Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is calling on Congress to "stop the coma-inducing" discussion of revenue-neutral tax reform – and pass tax cuts that lower federal revenue and slash taxes.

In an opinion piece for Breitbart News, the Kentucky Republican praised President-elect Donald Trump's vow to cut taxes for every American.

"We owe it to the American people and to our party to go big and be bold again," he wrote. "We owe it to them to stop the coma-inducing Washington talk that never seems to shrink government or deficits."

"Let's follow the lead of Presidents [Ronald] Reagan and [George W.] Bush and help President Trump begin his administration with tax cuts for everyone, and less money in Washington," he added.

The Hill reported House Republicans are working on a tax reform bill intended to be revenue neutral after accounting for economic growth, noting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has also said he would prefer tax reform to be revenue neutral.

Paul argues revenue-neutral tax reform "means that some people will pay less, but some people will pay more and government will still be the same enormous beast it was before we started the process."

"I like to tell people, no one has ever knocked a door or made a phone call because they were excited about 'revenue neutral' tax reform," he wrote.
