"Good morning. There is a lot of talk about progress that we are having and hope to have around these negotiations at the White House and I know a lot of questions were asked about why the Biden talks ended. If you look at the jobs report, the results of current policies, and where we are in this economy, that is why the Biden talks had to end. Because the discussion in those talks turned to the other side insisting that we raise taxes. Now it just does not make sense for Americans to suffer under higher taxes in an economy like this. As the Speaker said, there is no way that the House of Representatives will support a tax increase."
