For the first time in more than 30 years, Congress has an opportunity to fundamentally reform America’s tax code. Just as important in this generational opportunity is letting the middle class keep more of their paychecks and boosting the ability of small businesses to prosper.
The swamp’s Constitution is the tax code. Of course, the possibility of fundamental tax reform means that K Street special interests — the crocodiles swimming in the D.C. swamp — are working overtime to keep their carve-outs and loopholes.
The swamp’s army of lobbyists is descending on Capitol Hill and is fighting against what’s in the best interests of America’s economy. They’re fighting against fairness, economic upward mobility, innovation, and a more generally prosperous economy that the “big six” framework rolled out this week would accomplish.
