MILWAUKEE- Vice President Mike Pence told a crowd in Milwaukee that the American economy is growing.
"Jobs are back, confidence is back and under President Donald Trump America is back," Pence told a friendly crowd at the Wisconsin Center. "And we're just getting started."
Pence spoke following a roundtable on the federal tax cuts signed into law late last year.
He touted the impact of the tax cuts on Wisconsin's economy.
"Wages are already on the rise because the tax cuts mean more income," the Vice President said.
The panel discussion beforehand featured U.S. Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), Foxconn executive Louis Woo, and Alfredo Ortiz, CEO of the Job Creators Network.
"Overtaxation was one of the biggest things keeping people from investing in their businesses," said Ortiz.
"With the tax cuts that happened last year, and now that small businesses owners are starting to understand them, we're going to see hiring continue to grow and people investing more back into their businesses," he added.
Wednesday's event was hosted by America First Policies, a group formed to promote President Donald Trump's policies.
People who listened to Pence's speech said they liked what they heard.
Trisha Thacker, who's family runs JTK Trucking in West Bend, said she thinks the changes to the U.S. taxation system that Trump signed into law last year are already stimulating the economy in Wisconsin.
