America First Policies Takes “Tax Cuts to Put America First” Tour to the Badger State
America First Policies made its 12th stop on its "Tax Cuts to Put America First" tour yesterday, April 25, at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
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 opened with a greeting and remarks from former Trump campaign manager Corey R. Lewandowski and featured a panel with U.S. Congressman Glenn Grothman (WI-06); Alfredo Ortiz, the president and CEO of the Job Creators Network; and Louis Woo, special assistant to the chairman and CEO of Foxconn Technology Group, which has invested $10 billion into the Wisconsin economy with the building of a new factory in Racine County. The panel discussed how the tax legislation is affecting Wisconsin residents, families, and businesses, and the nation as a whole.
Following the panel, David Bossie, president of Citizens United, addressed the crowd. He was followed by U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Governor Walker introduced the keynote speaker, Vice President Mike Pence.
"... All told, these tax cuts ... are going to save the typical family of four in Wisconsin more than $2,500 a year on their taxes. And 90 percent of working families are going to see a tax cut reflected in their paychecks before the year is out, if you haven’t already," said the Vice President. "But, you know, that’s only half the story. You’ll also see more money in your pockets because of what our tax cuts have meant to job creators here in this state and all over the country."
