Majority of Americans want tax reform to pass

A majority of Americans on both sides of the aisle are not only unhappy with the current tax system, but they feel that a major tax reform plan needs to pass, according to a new poll from America First Policies given exclusively to Axios.

Why it matters: The survey results suggest that tax reform is "truly a bipartisan concern," said Brian Walsh, president of America First Policies, in the press release. However, the administration hasn't made any bipartisan efforts on their tax reform plan thus far. Instead, Republicans are committed to passing their tax plan via reconciliation, which means it would only need Republican votes in the Senate. And the admin hasn't reached out to any of the 10 red-state Democratic Senators to discuss tax reform, which some veteran Republican operatives have told Axios is political malpractice not to consult with these Senators on the issue.
