They recognize that this bold, pro-growth tax reform means more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks.

At his weekly press briefing today, Speaker Ryan discussed how the unified framework for tax reform will deliver more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks for hardworking Americans.

Today, a dozen leading conservative organizations urged Congress to pass a budget in order to move historic tax reform forward.

More jobs. Fairer taxes. Bigger paychecks.

Today at a press conference with Republican leaders, Speaker Ryan previewed the upcoming release of a unified framework for fixing the broken tax code.

Some great things happened in 1986, but thankfully, we've come a long way since then. Unfortunately, America's tax code has not kept up with the changing times. In fact, it has only gotten worse with all the special interest loopholes, carveouts, and regulations added over the last 31 years. As a result, the United States is falling behind the competition.

Here are eight throwbacks to remind us of some good things from 1986, but also to remind us why it is important to not stay stuck in the past.

"Tax reform can stop punishing companies for making things in America and selling them overseas.”

1986: The year Speaker Ryan got his driver’s license and the last time the Chicago Bears won the Super Bowl (SAD!). It’s also the year we last reformed our country’s tax code. And just like the rotary phone of the 80s, the American tax code is seriously outdated. As a result, we have a tax system that’s hurting American families and businesses, costing us jobs. These eight things have received a much-needed update, and it's time our tax code gets one, too.

This morning, Speaker Ryan joined AP’s Newsmaker interview series with Washington Bureau Chief Julie Pace to make the case for historic tax reform.
