Where’s the Tax Reform?

Financial Expert Dan Celia: With All the Distractions in Washington, Lawmakers Are Missing the Big Picture on Tax Reform, Which Will Invigorate Economy

PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—In 1984, Clara Peller became an advertising sensation for Wendy’s with her pressing question about hamburgers that scrimp on the meat: “Where’s the beef?!”

Now, more than 30 years later, financial expert and nationally syndicated radio and television host Dan Celia has a similar question for lawmakers: “Where’s the tax reform?!”

“If we want a real, sustainable rise in the markets to continue, we must forge ahead with tax reform,” Celia wrote in a new op-ed for Townhall.com, where he is a regular contributor. “If we want jobs to grow, we need tax reform. Real full employment? Tax reform is the answer. Labor participation rates climbing to 21st-century levels will be a result of tax reform. Real growth in wages, increased retail sales, return of the 40-hour workweek and a reduction in the part-time workforce—all from tax reform.

“Add to the tax reform benefits list,” he continued, “a manufacturing revolution, companies expanding, American companies and organizations staying in America, lower poverty rates, lower dependence on food stamps, stabilized and healthy commodity prices, a strengthened Social Security system, stronger Medicare and Medicaid programs, a flourishing legal immigration system, the end of the demonization of profits, no more regulatory burdens that shut down companies, expansion in small businesses and—most important of all—the American people feeling good about going back to work, providing for their families, and having some discretionary income.”

The only thing that will matter in dealing with all the problems at hand is the foundation underneath it all, Celia added. This firm foundation that positively impacts the American people and the nation will be the legacy of Donald Trump.
