"Blah, blah, blah, blah."
Boehner said Camp's proposal is just the start of a long-overdue debate.
"There's a conversation that needs to begin. This is the beginning of the conversation," he said. "The idea of tax reform is to get our economy going again, provide better, more economic growth, more jobs and higher wages. The way you do that is you bring down rates. And to bring down rates, you clean out a lot of the garbage that's in there and the special interest issues that are in it. I think we ought to have a real conversation and this is the beginning of that conversation."
Even if Boehner wants to talk about tax reform, the issue appears to be a non-starter for Republicans in the Senate, where Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that “I think we will not be able to finish the job, regretfully. I don't see how we can."
