Reform Or No Reform?

Whatever happened to tax reform?
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said late last month that the administration wants to wrap up a long-held GOP goal of overhauling the tax code before lawmakers leave for a monthlong break.

“So we are committed to pass tax reform,” he told CNBC. “We want to get this done by the August recess.”

The Senate is tentatively scheduled to leave town by July 31st and return during the first week of September.

Pressed about when he thought lawmakers would be able to complete tax reform, the Senate's top Republican demurred.

"It is complicated. All of those discussions are already under way," McConnell said. "How do you craft it?"
The way the voters expected you to?
