This report reinforces what government watchdogs and congressional investigators have confirmed time and time again: bureaucrats at the I.R.S., such as Lois Lerner, arbitrarily and haphazardly administered the tax code and targeted taxpayers based on political ideology.

Aug 22 2017

You leave tax reform just to Washington, it won't get done.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

If you look at today's tax code you can't even recognize the principles that made the Reagan reforms such a triumph for the American people. We're working through the details of the overall tax plan with the White House, President Trump, and Senate tax writers as well. We have more work to do. I anticipate continuing to work through August with the White House and Senate, bring forward a tax reform plan at the Ways and Means Committee after we return.feedback

Aug 15 2017 - Republican Party

We are on track to deliver transformational, bold tax reform this year because President Trump and the House and Senate are working together to deliver on that timetable. While America is divided on the benefits of Obamacare, there's no one defending the status quo of this broken, complex, ugly tax code. To me, it feels so much different than health care.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Obamacare

Simply letting Obamacare collapse will cause even more pain.feedback

Even with a low rate, we'll continue to see U.S. jobs and research and headquarters move overseas.feedback

I am even more adamant that we not politicize these tragedies.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Obamacare

We should act within our constitutional authority now to temporarily and legally fund (subsidy) payments as we move away from Obamacare. Insurers have made clear the lack of certainty is causing 2018 proposed premiums to rise significantly.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Obamacare

Obamacare's design flaws were not the fault of the American people. The people now trapped in Obamacare did what the government mandated them to do – they complied with the law. They should not be left out to dry.feedback

May 25 2017 - Republican Party

As we listen to their concerns, especially when does the currency adjust and how much – fair concern, in my view – what we know is transition, timing and design really can allay those concerns in a positive way. Secretary Mnuchin, in my view, is shooting straight with me. It is a big change, and so we are bringing to the table with the White House and the Senate sort of how we designed this to address those valid concerns. But more importantly, we're inviting their ideas as well.feedback

May 18 2017 - NAFTA

We look forward to working with the administration to strengthen the agreement in a seamless way and ensure that we retain the current benefits for American workers, farmers and businesses.feedback

May 05 2017 - Trump administration

That's the argument and the case we're going to make to the Senate and the Trump administration.feedback

May 02 2017 - American politics

The good news is that the Trump plan and the House plan share 80 percent commonality. We have to work to narrow the differences between the rest.feedback

Apr 27 2017

We've got some differences on the rates, but only from the sense that we all want to go as low as we can.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Trump Presidency

I appreciate the president's leadership and strong commitment to comprehensive tax reform.feedback

Apr 10 2017

The border adjustability feature eliminates the tax-driven incentives that force American businesses to shift their jobs, profits and headquarters overseas, including attacking the root cause of inversions. Our entire tax reform blueprint is designed to make America one of the best places on earth for businesses to create jobs and invest in our communities.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We had a positive and open discussion, and I appreciated the opportunity to engage in a two-way dialog.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Republican Party

I think that the key is for us to work to resolve and narrow the differences on these provisions, always with the goal of the lowest rate in modern history for job creators.feedback

Apr 04 2017

Both the House and Senate in recent years have weighed in pretty heavily with resistance against those ideas.feedback

Apr 04 2017

Today our broken tax code favors foreign goods over American goods and encourages businesses to shift jobs and profits out of the United States and into foreign countries solely for tax reasons. Our 'built for growth' tax reform blueprint will reverse that trend.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - American politics

At the end of the day, I don't want to make a prediction as to where that goes. But I think this engagement's important. I'd love to have them bring their ideas on how we leapfrog America back into the lead as the most competitive place on earth for that new business.feedback

Apr 03 2017

While it is important to examine the causes of our trade deficits, we know that there are many causes that have nothing to do with trade agreements – including the status of the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency and the widespread use of the U.S. dollar internationally. In fact, our trade agreements have been successful in making it easier to sell 'Made in America' products and services.feedback

Mar 28 2017

I'm optimistic that Republicans still very much care about balancing the . And in truth, this doesn't have to be a choice. If we're serious about leapfrogging America back to the lead of the pack, if we're serious about creating jobs and jump-starting this economy, a 10-year bill will not accomplish either of those. The most pro-growth tax reform is a permanent tax reform.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Trump administration

We have so much in common with the Trump administration. It wouldn't make sense to have a separate tax bill from Secretary Mnuchin, a separate tax bill from Gary Cohn, a third from whomever.feedback

Mar 27 2017

We've never stopped working. We will continue to make improvements. We are planning to move this in the Ways and Means committee in spring ... and have this ready for the Senate to go as well.feedback

Mar 25 2017 - Republican Party

Republicans "are moving full speed ahead with President Trump on the first pro-growth tax reform in a generation.feedback

Mar 24 2017

This made a big challenge more challenging but it's not insurmountable, so we're going to pivot straight to this and just roll forward.feedback

Mar 23 2017

This isn't the 1980s where rates alone will do it. We have to go bolder than that. And the border adjustment tax has big benefits.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Republican Party

President Trump supposedly didn't run on tax breaks for wealthy investors. But he did run on raising incomes and increasing growth.feedback

Mar 22 2017

We have the best opportunity in seven years to repeal this sinking ship of Obamacare.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Republican Party

People are coming to realize that as a key component tied the lower rates, no longer taxing worldwide, the critical role that border adjustability plays in being able to leapfrog from now 31st in the world in competitiveness up to third and keeping us there for the long term is really key.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Later today, we will release some technical and policy changes that further strengthen the bill.feedback

Mar 20 2017

I think the way we deliver it from the House is going to create a lot of momentum for the Senate going forward.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Everyone wonders what it might be like to work for a company when they apply for a job, but we're giving people the ability to physically see it and experience it for themselves. We know, for example, that climbing a pole for the first time can be daunting for new recruits, and that's why we wanted to give people a real insight into what's involved. Hopefully it will help them to make a more informed decision when they come to apply.feedback

Mar 10 2017

We're not stopping here. This is just the beginning of our work.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I know lots of people have good ideas. That's terrific. And those will fit in future bills.feedback

Mar 09 2017

We voted repeatedly to end Obamacare's crushing taxes and mandates and ensure patients have more power over their own health care.feedback

Mar 08 2017

It repeals all the taxes, all the mandates, all the penalties, all the subsidies. This is Obamacare gone and there's no arguing about that.feedback

Mar 07 2017

They hurt the economy. They hurt health care. They achieve nothing. I don't want Americans to continue to struggle under the Obamacare taxes.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - IPhone

We dismantle Obamacare's damaging taxes and mandates so states can deliver quality, affordable options based on what their patient populations need, and workers and families can have the freedom and flexibility to make their own health care choices.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - Obamacare

This is one of our key promises as Republicans. We know we can do so much better than Obamacare. ... I guarantee you, House Republicans are going to deliver for the president.feedback

Mar 03 2017

We don't have a bill. We're continuing to work with the Congressional Budget Office and our members on the final product.feedback

Mar 02 2017

We are intent on keeping the March schedule.feedback

Feb 28 2017

The EU's ban on U.S. beef is not based on sound science and discriminates against American beef farmers, ranchers, and producers.feedback

Feb 24 2017

We're cointinuing to work toward a defecit neutral replacement plan along with repeal and I'm confident we'll deliver on that.feedback

Feb 15 2017

If you don't have that in there, tax rates on our local businesses, small and large, will go up. Our tax code will continue to favor foreign products over American-made products and we'll continue to have major incentives to drive jobs and headquarters overseas. That can't continue.feedback

Feb 15 2017

We agree we want to make sure we have the lowest prices possible through true competition. I invited them today, as I have for some time now, to come to the table, to help us make sure we have the design right and we have the transition right so that we can grow the U.S. economy in a very strong way. I'm optimistic at the end of the day we get this done this year and it's going to be, I think, the boldest tax reform we've seen in 30 years or more.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - Human Rights

If Congress begins to use its powers to rummage around in the tax returns of the president, what prevents Congress from doing the same to average Americans? Privacy and civil liberties are still important rights in this country, and (the) Ways and Means Committee is not going to start to weaken them.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - Human Rights

I've read his letter and I disagree with all of it.feedback

Feb 06 2017

Their concerns about consumer impacts or tax impacts, we don't want those either.feedback

Feb 06 2017

We are listening carefully and exploring a number of ideas on both design and the transition of this provision to accommodate some of the concerns, valid concerns. I'm confident ... that the design of the border adjustability and the transition of it will allay those concerns. We know where we want to go and we're going to listen to all ideas. But we're going to end up with a tax code that taxes products at the same equal rate in the United States.feedback

Feb 03 2017

We're having good, healthy discussions about this and frankly these steps, these discussions we're having right now ultimately is going to be one of the reasons we are going to do this tax reform this year.feedback

Feb 03 2017

They want to avoid any tax spike or price spike. So we're engaged with them because I'm convinced that one, we can design this provision and transition it in a way to allay many of those concerns. We also know the economy adjusts – strength in the U.S. economy, strength in our exports, the dollar will appreciate. That's going to address the balance on the imports.feedback

Jan 24 2017

Tax rates on businesses would have to increase significantly from the proposed 15 percent and 20 percent rates, undercutting our ability to make America competitive again.feedback

Jan 24 2017

People receiving these letters have already made up their minds about Obamacare when they applied for an exemption or paid a penalty.feedback

Dec 19 2016

Dec 09 2016

Obamacare isn't fixable.feedback

Dec 02 2016

Dec 01 2016

I'm absolutely confident, in fact I'm optimistic, that by focusing on quality and innovation in Medicare that we can save that program for the long term in a very positive way.feedback

Dec 01 2016

There's incredible pressure in Washington not to change a thing, for everyone to keep every special provision there is. That tax code is dragging our economy down, wasting billions of dollars in compliance costs and hurting salaries and jobs and growth.feedback

Dec 01 2016 - Affordable Care Act

I think it's important, especially in health care, to take this step by step. Whether it's the replacement of the Affordable Care Act, how we make Medicaid work better, how we save Medicare for the long term.feedback

Dec 01 2016 - Democratic Party

Democrat tactics of 'Mediscare' have been around a long time. They've stopped working. Voters have figured out Republicans want to save Medicare for the long term, and they know that those who say everything's just fine with it aren't leveling with them.feedback

Nov 21 2016

It's important to have a Treasury with all hands on deck helping us move this tax reform. You need leadership from the White House and, certainly, we're going to get it.feedback

Nov 21 2016

For too long, this tax has threatened family owned businesses – including women and minority-owned businesses – from being passed down to their children and grandchildren. It's time to move forward with pro-growth tax reform that fully repeals the death tax and replaces it with a tax code built for growth.feedback

Nov 21 2016

I look forward to working with President-elect Trump on legislation to permanently bury the death tax once and for all.feedback

Sep 12 2016 - Obamacare

This report unfortunately tells us more of what we already know – that the Obamacare federal exchanges have been riddled with problems since Day One.feedback
