Jeff Flake: We're All in Trouble If Tax Reform Falls Flat

(Fox News)

Everyone, not just Republicans on Capitol Hill, will be in trouble if tax reform cannot get accomplished during the Trump presidency, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said Tuesday.

"Everybody is in trouble if we don't get tax reform done. We've got to show we can put something across the finish line," Flake said during an appearance on Fox News.

"We've been talking about this forever, it's been over 30 years since we had any significant tax reform done, and it's time to do it. Republicans have a majority in the House and Senate, we've got the White House, and so we better get it done."

Flake's comments echo other members of the GOP, who have said in recent days that the Republican Party in its current form could be in trouble if lawmakers are unable to reform the nation's tax code.

Flake also was asked if he had any regrets for speaking out against President Donald Trump on several occasions when he disagrees with him or his message.

"No, none. I spoke up when I felt that I should. When the president made statements with regard to immigrants, with regard to my colleague John McCain, with regard to promoting a Muslim ban during the campaign, those are things that are not conservative. They shouldn't be part of the Republican Party," Flake said.

"I stood up and I'm glad I did. And I think that my colleagues ought to as well."
