White House Office's picture

The wailing and gnashing of teeth over the tax reform bill passed by the House on Thursday was too much. Even the average congressional debate, with its party-line grandstanding, is bad enough.

Enacting meaningful tax reform that will help the middle class and small businesses is vital to keep the housing market moving forward and to create job and economic growth.
