President Trump is under pressure to deliver a big win for Republicans on taxes.
The GOP this week will dive headfirst into an overhaul of the tax code, a goal that has eluded the party for a generation. The House Ways and Means Committee is slated to release the text of legislation on Wednesday.
The message from Republicans is loud and clear: they need to Trump to be energetic, focused and disciplined to help get the plan across the finish line.
“It does take presidential leadership. Getting something like this done, which hasn’t been done since 1986,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said this month.
