“We want to get [tax reform] done by the August recess,” Mnuchin added.Currently, Congress is scheduled to leave Washington D.C. on July 28 and return to Capitol Hill on September 5.As for the particulars of a plan, Mnuchin said that the border-adjustment tax that has been called “too complicated” by President Trump has some “very interesting aspects.” Mnuchin added that while the administration is “looking closely” at the issue, “there is a consensus on the majority of where we are on tax reform.”
Forget that border adjustment BS and pass a clean corporate and personal tax cut and pay for it in some other way. Or just use the dynamic scoring hand-wave to get past that hurdle. Or maybe introduce a VAT of some-sort like the Europeans do. In any case this is the only thing I want Congress to do so they need to hurry up and get it done.
