Washington (CNN) - A leading Republican on fiscal and economic issues said Sunday that, in the midst of rampant disagreement in Washington about how best to turn around the faltering economy, he thinks the White House, Democrats, and his party may be able to reach a compromise on corporate tax rates.
Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, noted that in a recent speech President Obama spotlighted business tax reform and passage of trade agreements as two areas where agreement might be reached and legislative action could be taken soon. "Great," he said. "We agree with those. Let's do those. We're bringing these trade agreements up next week in the House. I think we'll pass these things."FULL STORY
