest in mind.
Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said Wednesday that despite possible common ground on tax reform for both parties, it will be hard for Republicans to work with Democrats due to their unrealistic demands and unwillingness to come to the table. "We are looking for the middle class and we are looking for jobs - jobs being the economy".
The president also promised a major tax cut for businesses, to "encourage companies to hire and grow in America".
Earlier Wednesday, Trump tweeted that "t$3 he approval process for the biggest Tax Cut & Tax Reform package in the history of our country will soon begin". And Trump hasn't gotten more specific than saying he wants to provide corporations and individuals with a massive tax cut.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) proposed the deal.
Gottheimer said he "raised the importance" of the deduction with Trump on Wednesday. "The minority leader and his team were trying to get us not to write it that way, but I did write it that way and that is the way it passed".
