It appears that President Trump may have learned a valuable lesson from the failure of the two attempts to repeal and place Obamacare to pass the Senate. He basically left the entire matter to the Senate Republicans to work out. They obviously failed, so when it comes to the push for tax reform, and tax reduction the President is using the “bully pulpit” and taking his case directly to the American people.
He started in Pennsylvania with an audience made up of friendly voters, many of them involved in the trucking industry that will benefit from the cuts in taxes for businesses and the abolition of the estate tax. He carefully laid out the meat of the proposals and that approach may ultimately make the difference.
