STEVE GRUBER: So what is the state of our tax reform today? I mean, there are some competing plans here but there is also some concern of whether people like Collins, and Murkowski, and even Ron Johnson are going to stick with the plan on the Senate side. What are you seeing; what are you feeling?
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Well, what we are hearing from every Senator is a desire to get to yes and there are some details, some numbers or differences on certain issues but the overreaching goal is to bring a tax cut to the middle class of this country, to simplify our tax filing so that it is not so difficult for tax filers, and then also to lower our corporate tax rate so we are competitive with the rest of the world so we can bring jobs to this country and increase wages. So everyone wants to get there, there is just some more discussion that needs to happen to get everybody to yes. And of course we have seen Democrats once again walk away from the table, they are playing the long game and obstructing and resisting this President at all costs, even if that means not bringing money to the American people who have worked so hard and deserve a pay increase, and that includes the people of Michigan.
