Kevin McCarthy: Trump's Call for Tax Reform Will Pass This Year

President Donald Trump's call for tax reform will be accomplished this year, and will put the United States on a better playing field, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Tuesday.

"You have to have growth in this economy," McCarthy said in an interview with Fox News' "America's Newsroom" anchor Bill Hemmer.

"This is the number one thing to happen. Growth will solve so many of our problems, when you talk about infrastructure and everything else. Tax reform is a great ability for us to do it."

Reform would bring jobs back to America, he continued, and while the approvals are still months away, they'll be done this year.

"Think of all that money," the California Republican said. "It puts us on a better playing field and brings jobs back to America. Think of all that money. Structure dictates behavior. I say it so many times. Our tax structure today pushes companies out of America.

"The profits they make in other countries keeps it in other countries instead of bringing it back to America. It will bring back growth into this country in a different level and it will be a fairer process in so many different ways."

Also on Tuesday, McCarthy spoke out about Trump's meeting with congressional leaders, and said the reports of Trump blaming his popular vote loss in the election on undocumented immigrants came while they were "bantering about the election and going on back and forth on different things."

"The real topic was about how we move forward, about healthcare," said McCarthy. "He said President [Barack] Obama sent him a beautiful letter. He didn't give us the details but stipulated one item.

"If we had a better healthcare plan and we showed that it was, that he could support it. That's when we got into healthcare where even the Democrats said if we had a better healthcare plan."

There are many plans for Obamacare reform, said McCarthy, but first, a cabinet needs to be in place, especially with the approval of Rep. Tom Price, Trump's nominee to head Health and Human Services.

"Tom Price has to be in place before you do anything with Obamacare so you have the understanding of what can and cannot happen," said McCarthy.
