Trump Celebrates Tax Law: 'We Are Making America Great Again'

Rosie O'Donnell Offers $2 Million to GOP Senators to Vote Against Tax Bill


Vice President Mike Pence sat down with Laura Ingraham on "The Ingraham Angle" on Wednesday to discuss the tax reform bill.

Pence told Ingraham he is ecstatic at the passage of the tax reform legislation.

"[It] accomplishes the president’s vision, and we really do believe that it’s gonna promote the kind of growth and opportunity for Americans that will really, in many ways, sell itself. But make no mistake about it, the president and I will be out across the country," he said.

Ingraham asked Pence about rumors that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) may step down from his role in the House "sooner than people thought."

"I think the result of this tax cut really speaks for itself, and the president and I hold Speaker Ryan in the highest regard and want him to stay in the Congress and continue to lead Congress because we’re really just getting started," Pence said.

Pence also discussed the president's low poll numbers in spite of several first-year accomplishments.

He said he was "humbled" to be a part of the process in shepherding the legislation to its end goal.

Pence also praised the fact the tax bill allowed drilling in ANWR, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which was applauded by Alaska's at-large Rep. Don Young (R), and Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R) and Dan Sullivan (R).

He called the tax bill a "middle class miracle" that people will feel in mere weeks.

Ingraham challenged Pence on the retention of the carried interest loophole, which effectively allows hedge fund managers to pay a lower rate.

Pence said he and Trump wanted the provision removed from the tax code but were unsuccessful.
