America First Policies Takes “Tax Cuts to Put America First” Tour to Chicago, Illinois
America First Policies made its 17th stop on its "Tax Cuts to Put America First" tour on Friday, July 13, at the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, IL.
The series, "Tax Cuts to Put America First," features guest speakers discussing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act--signed into law by President Donald J. Trump in December 2017.
The event featured a panel with U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger (IL-16); Manager of Gilberts Developments LLC, Troy Mertz; and President and CEO of HM Manufacturing, Nicole Wolter. The panel discussed how the tax legislation is affecting Illinois residents, families, businesses, and the nation as a whole.
Following the panel, Governor Bruce Rauner introduced the Vice President to a crowd of more than 500 people.
"More than 6 million Americans have already received a bonus, a pay raise, or bigger benefits, including 55,000 workers here in Illinois who have gotten a pay raise or a bonus since the Trump tax cuts were signed. ... Working families in Illinois can expect to see their yearly salaries increase by over $4,500 a year once the tax cuts have their full effect,” said the Vice President.
