As Congress gears up for a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reform the tax code, Speaker Ryan has been taking every possible opportunity to meet with American workers and job creators. From his home state of Wisconsin to the West coast states of Oregon and Washington, last week the Speaker spent time with hundreds of hardworking Americans who deserve a tax system that levels playing field. Here are nine photos from his stops along the way.
