We are pleased that House Republicans have made tax reform a key part of their “Better Way” agenda. Reforming our broken tax code is critical to promoting economic growth and making American businesses competitive.
We are concerned that the policies in the plan may not add up, in that the plan appears to rely on optimistic estimates of economic growth and changes in the baseline to achieve deficit neutrality.
But we welcome this blueprint and continue to believe that tax reform is an important economic priority, and look forward to working with members of both parties to make sure that tax reform can simplify the tax code, be appropriately financed, and promote economic growth.
