Republican leaders in the House are beginning to roll out their plan for tax reform, with further details to come on Sept. 25, and a budget containing tax language to be completed by mid-October, Politico reports.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said this is "the beginning of the process . . . to achieve for the first time in a generation, overhauling our tax system and giving middle class families a much deserved break."

This week, House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, filled House Republicans in on the plan to stem concern that the GOP won't have any major legislation to run on in the 2018 midterm elections. Brady reportedly told the room that "the stakes are higher than ever that we deliver," according to an unnamed source present at the meeting.

Republicans also hope to avoid a repeat of their failure to follow through on their campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.

"The whole point of all of this is the House, the Senate and the White House are starting from the same page and the same outline and tax writers are going to take it from there," Ryan said.

The GOP plans to implement tax reform through the budget plan Congress hopes to pass in the next few months.

"No budget, no tax reform," Brady told the Republicans.

Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Mich., a member of Brady's committee, told Politico that the Senate must rise to the occasion just as the House did.

"There's a lot of frustration with the Senate," he said. "We're reaching the apex level right now."

"There's a sense of urgency to get this done," Bishop continued. "Chairman Brady was reminding us of that and put some pressure on those who might be dragging behind. We have to get this done."

House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., asked that Brady "show us the money, in essence, tell us what the plans are for tax reform," according to Politico. "We're told that we're actually going to see rates at some point in the near future, and before we're going to have to vote on the budget plan."
