"Tax reform is the next big GOP push.  Here's what to expect" PBS NewsHour 8/3/2017


SUMMARY:  Republican leaders are starting to make decisions on how they will approach tax reform, an issue that's equally important as health care to Republicans, and one that's arguably even tougher to solve.  Lisa Desjardins sits down with Judy Woodruff to walk through where efforts stand.

LISA DESJARDINS:  First point, Judy.  This is a process very different than health reform, than health care.

First of all, let’s look at who Republicans are using right now, who is determining this.  It is the big six leaders.  That means two leaders from the White House, the treasury secretary and also the president’s national economic adviser, then Leader McConnell in the Senate, as well as the chair of the Senate Finance Committee, and then Speaker Ryan himself and his tax-writing chairman.
