Inhofe Talks Tax Reform and National Defense on the Radio

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) spoke on the radio yesterday about prominent issues including tax reform, national defense and deregulation.



Sen. Inhofe and Hugh Hewitt talked national defense and the Hewitt Amendment, an amendment to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that Inhofe introduced in the Senate after taking in to consideration what he previously heard on The Hugh Hewitt Show.

On the Hewitt Amendment:

“I think it is ingenious, and it is the only thing out there. I cannot think of one thing out there that is going to have an immediate thrust of generation of revenue in the first few weeks, or actually, days.”

Sen. Inhofe and Tod Tucker of KOKC in Oklahoma City talked missile defense, the Oklahoma National Guard and tax reform.

On tax reform:

“It is the first time since 1986 that we have done something rational with our tax overhaul.”

Sen. Inhofe and Ron Hays of the Oklahoma Farm Report talked tax reform, the death tax and the success of Scott Pruitt’s EPA.

On Scott Pruitt’s work to roll back WOTUS:

“He is going to get it done as fast as we can and we are directing the EPA to rescind it … this is going to happen.”

Sen. Inhofe and Rick Brady of KGYN in Guymon talked tax reform, deregulation and missile defense.

On the threat of North Korea:

“It is a scary thing, the threat we are facing now. I think of it in terms of my 20 kids and grandkids, Rick. You know, that—that is something I never thought we would have to face in my lifetime, but it is here now.”

Sen. Inhofe and Phillip Larsen of Crossover Radio talked the Museum of the Bible, tax reform, working across party lines and DACA.

On tax reform:

“In 1981 … Reagan came along and changed all the structures down. … The result of that was huge increases in revenue coming in. … The problem was, that the Democrats, who are the bigger spending party, they were in charge of the House and the Senate during that time. So as more revenue came in, they increase spending. So, the revenue came up, but the deficit still increased at that time. This is going to be different … As the revenue comes in, we are going to reduce the debt, we are going to be doing things, and also repairing our military at the same time. So, we are in the midst of something huge that is going on right now, Phillip. …”
