Paul Ryan wants to 'start 2018 with a new tax system'

Paul Ryan wants to 'start 2018 with a new tax system'

Despite a packed legislative calendar, House Speaker Paul Ryan says he's still confident that Congress will have tax reform legislation on President Donald Trump's desk before the end of 2017.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is backing off months of promises that the Republicans' tax plan won't add to the nation's ballooning deficit.

But legislators have not said what tax breaks they plan to eliminate to offset the revenue lost from steep tax rate cuts, which some economists have said could reduce government receipts by more than $5 trillion over 10 years.

Objections also threaten from the GOP's seemingly shrinking ranks of deficit hawks if Ryan, Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell do try to move forward with a tax plan that could cost hundreds of billions of dollars, without paying for it with cuts in federal spending or some new sources of revenue. Sen. And some conservatives were voicing concerns about Trump's newfound fondness for making deals with Democrats, as he did last week on the debt ceiling with House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California. "I don't understand why there are no details, especially since our leadership said we would have details on tax reform months ago".

President Trump pushed Congress to pass a comprehensive measure to overhaul the tax code in late August, but didn't offer specific plans.

Rep. David Brat, another conservative member of the House Freedom Caucus, said that he is hopeful that whatever is released on September 25 will give him enough level of detail to allow him to support the budget.
