Pence touts tax overhaul for Iowa, Nebraska

US Vice President Mike Pence said that unless the Iran nuclear deal is fixed in the "coming months", the United States would withdraw from it.

Speaking before a packed room of enthusiastic supporters at the Mid-America Center, Pence outlined how the tax cuts approved by Congress and signed by President Trump late previous year are stimulating the economy, and putting more money in American's pockets.

"I'm proud to report that Americans are seeing their paychecks rise at any point in almost 10 years", said Pence.

"I want you to talk about that record of success, because it's not our administration's record, it's not the governor's record, it's all of our record of success".

And he claimed that the Republican tax cuts will save a typical Kentucky family $2,100 a year.

"Right here in Council Bluffs, your congressman, David Young, was telling me about a friend of his named Joe who's already getting more than a hundred dollars extra every month", he said, "money he's using to pay off his auto a little bit early".

After dinner, Ricketts made his pitch, saying a vote to put him back in the governor's office for four more years would be a vote to continue running Nebraska like a business.

Pence also touched on worldwide issues including North Korea saying "the era of strategic patience is over". "Unemployment hasn't been this low for 17 years and Iowa & Nebraska are tied for fourth lowest unemployment in America".

President Donald Trump will be hitting the road on Saturday in Pittsburgh at a rally for special election candidate Rick Saccone.

"But make no mistake about it, this is their last chance", the vice president said.

On Friday, the vice president will travel to Cleveland for a third America First Policies event.

"That's good news for working families", Pence said.

The GOP-controlled Iowa Legislature is considering changes to the state income tax law that supporters also say will stimulate growth but that Democratic critic warn may be too aggressive for a state that already is underfunding education, public safety and justice and health.
