Restoring America’s Place in the World
Sen. John Thune, a member of the tax-writing Finance Committee, released a video entitled, “Restoring America’s Place in the World,” which highlights the Senate’s tax reform plan that passed on December 2. The video features portions of Thune’s speech, which he delivered just hours before the tax reform bill passed the Senate. It also includes clips of Thune visiting with South Dakotans throughout this past year.
“America has always been about opportunity,” Thune said. “A place where you can start from nothing and become anything. This bill is about helping Americans for the long term. It’s about restoring the American Dream. It’s about giving Americans access to the kinds of wages, jobs, and opportunities that will set them up for a secure and a more prosperous future. And it’s about sending a message to the world that America is finally serious about competing for 21st century jobs and innovation … I’m reminded of Ronald Reagan’s presidential ad quoting that it was morning in America again. It may not be morning yet, but the dawn is peaking over the horizon.”
