RINO Mitch McConnell: Tax Reform Will Take Longer…

President Trump most likely will not take this news well. Mitch McConnell better get a fire under his bum real quick. This is unacceptable. We needed our lawmakers to be working on this yesterday… not a few months down the road.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday poured cold water on the Trump administration’s goal of completing tax reform by the August recess.

“I think finishing on tax reform will take longer,” McConnell said during a Playbook Live interview.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said late last month that the administration wants to wrap up a long-held GOP goal of overhauling the tax code before lawmakers leave for a monthlong break.
“So we are committed to pass tax reform,” he told CNBC. “We want to get this done by the August recess.”
Pressed about when he thought lawmakers would be able to complete tax reform, the Senate’s top Republican demurred.
“It is complicated. All of those discussions are already under way,” McConnell said. “How do you craft it?”
