Leader McCarthy on Fox & Friends: ‘This is an American Tax Plan’
On speeding up the pace to finish tax reform:
“We talked with Senate Budget [Committee] prior to producing their [budget] to make changes to theirs. We will take that Senate budget up this Thursday. And what that means is that’s two weeks faster when we can begin tax reform. We had a conference call this week and we had the President and the Vice President on it, and really when you look at the budget, it is the mechanism to get us tax reform. The sooner we get tax reform and growth in this country, the sooner we help those hard-working taxpayers across America.”
On how the budget is the first step to tax reform.
“We work with our entire conference the whole time, but we also work with the Senate. Yes, the House budget is more conservative. But remember what the budget allow us to do here. It is the mechanism for tax reform. This is exactly what the President said on that conference call with all of our members. A vote for the budget is vote for tax reform. It is the first phase to get it moving. By doing this, we will take off two more weeks to start faster to get tax reform done before the end of this year.”
