Trump wants lawmakers to 'move fast' on taxes

Portrait of Governor Doug Burgum

Republicans invested in executing Republican-led tax reform have spent months making the pitch that this debate will be much easier than the one over health care was.

He backed off months of promises that the Republicans' tax plan won't add to the nation's ballooning deficit.

Earlier, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said tax reductions would be paid for by faster economic growth.

The problem is that for every single plan we have seen from the White House or from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), that is categorically false. We "have to get this done", he added.

Heitkamp traveled with Trump aboard Air Force One last week when he spoke broadly about the tax plan in her home state of North Dakota.

The changes come in response to its recent admission to authorities investigating Russia's influence on the 2016 election that they sold thousands of ads likely linked to Russian Federation, many of which were connected to "inauthentic" accounts and Pages.

Ryan also resisted the idea that Republicans will end up simply with tax cuts, rather than a broader tax reform bill. If anything, Mr. Ryan may have emerged stronger.

Asked if their tax plan would be revenue neutral, Ryan told the Associated Press in an interview: "We want pro-growth tax reform that will get the economy growing, that will get people back to work, that will give middle-class taxpayers a tax cut, and that will put American businesses on a better competitive playing field". Trump also met with a group of moderate members of Congress from both parties Wednesday afternoon, where he urged them to come up with a bipartisan solution to protect DACA recipients, who have become known as "Dreamers".

"That's a positive thing and it's good for the Republicans and good for the Democrats", Trump said.

♦ They pulled it off because a popular president fresh off a landslide victory threw his considerable weight and charm behind its passage, and because that president had highly respected professionals on his staff. Reagan lobbied congressmen personally, and at one point even went to Capitol Hill to plead for the legislation.

"My state is open", Manchin said.

USC looks for a win and a boost in rematch with Texas
For much of regulation, what was hyped as a rematch-for-the-ages between No. 4 USC and Texas didn't live up to its billing. The turning point in the second overtime came when the Trojans defense forced a fumble with Texas threatening to score.

For the record, the successful 1986 tax reform effort was approved in the House by a bipartisan vote of 292 to 136; in the Senate, it passed by a bipartisan vote of 74 to 23.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress would have a hard time slashing the corporate tax rate to below 26 percent, even if they eliminated almost every business tax preference, according to a study released on Wednesday. "The House GOP tax plan would provide more than triple that percentage increase in after-tax income for this very high-income group".

KELLY: Kevin Brady - he's Republican congressman from Texas, chairman of the House ways and means committee.

"The House will begin with the bill and we will continue to have work to do after the framework is laid out", Brady told reporters. "We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to do just that".

So far, the White House and GOP negotiators have areas of overlap but also areas of disagreement in their tax cut approach.

Trump has proposed lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent, while House GOP leaders believe a rate in the low- to mid-20s is more politically viable. All of those are changes that are going to mean less tax revenue coming in.

Mr Trump urged progress on tax reform on Twitter on Wednesday: "With Irma and Harvey devastation, tax cuts and tax reform is needed more than ever before".

Mr Mnuchin said that, while Mr Trump is still committed to that rate cut, there could be room for compromise. They need to pass matching budget resolutions to trigger a process called "reconciliation", which allows them to pass changes to the tax code through a simple majority in the Senate. Republicans control 52 seats in the chamber.

Many conservatives, however, have been unwilling to sign off on a budget until they see the full details of the tax proposal. We're not - we're looking for the middle class, and we're looking for jobs - jobs, meaning companies.

"He said, 'We don't have to have the wall on this bill, '" Cuellar recalled. "You get burned once".
