Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks spoke to Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM hosts Raheem Kassam and Stephen K. Bannon on Thursday regarding the potential impact of grassroots activism in 2018 and President Donald Trump’s tax reform plan.

Trump “talked a lot about the swamp on the campaign trail,” said Brandon, “The swamp’s constitution is the tax code and that’s where the swamp lives,” he added.

Said Brandon, “If you’re going to go at the swamp you’re going to have to go at the tax code and the loopholes.”

He also pointed out that the most successful part of the Trump presidency has been the assault on the regulatory state, suggesting that the Senate may now be motivated to act because they’re seeing that business-as-usual is proving to be a disaster at the ballot box.

Brandon believes that tax reform needs to be done by the end of the year or the so-called swamp, or lobbyists will pick it apart.
