The Endless Summer was the surfing movie for boys when I was growing up in Southern California in the 1970s – a 1966 movie about two surfers following the Summer Sun around the world in search of the perfect wave – with the prospect of Summer never ending.
The future is a foreign country, they will do things differently there (apologies to Hartley). The assumptions of the path forward for our country were shattered with the election results – and certainly no more so than in the area of tax policy. Instead of a long grind primarily focused about taxes and the wealthy, the nation will now focus on potentially sweeping tax reform and a lowering of tax burdens.
Given the driving leadership of Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), as well as Speaker Ryan, this House tax reform proposal deserves close scrutiny for those looking for early tea leaves of what reform may look like—especially if Mr. Trump wins the White House.
