Trump and Rand Paul to Push Massive Tax Reform Bill

After the Obamacare repeal efforts failed in the Senate at the hands of 3 Republican Moderates, The GOP faced a tough choice. Continue to swing for the fences and attempt to repeal the ACA yet again, or to turn things around by rewriting the nation's tax code. It seems they have chosen the latter. Wednesday, President Trump traveled to Missouri to deliver his initial pitch for tax reform.

Trump outlined 4 main principles or goals of this initiative. 1) “we need a tax code that is simple, fair and easy to understand”. Americans spend about 9 billion hours complying with the tax code, costing the economy 400 billion dollars according to Forbes, so this is an obvious reform priority. 2) “we need a competitive tax code that creates more jobs and higher wages for more Americans” most likely referring to the United States corporate tax rates, which are among the highest in the industrialized world. 3)“tax relief for middle-class families” most Republicans want across the board tax cuts, and economic populists especially want middle-class tax cuts, so for the Republicans, this is a no-brainer.

“we want to bring back trillions of dollars in wealth that’s parked overseas” referring to the fact that, by many reports, US companies have 2 trillion dollars sitting overseas. While Trump was making his pitch for tax reform, Prominent GOP Sen. Rand Paul wrote an op-ed that was published on CNN titled “I’m ready to fight for tax reform”. In the article, Senator Paul discusses how Trump should lead with simple strong ideas and fight emphatically for them without letting others agendas get in the way.

Senator Paul is obviously referring to the process in which major decisions are deferred to party leaders and the rest of the party gets whipped in line. If Republicans want to turn things around and not face humiliation like they did during the healthcare debacle, then Trump and Paul need to work together and avoid the regular order, in which we let Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell call the shots.
