GOP leaders are feeling really good and confident on a new tax reform project and Thursday Vice President Mike Pence met with local business leaders, community officials and Wisconsin families to discuss that reform.

Pence said it will be huge for the middle class, American workers and American Manufacturing. 

Before talking the new tax reform plan Pence and Gov. Scott Walker toured Weldall Manufacturing for about 20 minutes,  accompanied by Weldall CEO David Bahl.

The company is a heavy duty welding manufacturer that also does large fabrication projects. After the tour Pence and Walker led a roundtable discussion with Wisconsin business owners and families. Pence talked about plans to lower taxes for working families and businesses just like Weldall.

The Geldreich family from Washington County who was able to sit down and talk about tax cuts hope the plan comes through. They have plans with the money they'll be able to save.

“We’re excited about the new plan, it looks like it’s going to be very beneficial to businesses lowering their tax burden and giving them the ability to hire new workers and expand their businesses,” said Jim Geldreich.  “I think everyone is looking forward to having more of their own, being able to keep more of their own money and spend it on whatever they need to,” added his wife Ann.

Pence said this new plan will also eliminate tax loopholes for wealthy Americans.
