Laura Ingraham: GOP 'Finished' Without Tax Reform

(Fox News)

By    |   Friday, 08 September 2017 11:46 AM

Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham said Friday that Republicans "are finished" unless they make short work of tax reform.

President Donald Trump "wants to be a popular president." Ingraham told Fox News  host Sean Hannity. "He's a conservative populist. That means at times, if Republicans don't deliver legislation that he can sign on the critical matters that he campaigned on, he's going to look to move the ball down the field with another set of players."

Trump recently struck a deal with Democratic leaders, much to the surprise of his party, to raise the debt ceiling and fund the government for three months. He tweeted on Friday that the GOP "must start" working on tax reform.

"And sometimes it's going to be people that you and I don't like very much and don't agree with on many issues — on an issue like the debt ceiling, which is a conservative concern and rightfully so — but the President wanted to move this issue off the table and clear the deck for tax reform," she added.

"If they do not get tax reform done, they are done. They are finished. [House Speaker] Paul Ryan came out today and had an extra special spring in his step on tax reform. It's funny what Trump working with the Democrats will do to the Republicans."
