House Speaker Ryan visits Intel

Posted August 28, 2017

EVERETT- House Speaker Paul Ryan used a visit to the Boeing plant in Everett yesterday to pitch the Republican tax reform proposal.

Ryan who has been a crusader of this agenda even before Trump became President would draw criticism from Democrats some conservatives who would rather prefer Ryan confronts Trump than getting caught in the same moment with the President. "We will not tolerate this hateful ideology in our society".

Ryan and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) are visiting some of the country's major corporate hubs this week to discuss the GOP's plan to significantly lower the corporate tax rate and simplify the tax code for average Americans.

"An immigration system... that is based on what the economy needs, based on skills, based on contributions to the economy, is the kind of system that, I believe an emerging consensus is occurring that we hope to achieve", he said. "I think we have a word to keep, and I think we all know we have to keep our word".

Mr. Ryan said congressional Republicans and Mr. Trump are on the same page on the big issues, including tax reform.

Ryan praised the investments made by Intel in capital equipment and research and development - $22.7 billion annually, he said - and voiced hope of creating more successful companies like Intel. The House speaker also said that border patrol agents told him the barrier is necessary along certain parts of the landscape, during his tour of the Rio Grande Valley in February.

On Wednesday, he visited employees at Intel's headquarters in Hillsboro, Oregon.

"Therefore", analysts Brian Gardner and Michael Michaud of Keefe, Bruyette & Woods wrote in a note to clients Friday, "we think the likely strategy will be to increase the debt ceiling and then pass a temporary spending bill that will buy Congress more time to finish spending bills for the remainder of the fiscal year (through September 30, 2018)".

The speaker also viewed a new water cooling system for computer servers.
