Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, said that President Donald Trump's tax reform proposal released Wednesday can achieve 4 percent growth.
Norquist, speaking at a Capitol Hill press conference Thursday with members of Congress, said tax reform is essentially a jobs bill and will help those who haven't been able to get a job in the last eight years.
"We have a jobs bill in front of us if we keep these rates down, we'll go to 4 percent growth, that's what we had under Reagan," Norquist said. "The big winner of tax reform and tax reduction are the millions of Americans who could not get a job in the last eight years and now will get jobs."
Norquist says the Republican votes are there in the House and in the Senate to enact the outline released yesterday, but Democrats have no intention of reforming the tax code.
