'No agreement' on DACA between Trump and Democrats, says Paul Ryan

Congress Ryan

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Wednesday he was confident President Donald Trump would push for conservative tax reform and that an outline of a plan to be presented next week reflects consensus between tax writers in Congress and the Trump administration. He said the party plans to unveil its plans later this month and the goal will be to bolster economic growth.

"It's the beginning of a very important process to achieve for the first time in a generation overhauling the tax system, and giving middle class families a much deserved break", Ryan told reporters after a regular closed door meeting of House GOP lawmakers.

It was another example of Republican leaders signaling they might not require major changes to the tax code - like closing big loopholes or eliminating certain deductions - to raise money for expected tax cuts.

The "Better Way" campaign manifesto Ryan released previous year stated that the GOP "envisions tax reform that is revenue neutral". "Tax reform" is a phrase that sounds great, but there would be real winners and losers if the effort gets rid of tax breaks for individuals and businesses.

Despite talks with Democrats on tax legislation, opposition by virtually all of them seems likely, meaning GOP lawmakers will have to be united.

That would be the so-called U.S. -Mexico border wall Trump wants to build.

Ryan calls the approach "reasonable".

The Wisconsin Republicans says in an AP Newsmakers interview that he wanted the White House to provide time for a legislative fix because he didn't want the program "to be rescinded on Day One and create chaos".

President Donald Trump ended DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, on September 5, and delayed the expiration date of the first recipients' work permits for six months.

The Wisconsin Republican has said he doesn't want to punish the almost 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the country as minors by their parents, through no fault of their own.

Ryan said that removing the immigrants covered by the program is "not in our nation's interest".

House Speaker Paul Ryan says White House operations are "improving", but he's not saying whether he thinks that's because of recent West Wing personnel changes.
