Behind the scenes with Trump's point men on tax reform
Here's what Trump's two point men on tax reform. Gary Cohn and Steven Mnuchin, have been telling business representatives and special interests in their closed-door meetings, per sources in the rooms:
Timing: Goal is to have an agreed upon House-Senate-White House tax reform proposal by early September for when members return from summer recess. They would then use September, October, November to push through tax reform.
Key question: They're posing the same question to special interest groups: "If we can get the corporate rate into the teens, what are you willing to give up?"
