LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Tax cuts work

AP

Print Article

Gov. Eric Greitens recently unveiled a plan to cut Missouri taxes by a collective $800 million. As evidenced by the recent federal tax cuts, an $800 million tax cut would jumpstart Missouriís businesses, families and overall economy.

Between bonus checks, wage increases and lower prices, well over three million individuals across the country have already been positively impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Even in Missouri, we are seeing strong examples of economic growth. One of the most recent announcements came from Dynamic Fastener in Raytown. Due to the recent tax cut, the company will offer $1,000 bonuses and open up a new paint shop, creating new jobs in the process.

Tax cuts work. Iím thankful they were passed on the federal level, and I am optimistic about Missouriís future if they are also passed here at home.

Kalena Bruce is a resident of Stockton, Missouri.
