SEN. JOE MANCHIN: I want to work with the President, absolutely, a lot of Democrats, including Chuck Schumer, we’ve talked about that. We’ll work with him and sit down and find a pathway forward. I want to reduce the corporate tax, I want a territorial system, I want a system that works fairer, that on pass-throughs and capital gains, and gets rid of carried interest and things that basically should be thrown out that benefit only the one percent, or the one-tenth of one percent.
STEVE DOOCY: I have read a couple of the bills that you actually support, and it sounds like you and Donald Trump are on the same page?
SEN. SHERROD BROWN: Well, I read his Forbes interview, I think last week, and part of his speech last night, I listened to what his daughter says, and listen, the President wants to do two things: he wants to give significant tax relief to working families and he wants to make sure that corporations are patriotic, that corporations actually pay decent wages and keep their jobs in the country.
