Saul Rudo, national head of the Tax Planning practice, was quoted in Law360 regarding challenges facing congressional leaders and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in executing tax reform. While House Republicans and the new administration are expected to push for tax breaks for the top 1 percent, Saul stated, "It may turn out to be politically difficult [for Mnuchin] because not only would it go against the views of the Democrats, but it might also go against the views of a lot of Trump’s base. The populist base wouldn’t support tax cuts for the top 1 percent." ("Mnuchin Must Bend To Both Trump, Congress On Tax Plan," April 20, 2017)
