if we did pass tax reform before the midterm election of 2018, that is a huge win they can go back to districts that and say they got this done. if not off the table. sean spicer as well as senate majority leader mitch mcconnell have both lowered expectations on the passage this year. i think a lot of people since not only on the hill, but individuals and investors since the administration is learned for the mistakes they made with the health care bill and perhaps taking time is better. 1986 tax reform took two years. lauren: when it happened, the stock market loved it. where do we stand with the controversial border adjustment tax at this point? at the date of the republic in existence right now. retailers hate the border adjustment tax. is that that tax is something that individuals and consumers really don't like. right now it's all about revenue.
how did they get the revenue, how did they pay for this? one of those areas is the key sticking point for negotiation. a republican consensus or do you try to get rid of the ideological members republicans didn't get democrats on board. tranter break down proposals on the board right now and what is more opportunity here? >> the house has said a lot. they have not said much in indicating what he would like. you said that is not on the table right now and you haven't heard much from the senate yet either. he is not only getting the ceos perspective on public-private partnership, but opinions and he's getting a lot of expertise on what will go into the tax labor. lauren: would receive plan to eliminate payroll tax or cut the corporate tax? >> corporate tax will come down. 35% right now.
they want between 20 and 25. that will be the most likely. cutting the payroll tax would give a worker who makes $60,000 a year in extra $3700 basically per year. look at the tags. a lot of negotiations going down. but don't make it through. as long as they take it time and do it well. hopefully a big tax cut. train to kirsten hoglund committed to mac for joining us. lauren: coming up in spurs after a two-hour rain delay, chicago cubs host the world championship flag. look at it go up at wrigley field. the rally to beat the cleveland cavaliers can keep their playoff hopes alive. my mother continues to hit the northeastern rid of it. meteorologists adam klotz has your forecast. you are watching "fbn:am," your
