Almost 100 conservative leaders called on Congress to push through a tax reform package that lowers rates "across the board," The Washington Times reported.

Their comments came in a letter to the six-member group trying to put together a tax reform package, according to the newspaper. The group includes House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

"It is key that tax reform reduce rates for Americans across the board, drastically simplifies the code for families and individuals, ends the Death Tax, unrigs the system to promote a healthy economy, and implements a territorial system of taxation so businesses large and small can compete," the leaders wrote

Those signing the letter included Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and Christine Harbin, vice president of external affairs fort Americans for Prosperity, the Times reported.

"Numerous polls have shown widespread public support for tax reform that lowers rates for all and reforms the code based on the principles of simplicity, fairness, and equity," the letter said. "Americans are frustrated with the rigged system that favors the politically connected and lobbyists at the expense of ordinary Americans.

"We applaud the work that each of you have already taken to ensure tax reform is enacted in 2017 and stand ready to continue working with you in the second half of the year," the leaders wrote.

And The Hill reported the letter also noted tax reform is needed now because the existing code "serves well-connected special interests, not hard working Americans."
