WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is making his final pitch for the Republican tax plan in a speech to the American people.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters says Trump will deliver a speech Wednesday on how tax reform will help taxpayers and their families.

Trump and Republican leaders in Congress have promoted a massive tax plan by promising the tax cuts will boost the economy. The $1.5 trillion House and Senate tax bills combine steep tax cuts for corporations with modest reductions for individuals.

Republicans are eager to prove they can get something done after they failed to dismantle former Barack Obama’s health care law earlier this year.
