“America has the worst tax code in the industrialized world. It is killing economic growth. It is driving companies to become foreign companies. More and more and more U.S. companies are going to leave this country because of our tax laws.”
— Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI)
The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, made an important announcement on Thursday when he told the media during his weekly press conference that the GOP would be making tax reform a priority in the coming year.
