Paul Ryan Won't Promise That Every Middle Class American Will Get A Tax Cut

By Brian Skellenger

President Trump unveiled his new tax plan on Wednesday, and many on both sides of the aisle were quick to offer their assessments. For Republicans, the emphasis of the bill is to help out the middle class, while Democrats point out that wealthy Americans will be the ones reaping the benefits. 

To plug the conservative perspective, House Speaker Paul Ryan talked to CBS's Face The Nation:

But when pressed about whether all middle class Americans would see a benefit, Ryan was less certain:
