We're doing this the regular order way. It takes time, but trust me, we're going to get this over the finish line. We're not doing this for political benefit, we're doing this to help improve people's lives. We're doing this to get this country back on track. We're doing this to get economic growth.
Look, we haven't had a 3% economy in about a decade. Do you know what happens to a country that grows so slowly? Wages are flat, living standards get flat, economic anxiety and security goes up. That's what's happening in country today, and you wonder why we have a lot of anxiety and a lot of polarization in American?
I would argue when people are really worried about whether they can put food on a table or pay the energy bill next week, next month, that's a real problem in America. The purpose of this legislation is focused on not giving the highest income earners the biggest tax breaks.
The purpose on this legislation is giving middle income tax families a break.
