It seems everything has changed in the last three decades except the now-antiquated and increasingly complicated US tax code.

"It is still clearly possible that tax reform could be enacted over the next near". Even with a busy fall schedule, lawmakers must seize this rare opportunity to push for a tax system that would increase wages, drive job creation and provide meaningful changes for the average American. I'm sure the president will argue for 15 percent. (Conservatives don't seem to have a problem adding more money to the deficit, as long as it's for tax cuts.) And individual loopholes, either the closing of them or their continued existence, will nearly certainly draw opposition from even the most normally amenable lawmakers.

Trump is seeking his first legislative victory with tax reform after failing to execute his party's long-promised repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act. In between 2012 and 2015, this number spiked to six major companies leaving per year. 'If the agreement goes through, negotiations on raising the now binding debt ceiling will start again in only a few months, ' suggesting that other items on the agenda may have to take a back seat to debt debate. Not all was ideal during his time as president, but in general, it was positive for the US economy.

According to a report on Bloomberg.com Tuesday, Trump, a Republican, is planning an aggressive road show to promote a tax overhaul.

The U.S. had tax reform when Ronald Reagan was President and the economy revitalized a lot.

Guy Berkbile, owner of Guy Chemical in Somerset, knows this all too well.

Why? He had to take out numerous loans and mortgages on his house-just to cover his taxes.

Last year, the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation estimated its cost to the Treasury at $368 billion through 2020, and the Congressional Budget Office reported that simply capping the deduction would cut deficits by $955 billion over a decade. Real estate investors, particularly ones who use so-called property swaps to defer paying taxes on their gains, could also be big losers, as could upper- and middle-class earners in high-tax states like NY and California if reform eliminates the federal deduction for state and local income taxes.

This complicated tax code combined with extra layers of additional taxes make it increasingly harder to make it in America.

The tweets came as forward progress appeared to begin on the tax overhaul.

An employee of an American corporation now forfeits thousands of dollars each year because of the high corporate tax rate. Excluding the ill-fated border adjustment tax on imports that found significant opposition in Congress, leaders have generally had an idea of what reform would look like.

As part of a cascade of tweets Wednesday night, President Donald Trump said one of the major incentives for a tax overhaul, including cuts, was making the United States more competitive with the rest of the world.

"In that scenario, my experience tells me that big corporations, big lobbyists do fine, and middle class families don't always do so fine", he said.

All Pennsylvanians and small businesses like Guy Chemical deserve a simpler and fairer tax code that works for them, not against them, and unshackles the American dream.

Congressional Republicans are going to try to slash spending.
