President Trump always wanted to move faster on tax reform. Early in his presidency, he expressed frustration at having to spend time on trying to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, promising his supporters at one point that, once health care was out of the way, they could move on to the tax system. That day has finally arrived (after a few false promises), with Trump traveling to Indiana to announce the broad strokes of his proposal.
Happily, The Washington Post and our polling partners at ABC News were ready, with a new poll released Sunday that asked Americans’ opinions on the tax system. Buried in that poll was an interesting revelation about attitudes toward the amount of taxes paid by corporations, a central theme to Trump’s arguments on the subject. CONT.
