Heitkamp, Cramer plan to join Trump in North Dakota

Heitkamp, Cramer plan to join Trump in North Dakotaā€¯

Both of North Dakota's US senators will make the trip to North Dakota with President Donald Trump on Air Force One. Burgum, a first-term Republican, said the US tax code is "long overdue for reform".

"We need to end the marriage tax penalty, and we also need to end the child tax penalty".

In an effort to shift momentum in his favor, President Trump is now pursuing a new path: tax reform.

Heitkamp is just one of several Democrats up for reelection next year hailing from states Trump won in 2016 that the White House hopes to pressure into backing the tax reform push.

"Trump's visit to North Dakota is yet another dog and pony show to promote the failing oil and gas industry, while ignoring the Indigenous communities that united at Standing Rock to fight for justice. Look at Ivanka", he said during a tax reform speech, later explaining why his daughter accompanied him to Bismarck.

Also joining Trump on Air Force One on Wednesday will be North Dakota's other senator, John Hoeven, and its sole House member, Kevin Cramer, both Republicans, as well as Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, the White House said.

Trump has identified tax reform as his next top legislative priority, and congressional leaders have been developing to introduce now that the summer recess is over. And that is not the rate that many companies in the US end up paying.

Trump is hoping to gain Democratic support for a proposal that most likely will revolve around slashing tax rates paid by businesses to try to make the USA more globally competitive.

Heitkamp's term expires next year and she has not announced if she is running for reelection. He said he'd be getting into "great detail" on the plan in the next two weeks. She knows which side her political bread is buttered on, but the move has gone over like a lead balloon among Heitkamp's fellow Democrats. But she said Trump has proposed policies "that would hurt North Dakota's economy", such as cutting crop insurance.

It was at the 1964 National Republican Convention in San Francisco when I heard President Reagan talk about tax burdens and how no nation in history has ever survived a tax burden that overtops a third of its national average income.
