WASHINGTON D.C. - Plans for reforming the federal tax code are announced by a team of U.S. Senators and that includes Ohio's Rob Portman.
The Cincinnati-area Republican says reforming the tax code is about dealing with the middle class squeeze. Portman calls that very real, and part of the problem is health care.
"This is going to give people the opportunity to have a healthier family budget. Middle class tax cuts are a part of this," Portman said during an event announcing the framework.
Portman made his remarks alongside several other senators and congressmen. He says reforming the tax code will bring back hundreds of millions of dollars, and jobs, from overseas. That, he says, will lead to more investment in opportunity.
