Calls for Tax Reform and Pro-Growth Policies 

Congressman Vern Buchanan (R-FL), a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, joined Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade today to discuss the President’s budget, taxes and the economy.

Key quotes from Congressman Buchanan below:

On the President’s Budget:

“He’s looking to raise taxes two trillion dollars, increase the debt eight trillion dollars, this budget never balances, neither did any of his other budgets. So, it’s very concerning but I’m hopeful we can get something done.”

On tax reform: 

“We want to make it simpler, fairer and lower the taxes for small business and create more good- paying jobs.”

On economic growth:

“We want to have a budget that is more pro-growth... That will solve many of the challenges we’ve got in the country. That’s what we want to do as a result of working thorough tax reform and doing trade bills… We can grow the economy from 2 percent up to 4 or 5 percent. We’ve done it before and with the right leadership, we can do it again.”
