“[I]n the town halls, the roundtables I make, boy Americans are starved, they’re hungry for something better than what we have in the tax code today.”
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), the House Ways and Means Committee chairman who will help usher through Congress tax reform legislation, said there is a hunger for fixing the tax code across the country.
“[I]n the town halls, the roundtables I make, boy Americans are starved, they’re hungry for something better than what we have in the tax code today,” the Texas Republican said on CNBC’s SquawkBox. “Look, they’re tired of watching our American companies and jobs and research move overseas. They’re tired of their young people getting out of school with very little prospects for good paying jobs. They know something needs to be fixed.”
Brady was asked to address polls gauging support for tax reform. Politico reported that while those who said tax reform should be a “top priority” was at just 35 percent in May, it’s on the rise. A Politico/Morning Consult poll showed that number at 43 percent last month.
The Texas Republican also indicated that tax reform is a top priority for the president, as well.
“My sense of President Trump, he’s all in on tax reform,” he said.
