Grimes County’s Congressman recently spent an hour discussing the concerns of scores of local manufacturing employees during a townhall meeting at Navasota’s Ergo Genesis plant.
And with the new Trump Administration coming into being, Kevin Brady reports the vast majority of those who took part seemed excited about what’s in store.
He says that on tax codes and health care and red tape, and also their prospects for 2017. They think the economy can get better, he continues, and they are pretty optimistic about growth this year.
Admitting to keeping his remarks short because he was standing between nearly a hundred Ergo Genesis workers and pizza, Brady says they seemed to be most eager to hear about the big tax changes Trump has promised.
They love being able to file their Income Taxes on Post Cards every year, he says, they were very excited we are going to be ending the tax on Made in America products, and that for first time we are going to be taxing foreign products and our Made in America products equally.
The Congressman said there was lots of interest in Trump’s Twitter account and everyone’s looking forward to making their own judgements about out 45th President. but even tho most have health insurance, Brady said some expressed concern over possible changes to the nation’s health care law.
Brady said these workers are smart and just want government to start working for them, rather than against them.
As for Brady, he plans to be back in the County of Grimes next month for the 12th Annual Reagan Dinner, which he describes as one of the best ones in our District.
