McConnell and Mnuchin on Monday touted the need for tax reform but did not go into new details beyond what they have discussed previously.
When Congress returns in September, McConnell said that the key objective was putting together a comprehensive tax reform plan.
"For far too long we've had subpar economic growth", said Mnuchin.
Mnuchin urged Congress to pass a "clean" increase in the debt limit, referring to a bill that simply increases the debt ceiling and has no other policy changes or budget cuts attached to it. "This is about paying for what we've spent, and we can not put the credit of the United States on the line". "We are the reserve currency of the world". McConnell said that "it's going to be tough to get that 20 percent", as Democrats oppose the effort to repeal the Dodd Frank regulations.
Taking questions from a moderator with GLI at the end of the event, McConnell echoed that sentiment, adding that "there is zero chance - no chance - we wont' raise the debt ceiling. No chance", McConnell said.
