WASHINGTON – Earlier this week, Wisconsin’s First District Congressman and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan appeared on WLKG’s Life Matters to discuss tax reform:

Lowering people’s tax rates so they can keep more of what they earn in the first place means they have more money in their pocket, bigger paychecks, more take home pay, and . . .  Number two, by lowering tax rates across the board on all of our businesses, we put businesses in a much, much better position to grow and to thrive and to compete.”

“Well, first of all from the individual side, the tax cut is for the middle class. It’s dropping tax rates for middle class taxpayers, raising the per child tax credits for people who are having families. So that is where the tax cut goes. . . . And you can’t escape the fact that people own businesses, and if you’re lowering the tax on those businesses, you’re lowering the tax on those people. But that’s the whole point of all of this and that’s where I think this sort of left-wing rhetoric misses the point, which is: Do you want American businesses to grow and thrive and stay in America and to be competitive, or not? And that is really the simple question.”
