Paul Ryan won't commit to a revenue-neutral tax plan

  • Why Ryan, undercut by Trump, may actually emerge stronger

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said an outline of a plan would be unveiled during the work week beginning September 25, with congressional tax-writing committees crafting detailed legislation in the subsequent weeks. There's dozens. So - and that will be part of the tax reform plan. For example, NY state and California are among the very highest tax states, and they would suffer the most.

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.

The as-yet-undrafted bill to overhaul the tax code is the top priority for Trump and Republicans. "Tax reform" is a phrase that sounds great, but there would be real winners and losers if the effort gets rid of tax breaks for individuals and businesses.

On Wednesday, House Republican leadership was aggressively trying to convince skeptical members to get on board with a GOP-led effort on tax reform. They are hoping to make progress on forging the budget plan, which is required to stave off potential Democratic blocking tactics and pass the subsequent tax bill only with GOP votes. But Republicans have already rejected revenue-raising options, including a border adjustment import tax and a carbon tax.

So far, the White House and GOP negotiators have areas of overlap but also areas of disagreement in their tax cut approach. There has also been talk in the Senate about increasing tax rates on capital gains and dividends. Republicans have also talked about lowering corporate taxes.

Steven Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center think tank in Washington, said Trump was unlikely to raise taxes on investment income.

Republicans will publish details of their tax reform proposals the week beginning September 25th, House speaker Paul Ryan announced on Wednesday, as negotiations on revising the U.S. tax code gathered pace in Washington.

"You need border security and enforcement as part of any agreement", Ryan said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday said deporting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought into the country illegally is "not in our nation's interest", as he and President Donald Trump prepared to huddle with top Democrats to try to hash out a legislative fix. One of Trump's major campaign promises was building a wall the entire length of the U.S.

Trump added to the confusion about what the plan will include when he told reporters at a bipartisan tax meeting at the White House later in the day that wealthy Americans could see a tax increase. "I think that is something the Democrats are beginning to understand".

At his visit to Missouri, Trump had previously pitched a sweeping tax overhaul that he said would help the nation's ordinary people. "Now it might not work out".

"Pence, in a speech in West Virginia, pointed out the current tax code is nine times bigger than the bible, "'without any good stories, '" said Manchin, pointing out that Pence was right.

Trump blindsided Republican leaders last week by striking a deal with Schumer and Pelosi on the US debt limit and federal spending for three months.

HORSLEY: In an interview with The Associated Press today, House Speaker Ryan refused to guarantee the GOP tax plan would not add to the deficit.

There has been no comprehensive US tax code overhaul since 1986, and starkly different visions embraced by the two parties for how to move forward promise to make the task hard. They're going to say: "This produces so much growth".
