“I can’t imagine we’re not going to get some votes from some of these Democrats,” Ryan said on Thursday.
Speaker Paul Ryan expressed optimism that the Republican tax reform plan will receive support from Democrats, saying that he couldn’t imagine Democrats would vote against the interests of their constituents during an event at the Heritage Foundation on Thursday.
“With respect to Democrats, I can’t imagine a Democrat from a state like mine, a manufacturing, agriculture state like say, Indiana, or North Dakota, or Missouri, would just decide to vote with the ideological left, against their own constituents,” Ryan told the audience.
Ryan explained that he could understand that Democrats would vote along the ideological and the party lines on certain issues.
“I can’t imagine we’re not going to get some votes from some of these Democrats,” Ryan continued. “Because if you listen to what they say, they’re saying the same thing we’re saying. I just quoted Barack Obama on the need to lower corporate tax cuts. So I really do believe at the end of the day that there’s going to be a bipartisan support for this, and given that we’re wired the same way on tax reform, I feel like we’re on the same page.”
