Trouble Brewing on GOP Push for Tax Reform

Playbook: “Not only will the Senate Republicans package being released today differ significantly from the House bill — Trump said Democrats will like it better! — but House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady is dealing with his own issues over concerns the bill provides massive tax cuts for corporations while individual industries are lobbying to keep their own tax breaks. To further complicate things, Republicans have a massive revenue shortfall they need to plug up.”

“Still in the mix: Including a repeal of the individual mandate to buy health insurance, which raises shy of $400 billion in revenue, but would complicate the political calculus in the Capitol.”
