When it comes to tax reform, disagreement does not mean defeat.
Yes, fierce debate is taking place over the House leadership’s tax reform plan and potential changes such as border adjustment taxes.
Still, the policymakers and business leaders that I talk to all recognize that 2017 represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for major tax reform that will boost economic growth, create jobs and raise wages. Disagreements should not lessen this effort, as they are a necessary part of bold legislative changes, especially tax reform. In due course, these differences will be overcome.
