Columnist: House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady solution to ‘growth-igniting tax reform’

Pulitzer Prize-winning political journalist George Will in a recent syndicated column says House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) holds the key to unlocking America’s earning potential.
