Representative Chris Stewart was back in Utah Thursday night holding two town hall meetings in Tooele County and Bountiful.
The congressman talked about a host of issues including North Korea, the economy, healthcare and public lands.
While the effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate in September, he’s confident a Republican plan will get passed at some point.
He said the main focus right is tax reform, simplifying the tax code and reducing corporate tax rate. It’s something he believes will get widespread support.
“I think we’re going to have bipartisan support for it. Because this isn’t tax cuts for just Republicans this is tax cuts for every American. There are a lot of Democrats who want to go home and say yes we cut your taxes,” said Stewart.
The Senate passed a budget bill allowing the process for reform to get underway. Details in that bill still have to be approved.
