Tax reform positioned to be 100-day priority for Trump

(Washington Examiner) -- reports that "tax reform could be the top agenda item for a unified Republican administration and Congress in January." According to the story, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said "tax reform would be an item for the first 100 days for congressional Republicans and Donald Trump's White House." One snag could be that "Trump has called for swift action on tariffs to penalize companies that relocate operations to other countries and then reimport goods to the U.S. That approach likely will cause a rift with Republicans such as Brady and (House Speaker Paul) Ryan, who support liberalized trade."
