Letter: On Tax Day, U.S. economy is booming

To the editor:

Since the 2016 election, businesses nationwide have created nearly three million new jobs, with 3,330 of those jobs in energy and resource development coming from North Dakota alone. As Vice President Mike Pence recently said to North Dakotans: "The American economy is booming."

The results speak for themselves. In part because of tax cuts, North Dakota is now tied for the second lowest unemployment rate in the country. And this is just the beginning.

As Tax Day approaches, North Dakota families should see an estimated tax cut of about $2,600. The take-home message is simple: Tax cuts work, and they'll keep working for years to come.
