 Statement from Secretary Mnuchin on President Trump’s Speech to Joint Session of Congress


2/28/2017

Washington— Secretary of the Treasury Steven T. Mnuchin issued the following statement today in response to President Donald J. Trump’s speech to a joint session of Congress:
 
“President Trump’s plan to grow our economy will work because it focuses on a middle-income tax cut for working families and an end to regulations that are stifling job creation.  We must simplify the tax code, reduce business tax rates, and make America competitive in the global economy. This administration will end the failed Obama-era policies that have held back economic growth for the last eight years, and unleash the new jobs and higher wages Americans desperately need and deserve.”
