President Donald Trump calls the House passage of the $1.5 trillion tax package "a big step" toward delivering on the Republican Party's promise of tax cuts by year's end.

Michigan’s U.S. Representatives voted along party lines. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the tax bill Thursday by a 227 to 205 margin. Thirteen Republicans voted against the package. None were from Michigan.

U.S. Representative Bill Huizenga of Zeeland explains the plan does three things.

Prior to hosting a town hall Thursday evening at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, I sat down with Representative Justin Amash and asked him these questions: 

Do you support President Donald Trump's corporate tax cut plan? 

Rep. Amash: “Corporate taxes should be cut, individual taxes should be cut, our current tax code has a lot of corporate welfare in it, where some companies get a lot of benefits, and other companies don’t, so we should try to level the playing field and keep taxes low for as many people as possible.”

President Donald Trump says America's withdrawal from the Paris climate change accord, “Is less about the climate and more about other countries obtaining a financial advantage over the United States."

The President would later say the U.S. could try to re-enter the international climate agreement sealed in Paris if the deal were more favorable to Americans.

U.S. Representative Justin Amash is home this week visiting Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District. He’s hosting a town hall meeting tonight in Battle Creek. Last night the Cascade Township republican held a public forum at Grand Rapid’s Ottawa Hills High School auditorium. Before the event began, WGVU sat down for a one-on-one interview with Congressman Amash discussing health care and how he approaches his constituents attending what have lately become heated town hall meetings.

If the James Comey memo allegations prove to be accurate, it would be grounds to impeach President Donald Trump. That is what U.S. House representative Justin Amash (R-MI) told reporters Wednesday according to the Washington based news publication The Hill. 

A memo reportedly written by former FBI Director James Comey indicates that President Trump asked Comey to drop an investigation into National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

"Yes," Amash responded when asked by reporters if that was enough to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.  

For the third day in row, Michigan Representative Justin Amash hosted a town hall Wednesday evening in West Michigan, the latest taking place at the Van Singel Arts Center at Bryon Center's High School. Before fielding questions from the audience, Amash began the evening by addressing his concern over President Donald Trump authorizing a military strike on a Syrian government airbase in response to a chemical weapons attack allegedly orchestrated by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
