Rep. Kevin Brady: Ways and Means Committee ‘laser focused’ on passing Trump’s tax-cut blueprint
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) Tuesday says committee members are intent – even ‘laser focused’ – on enacting by the end of the year President Donald J. Trump’s proposed tax cuts, which include slashing personal income-tax rates and the corporate tax.
House leaders have said they want to pass a tax package in 2017, and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Kevin Brady said Tuesday they’re “laser focused” on getting it done this year.
“The Trump team feels the same way, and the Senate as well,” Mr. Brady said on Fox News.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, however, said recently he would want to try to finish it “this Congress,” setting a much longer ceiling for action.
President Trump throughout the course of his election campaign made it clear he understands how convoluted our tax system is and that he’s committed to helping us streamline the process. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge our lawmakers to create a simpler, fairer, flatter tax code!
