Ryan: Republicans Agree on Tax Reform, Confident It Will Pass This Year

Ryan: Republicans Agree on Tax Reform, Confident It Will Pass This Year
Republicans have an ambitious agenda over the next four months, minus August, when they’ll be on vacation again.

But House Speaker Paul Ryan said he believes lawmakers can get it all done by September 30, the end of the Fiscal ’17: “We walk and chew gum at the same time,” he told Fox News’s Bret Baier Wednesday night.

One of the Republican priorities is tax reform, and while passage may be “a little bumpy,” Ryan said Republicans agree on this topic, unlike health care:

We all agree on tax reform. We are wired as Republicans with the same DNA, which is stop overtaxing manufacturers and producers. Stop hurting families with an abusive IRS and a complicated tax code. So we are in such agreement on the critical principles of tax reform, and we also know that this is key for economic growth. 

Getting our regulatory agenda through, which we’re well on our way to doing; and reforming and overhauling our tax system, are the two crown jewels of getting America's economy growing faster and getting people to work, getting faster wage growth. We know that this is important, so we’re dedicated to it, and I am very confident we will get it done this year.
