Trump coming to North Dakota Wednesday for tax-reform speech”

President Donald Trump has found at least one Democrat willing to entertain his tax reform pitch: Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, who plans to travel with him on Air Force One on Wednesday to a tax event in her home state.

Will be going to North Dakota today to discuss tax reform and tax cuts.

Even looking at the top marginal tax rate for the highest income earners, the United States ranks in the middle of the pack among OECD countries - with the 18th-highest marginal statutory rate. And the president will frame his plan as beneficial to everyday workers, even though it also includes large tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, as well as corporations.

North Dakota Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger, a Republican, said he hopes to hear that Trump's administration is making progress with Congress on a tax bill that can attract bipartisan support.

His administration will attempt to work with Congress in the coming months to reform the USA tax code. "And if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office", Trump said last week.

Senate Republicans failed to achieve the seven year campaign promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare in July.

Both Heitkamp and North Dakota Republican Sen.

The overall USA tax burden is actually one of the lowest among the 32 developed and large emerging-market economies tracked by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. While she narrowly won the state in 2012, she is personally popular and has been careful to stake out policy positions that don't stray too far from the state's right-leaning electorate.

Trump's trip takes him to friendly territory: He won North Dakota by 36 points a year ago and has championed policies that benefit its energy sector. Her only would-be opponent thus far, Republican state Sen. Some North Dakota lawmakers say the president's tax vision is just what their constituents need.

Trump will note on Wednesday that the last major tax overhaul, under President Reagan, received bipartisan support in 1986, White House officials said.

The White House did not release details to KX about whether the speech will be open to the public, or who else will be attending.
