Senator David Perdue: Making America More Competitive Is A Top Priority

“Lowering our corporate tax rate will put U.S. companies back on a level playing field.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, comments on President Trump’s speech on tax reform in North Dakota:

“President Trump is right that a top priority when it comes to fixing our tax system is to make American businesses more competitive with the rest of the world. We’ve got to lower our corporate tax rate. We also have several trillion dollars stuck overseas in U.S. profits because of our repatriation tax. Getting rid of that archaic tax in its entirety and lowering our corporate tax rate will put U.S. companies back on a level playing field. President Trump has my full support as he continues to make America more competitive and simplify our tax system for everyone.”
