Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas) is a member of the House Budget Committee and collaborated with Chairman Paul Ryan and other members of the panel on the new GOP budget blueprint.
Flores explains why the plan calls for two tax brackets and an end to loopholes. He also walks us through the provisions for reforming Medicare while keeping it the same for those in or about to enter retirement.
"We think that by reforming the tax code we can stimulate economic growth," Flores told WND.
The congressman says Democrat accusations that the Ryan plan ends Medicare as we know it can't possibly be true because President Obama already killed it through his health-care laws. He also discusses how much of a political football this budget plan could be in this election year.
