Senator Jim Talent of Missouri, in re: The man from Missouri speaks facts. Missouri is an agricultural and manufacturing state with a good tourism component. We have upward pressure on wages – we’re sharing in the general prosperity. Tax relief was important on both the supply and the demand sides, but especially Trump’s promise not to issue unpredictable and [negative] regulations. People are converting to full-time jobs with benefits, which is hugely important if you have children.
Addendum: "Supply-side economics is a macroeconomic theory arguing that economic growth can be most effectively created by lowering taxes and decreasing regulation. According to supply-side economics, consumers will then benefit from a greater supply of goods and services at lower prices and employment will increase. It was started by economist Robert Mundell during the Ronald Reagan administration. The Laffer curve is one of the main theoretical constructs of supply-side economics, the idea that lower tax rates when tax level is too high will actually boost government revenue because of higher economic growth."
