The most controversial tax reform proposal is officially dead

In response to the statement, Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson applauded the new momentum behind a tax reform plan.
"I feel much more confident that we're going to stick the landing on tax reform because we have now said, 'We have consensus, here's the framework - let's go get it done", he said.
The House of Representatives abandoned the border adjustment tax to clear the way for consensus on a "perfectly viable" way to get tax reform done, Ryan said.
The group said have chose to set aside a controversial border adjustment tax on imports that was estimated to raise about a trillion dollars in revenue and had been part of the House GOP's tax blueprint, but was opposed by retailers and other groups.
The border tax, originally devised and backed by House Speaker Paul Ryan, had since divided Republicans in Congress, and some of America's biggest retailers were looking to tear it apart. President Donald Trump and Congress already are attempting to undo the 2010 health insurance law signed by then-President Barack Obama, finalize a budget and increase the government's borrowing authority.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn jointly released a statement of principles reaffirming their commitment to passing substantive tax reform for all Americans while finally rejecting the border adjustment tax (BAT) proposal that would have added a 20% tax on all goods and services imported into the United States. "Broadening the tax base and lowering the corporate tax rate will allow our industry to compete effectively in the global marketplace, particularly without the additional burden of a border adjustment tax".
The battle over healthcare reform has affected the tax reform discussion, Ryan said at another point in the interview with Bartiromo.
White House spokeswoman Natalie Strom said most of the goals in the White House April guidelines are "consistent" with Thursday's joint statement. There's not a complete consensus on how best to do healthcare reform. Lawmakers would likely have to craft a package that is revenue neutral if they want the tax cuts to be part of permanent changes to the code.
