Paul Ryan is determined to reform taxes and not let a 'once-in-a-generation moment slip'



House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will speak on Tuesday before the National Association of Manufacturers' summit in Washington, D.C, to push his new tax reform agenda.

According to  The Hill, Ryan is not expected to describe the details of a tax bill. But his office said he "will talk about what tax reform looks like, not just the benefits."

Ryan's speech comes as House Republicans add more provisions to a tax reform bill that they hope to complete this year.

"We are going to get this done in 2017. We need to get this done in 2017. We cannot let this once-in-a-generation moment slip," Ryan said in prepared remarks, according to Politico

"Transformational tax reform can be done, and we are moving forward. Full speed ahead."

Last month, the White House announced a blueprint of a tax reform plan, which aims to reduce most Americans’ tax filings to a single page and make businesses more competitive in the international economy.

“It’s a great plan. It’s going to put people back to work,” President Trump said.

People turned to Twitter to voice their skepticism about Ryan's tax reform.
