Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi address tax reform

[The stream has ended.]

House Speaker Paul Ryan held his weekly news conference Thursday, promoting the Republican push to overhaul the American tax system.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi earlier had a separate news conference, casting the bill as a giveaway to corporations at the expense of the middle class.

On Wednesday, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch said he believed House and Senate Republicans reached a tentative deal on a final tax bill that reconciles separate plans passed by the chambers. They hope to pass their legislation by the middle of next week.
