Rep. Brady: Most Americans 'Could Care Less' About Carried Interest

By    |   Tuesday, 19 December 2017 12:17 PM

Most Americans are focused on tax cuts, not carried interest and other details in the tax reform legislation, according to Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas.

"For the first time, we’re actually going to be competitive, the first time in 31 years, worldwide. That’s what Americans are really focused on. Look — carried interest, we could talk about that for the next hour if you would like. For most Americans, they could care less about that. They care about their paychecks and getting the economy going" Brady said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

"No one back home says, hey, how is the carried interest provision going? They’re asking, ‘hey, can I keep more of my paycheck?’ Brady said in the interview.

When the "fog of all the politics" clears away, Brady, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said he believed that Americans would strongly support the tax reform legislation.

Recent growth in the economy shows the need for the tax reform, Brady said. "Look where we’re at — three percent — dramatically better than the (President Barack) Obama years and slow growth of the last decade. It does feel much better than it did. We’re now at the average, the average that we’ve been for the last 50 years… we shouldn’t settle for that,” Brady said.

Also on Tuesday, Brady sent a tweet about the tax reform vote. "Let’s get it done," he said in the tweet.
