Trump Eyes Tax-Code Overhaul, With Emphasis on Middle-Class Break

(Worthy News) – On the day the Senate moved on long-promised health-care legislation, President Donald Trump signaled his next priority: overhauling the tax code to push corporate rates down and give middle-class taxpayers a break, even if it means some of the wealthiest pay more.

“I have wealthy friends that say to me, ‘I don’t mind paying more tax,’ ” the president said.
