With November’s midterm elections just around the corner, House Republicans are hoping tax cuts are the key to keeping their majority in the House and Senate.

On Monday, GOP lawmakers unveiled legislation to make permanent the individual tax cuts and pass-through business deductions that were set to expire in 2026 as part of the massive tax reform enacted late last year.

WIBC hosts Hammer and “Fake Nigel” of the Hammer and Nigel Show talked with Indiana Representative Jim Banks Tuesday about what’s in the tax cuts 2.0 legislation.

Plus, “Fake Nigel” drilled down on concerns about the rising national debt, bloated spending, and the potential drag that could have on the U.S. economy moving forward.

And of course, Congressman Banks shared his memories of September 11th, which occurred 17 years ago Tuesday.
