Tax Reform for the First Time Since 1986 | Speaker.gov

Yesterday, Speaker Ryan participated in The New York Times’ TimesTalks series with Deputy Washington Editor Jonathan Weisman to make the case for historic tax reform. The speaker argued that America should wake up on New Year’s Day 2018 with a more simpleaffordable, and competitive tax code that will create American jobs and grow our economy:

“This hasn’t been done since ’86, but they’ve been spending the entire year working on this. And we came to consensus between the House, the Senate, and the White House in the middle of the summer on how basically to do this. . . . We believe because our tax code is so bad right now—it’s literally basically dead last in the industrialized world with respect to competitiveness—there is so much room for improvement to get our country and our tax code from the back of the pack in the industrialized world to the front of the pack in the industrialized world. And that’s basically our goal.”
