Ryan Struggles to Sell Tax Reform to His Own Party

February 17, 2017By Taegan Goddard

“Paul Ryan showed up to Senate Republicans’ weekly lunch on Tuesday hoping to salvage a controversial pillar of his tax reform plan that would change how imports and exports are taxed,” Politico reports.

The next day, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) took to the Senate floor to slam Ryan’s so-called “border adjustment tax,” saying “some ideas are so stupid only an intellectual could believe them.”

“The sequence was an ominous sign for a linchpin of Ryan’s tax plan — and perhaps for the prospects of tax reform happening at all. The border adjustment tax would generate more than a trillion dollars over a decade; there’s no obvious way to replace that money, which is needed to help pay for a steep cut in corporate and income taxes.”

1. I'd never call Ryan an "intellectual", a conman, huckster, snake oil peddler, yeah.

He's a useful idiot who gets is "ideas" from Jim DeMint's Heritage Foundation, the Koch Bros., and ALEX, so you know he's just babbling more trickle down BS that will ripoff wager earners and enrich the rich.
