Typically, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) and the Manufacturing Housing Institute (MHI) don’t make public comments on this issue.  So the spotlight report today is on the vexing question to thousands of businesses – and the broader markets – will tax reform get done this year?

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

President Donald J. Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tax Reform in 2017


It’s amazing what some heat will do under the right – or wrong? – people. 

It’s equally amazing that unnamed sources or empty talking heads are trying to paint the president as ready for 25th Amendment removal. The president routinely appears cool, confident, and in command – even when the situation he is speaking about may be fraught with political peril.

Here’s CNBC’s bullets below.

·        President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reiterate that they want a tax bill passed this year.

·        Tax-writing committees still have not drafted a concrete plan. The leaders also try to quash talk about a rocky relationship, saying they are united in their agenda.

·        Regarding this second video, below, of the ‘entire’ press conference you can skip to about the 10:30 time mark to catch the actual start of this conference.

The first video is considered by many Oval Office watchers as the key snippet.

The second video is of the ‘full’ press conference, and you can skip to about the 10:30 time mark to see where the conference actually opens, as President Trump, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader McConnell make their appearance for the press.
