President Seeks Middle Class Tax Cut by September

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow
Tax Cuts 2.0 would give 10 percent cut to middle class

In an interview on Friday, President Trump’s National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said the president is pushing to unveil “Tax Cuts 2.0” by September.

“We’d love to have a 10 percent middle class tax cut, and we would love to strengthen and make permanent some of the other tax cuts,” Kudlow said.

He added, “In the meeting in the Oval [Office] two days ago, he looked at me and he said, ‘Let’s get it out by September.’” Then Kudlow said, “It’ll come out sometime in September.”

He added that the director of the Office of Management and Budget has “put together a $1.4 trillion plug to make tax cuts permanent, and we’ll use that to craft our package.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Trump, Director Kudlow and others as they work on putting together the tax package.
  • For wisdom as they determine how to best provide economic incentives through tax cuts.
