Vice President Mike Pence spent some time promoting tax reform in his home state.
Pence was joined by Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb on Thursday as he took part in a round-table with business owners at a graphics company near Indianapolis.
Holcomb praised Pence’s work when he was governor on tax reform in the Hoosier state.
He said the results have helped break a record for job creation, and a federal tax break would help continue that trend.
Pence later told the crowd both families and businesses will be winners after Congress passes a bill to simplify federal taxes.
“The tax code is 10 times the length of the Bible with none of the good news,” said Pence. “With the leadership of President Donald Trump, I believe we’re going to pass the largest tax cut in American history and we’re going to pass it this year so let’s get to work.”
The House has been hard at work this week marking-up its version of the tax bill, while Senate Republicans revealed their draft on Thursday.
