VP Mike Pence touts tax cuts in Detroit: The proof is in your paycheck

- Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Detroit Friday, talking tax cuts and the economy.

Although that was the focus of his visit to the Westin Book Cadillac, he also touched on immigration, ISIS and keeping our children safe in school.

"We've got President Trump in the White House and we will make America safe again," he said. 

Pence acknowledged another school shooting at Central Michigan's campus today. 

"Our hearts go out to the fallen and to everyone in the Mount Pleasant community that has been impacted," he said.

America has been asking for more than sentiment to combat school shootings like the one in Parkland Florida, leaving 17 dead. 

Pence echoes the President's position.

"School safety is now the top priority of the Trump administration," he said.

The America First Policies was focused on selling the new tax plan and Pence did. He called it "The largest tax cuts and tax reform in American history."

"That's promises made, promises kept," he said.

But on the Vice President's agenda, the Supreme Court, the Iran nuclear deal, North Korea, deregulation, and jobless claims - which are the lowest they have been since 1969. 

"MIchigan is leading the American comeback like never before," he said.

Outside the Westin, protesters held signs calling for higher wages and support for the Affordable Health Care Act. 

A February Survey Monkey New York Times poll found that Americans are split down the middle when it comes to the new tax law. 

The midterm elections are quickly approaching and it is likely that Pence came here to talk about the administration's wins was very important.
