Timmons on Tax Reform

TIMMONS: Look, I think that Congress can walk and chew gum at the same time. I think they can move both of these issues down the track, get things done. You have people that are elected to actually improve this country and those two issues are pretty important … They have the ability, they have the capability of doing it. One party controls all branches of government. This is the time, this is the opportunity to do exactly what they need to do on immigration reform, on tax reform, on regulatory reform and also infrastructure.

TIMMONS: The President said 15%. We have been advocating 15%. We also want to make sure that pass-through entities are not left behind – that they have a similar competitive tax rate – territorial system and research and development tax credit and expensing as well.

Timmons on DACA

TIMMONS: … the Dreamers are not the problem. Immigration is absolutely broken in this country. There is no question about that. Congress and previous administrations have missed many opportunities to fix the problem by their inaction. Now is the time to step up and do it.
