Ryan: You Can’t Solve Our Problems in America Unless We Get Real Economic Growth with Tax Cuts

‘You can’t solve the kinds of problems we need to solve in America unless we get real economic growth going to 3%’

EXCERPT:

RYAN: "But what we showed with our budget reconciliation instruction is that we have a $1.5 trillion cushion. We believe that we will be fine on that. We believe that when you look at other analysis, whether it’s going to be treasury or the rest, that we’re right there in the sweet spot with economic growth that gives us more revenue for where we need to be. The key is economic growth. We have not had a 3 percent economy in about a decade. You can’t solve the kinds of problems we need to solve in America unless we get real economic growth going to 3 percent which we think we can achieve with tax reform and regulatory relief."
