President Trump and Republican leaders have drawn up a tax plan.

As NPR reports, the plan is set to be the most sweeping overhaul of the tax code in 30 years. Aiming to boost the economy, this will include deep cuts to individual and corporate tax rates. Trump will promote the plan Wednesday, on the fairgrounds of Indiana State University.

Larry speaks to economists today to learn more about the ins and outs of the plan.
