BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. - First daughter, Ivanka Trump, is hitting the road to help her father sell his tax plan.
Her first stop was at a forum right here in Bucks County.
It's their money and some want to know how much of it they will be able to keep.
"Listen to see what they have to offer," said Maria Kutz, from Whitehall Township. "What the whole tax reform is all about."
Others say they've checked out the Senate budget plan that is seen as a precursor to tax reform and they are concerned about possible cuts to programs that benefit older Americans.
"Struggling around health care and seeing cuts in programs that help a lot of people just bother me dramatically," said protester, Santo Gairo.
President Donald Trump is hoping to get tax reform passed by the end of the year.
His daughter and advisor, Ivanka Trump, told a crowd in Richboro, Bucks County the new tax code is way overdue.
"People, Americans, want tax reform," said Ivanka Trump. "They want simplicity, it's too complicated."
Trump, accompanied by U.S. treasurer, Jovita Carranza, says the new code will double the standard deduction, increase some child tax credits, and cap certain small business taxes.
Moves that will help the middle class, a priority according to the speakers.
"Each family could realize about a $4,000 return, additional in their income," said Carranza.
When asked about how they can insure the reform will pass, both women say that is why they are on this tour speaking to people.
The thought is simplifying the tax code will put everyone on an equal playing field.
"We have to create jobs, we have to create growth, but we also have to support that American workers family," said Trump.
It's official; the newly formed East Greenville Borough Police Department in Montgomery County has its headquarters.Read More »
