Paul Ryan’s pivot to tax reform
House Speaker Paul Ryan will head to the Buckeye State during this week's Congressional recess to begin his sales pitch for tax reform, according to a source with direct knowledge. After grinding a healthcare bill through the House (a bill that's about to face even more resistance in the Senate), the Speaker should relish the opportunity to change the topic.
- Ryan travels to Ohio on Wednesday. He'll make the case for tax reform in general and (unsurprisingly) won't emphasize his disagreements with the White House.
- The Speaker will visit manufacturing companies near Columbus and hold a roundtable discussion with local business leaders.
- Our source says the event will serve as the beginning of coordinated efforts between House leadership and the administration to sell tax reform.
