Mnuchin Warns of Tax Reform Delay Following Healthcare Setback

Malita Javier | 18 Abril, 2017, 06:21

Trump and Republicans in Congress are also trying to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare.

Mnuchin also told the Financial Times he agreed with Trump's view that the dollar's strength in the short term was hurting exports, but said he saw the currency's strength over the long term as a positive.

Last March, Mnuchin said he was aiming to have a tax bill "signed" before August in line with Trump's campaign pledges for tax reforms.

'It is fair to say it is probably delayed a bit because of the healthcare, ' Mnuchin told the newspaper.

Supporters of the border-adjustment provision point out that it would raise $1 trillion in revenue that could be used to help pay for lowering tax rates.

Mr Mnuchin said there may be other ways of raising $1tn without incorporating the border adjustment, saying the measure was just one of many elements being examined by a 100-strong Treasury team. He said that there could be a difference of close to $2tn in revenues under different economic scenarios, adding that the difference between growth of 1.8 per cent and 3 per cent was "staggering" when compounded.

'Economic growth creates lots of revenues, ' Trump's treasury secretary pointed out. "When you calculate whether it is deficit-neutral or not, there are a bunch of different calculations and a bunch of models".
