US Stock Market Indexes Climb to New Record Highs, as The Trump Rally Extends

Paul Ryan (R-WI), the top Republican in the US House of Representatives will reassure America’s business leaders Tuesday that tax reform is on track for this year.

In what is billed as a major speech, Speaker Ryan will seek to dispel the notion that tax reform is adrift by describing what a US tax code overhaul will look like from The Trump Administration.


Speaker Ryan will emphasize the importance of permanent reforms and reject the notion that legislation should do little more than reduce tax rates. He will underscore the need for international corporate tax reforms in remarks to the National Association of Manufacturers.

Sunday, he said that he expected Congress to finalize legislation to dismantle Barack Obamacare by mid-Summer.

Financial markets have been anticipating lower taxes.

Major stock indexes have hit multiple record highs from Donald Trump’s election on bets he would improve economic growth by cutting taxes and boosting infrastructure spending.

The tax reform debate has largely moved behind closed doors, where Speaker Ryan is trying to hammer out an agreement with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House economic adviser Gary Cohn and Republican Chairmen of the 2 congressional tax committees. The aim is to unveil tax reform legislation in September.
