Why Ryan, undercut by Trump, may actually emerge stronger

Ryan AP Interview

According to The Hill, Ryan called Wednesday's meeting at the request of Democrats after Trump canceled DACA, which shields some 690,000 young illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

"It's the beginning of a very important process to achieve, for the first time in a generation, overhauling our tax system and giving middle-class families a much-deserved break", Ryan told reporters after the GOP meeting Wednesday.

Asked twice whether he would insist the emerging tax plan won't pile more billions onto the $20 trillion national debt, Ryan passed up the chance to affirm that commitment.

"On the week of Sept 25, there's going to be an outline that is released which reflects the consensus of the tax-writing committees - Ways and Means and Finance - and the administration", Ryan said at a news conference.

The White House says President Donald Trump's dinner with Republican and Democratic senators to talk taxes was "highly productive" and will "spur constructive discussion".

"The problem here is we don't have a clue what's in the tax plan", said Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va.

Motel 6 & Guest Lists
An immigration attorney, Denise Aguilar, tells the New Times that some of her clients have heard these rumors, as well. In short: If you live in Arizona and you're an undocumented immigrant, better not book a room at a Motel 6.

The long list of difficulties has led some analysts to conclude that Congress is likelier to settle on straightforward tax cuts than on full-blown reform - if it passes anything at all.

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus have said they won't vote to pass a budget out of the House until they get more details on tax changes.

Ryan said that Republicans hope tax reform could lead to 3% economic growth. "And so that's what we're going to give a shot", he said.

"Unfortunately the Republican tax principles we have seen so far have been largely vacuous, and I fear their updated framework to be released later this month will only be more of the same", Representative Richard Neal of MA, the top Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, said in a statement.

The "Better Way" campaign manifesto Ryan released a year ago stated that the GOP "envisions tax reform that is revenue neutral". In Wednesday morning tweets, Trump promised "the biggest Tax Cut & Tax Reform package in the history of our country" and urged Congress to move fast. "I don't think it's in our interest to be negotiating through the media". By week's end, the men feeling the lash were Mr. Trump's Treasury secretary and budget director. "And I don't want to open the door to that until we see what this tax plan looks like".

"In order to get the size - the magnitude of the reductions that we want in the corporate and the individual rates and in order to get the sweeping reforms that we so desperately need - you absolutely will see an increase in the deficit in the short term", he said.
