President Trump Visits Missouri


President Trump visited Missouri this week to promote Tax Cut Legislation. 

Pro-life issues in the tax bill include: the adoption tax credit and a provision recognizing the unborn child for 529 college savings plans. An amendment may be offered for an unborn child tax credit, and a repeal of the Obamacare mandate may also be included. 

Watch for updates as the bill is finalized to see what makes it into this important bill.
