Ryan: Goal is to complete tax reform by end of year

In an interview with the Associated Press, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (pictured) said on Wednesday the goal of the Republican Party is to have tax reform enacted by the end of the year. However, the Wisconsin Republican declined to say whether the new tax plan will increase the federal deficit. 

Earlier, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady said lawmakers plan on releasing the framework for comprehensive tax reform during the last week of September. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump called on Republicans to hurry with tax reform, as hurricanes Harvey and Irma have devastated parts of Florida and Texas.
