“While staking out their respective positions, there has been an expectation that Ryan and Murray would ultimately come together as a ‘committee of two’ and attempt to reconcile their differences with a scaled-down deal that would be palatable to both parties.”

“That effort, however, could be complicated now that Murray and her fellow Democrats on the committee have made known their determination to close tax loopholes, which some Republicans say is a rejection of Ryan’s approach.”
