Norquist: GOP Tax Reform is Job Creator


House Republicans are touting tax cuts for the middle-class, but who is the middle-class?

While Democrats like to talk about various income brackets and classes, Grover Norquist at Americans for Tax Reform argues this isn't Europe, we do things differently in the U.S.

“There are people who work every day, they have $24 million and they look in the mirror and say 'I'm middle-class, I work for a living,'” he says.  “And there are guys who make $30,000 or $40,000 a year and think 'I'm middle-class, I earned what I have.'”

Norquist supports the GOP plan, adding it will allow more people to earn what they have.

“The guy who pays 10 percent less in taxes, that's nice, but it's not as big of a deal as the guy who gets a job,” he says.  “That's why this tax reform is more focused on job creation and growth rather than this, that or the other thing.”

“The person who benefits the most is the person who didn't have a job during the Obama administration and gets one now, the person whose father didn't have a job during the Obama administration and gets one now, whose wife or brother didn't have a job and gets one now.”

He believes expanded benefits will outweigh the elimination of any credits or deductions.
