    Getting To Real Tax Reform: Don’t Mess...


    In pursuit of major economic growth-inducing tax reform and simpler, fairer personal taxes for our nation, we now have the details. The Ryan-Brady version came out of the House Ways and Means Committee on Nov. 2 and the Senate version was presented by Sen. Orrin Hatch and his Senate Finance Committee one day after.

    These plans differ in many (minor) respects but are the…


    Tax reform even Democrats can love

    Low- and middle-income Americans have the most to gain from growth

    Congress Makes Big Progress On Pro-Growth Tax...

    LEWIS K. UHLER and PETER J. FERRARA 10/12/2017

    The so-called “do nothing Congress” is making amazing progress toward major, pro-growth tax reform. Last week the House passed a budget (first time in over a decade), enabling us to use reconciliation (51 votes) in the Senate for tax reform. Just before that, the Trump administration joined congressional tax writing committees to issue a “Unified, Pro-Growth, Republican Tax Reform Plan.”

    The setback we experienced in repealing and replacing Obamacare was disappointing, but instructive. Important elements of our society at large were not convinced and we found the same with our conservative base – AND we didn’t have in place the support system (“Healthcare Reform Truth Squad”) that understood the issues and could help us. We must change this for tax reform with a “Tax Reform Truth Squad.”
