President Trump was thanked by a number of Americans for his tax cuts at an event in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday.
One woman’s story of struggling was amazing.
“My husband, Kevin, was–he worked in the steel mill, and it closed down in 2012 due to the company going bankrupt. So he was then–there were a lot of people who actually lost their jobs at that time. Our whole area was saturated with unemployed, and then he spent the next 1 1/2 years retraining, and then at the same time searching for a job.”
“Fortunately, I was employed for one of those years,” she continued. “The first year of it. I then became legally blind and could no longer work, couldn’t drive. And we have no transportation, public, in our area.”
“Also, so essentially what happened was we fell on such hard times that we had to surrender a car to be repossessed. We almost lost our home, and then we struggled every day to make ends meet. We basically lived off of my credit cards and both of our unemployment, which still wasn’t enough to cover. Finally, he found a job, January of 2014. He’s still with them. But because of the tax cut and the job plan, they’re taking out a lot less taxes then what they had been prior to before. We have actually seen in several checks $200 to $300 less taxes than what they did before the plan.”
The audience erupted into applause.
“And that’s–those are real numbers. I actually went back and looked at his income and the taxes before and after, and I was amazed. So it really is working,” she added.
