Trump, GOP at odds over using 401(k)s to pay for tax cuts

Trump, GOP at odds over using 401(k)s to pay for tax cuts”

"Flake that he would not run for re-election is a monumental win for the entire Trump movement and should serve as another warning shot to the failed Republican establishment that backed Flake and others like them that their time is up".

Had Brady challenged Trump on the president's crusade against black politicians, black athletes, black gold star widows or other aspects of Trump's core cultural competency, all hell might have erupted, punctuated by presidential tweets and snide put-downs from White House press podium.

It's not that they all oppose the president's former adviser's more-radical version of conservatism, though some of them do.

Brady also wouldn't say that no Americans would see their income taxes rise if the Republican plan passes, although he did argue that "every American will be better off because of the simpler fairer tax code that lowers those rates and improves their paychecks". But with majorities in both houses and with nominal Republican Donald Trump in the White House, the once-Grand Old Party just couldn't get the job done. "I certainly don't think so". Already, America First and its allied non-profit have raised roughly $25 million with another $15 million in "soft commitments" from donors, according to one official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal discussions. Many arrived via private jets on the landing strip on the property. To actually cross the goal line, Republicans had best keep President Trump's priorities in mind.

"We're working toward a solution", he said at a Washington breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "We're making good progress". In an interview with McClatchy Wednesday evening, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she considered any Republicans voting for the budget "accomplices" in the effort to eliminate the state and local deduction. Deb Fischer of Nebraska and John Barrasso of Wyoming, on notice that they aren't free from close scrutiny. "By passing this budget, I am pleased we can begin the process of advancing tax reform and ultimately get legislation to the president's desk for his signature". Its authors have also hinted that it will simplify the corporate income tax so it applies more evenly - and in that way more fairly - across various industries. Such threats work, he said.

Bannon has vowed to recruit primary challengers to all Republican incumbents with the exception of Sen. Ted. But because Trump is largely unfocused and mostly incompetent, the impact is also significantly muted. The announcement was aimed at seizing on Flake's announcement in an effort to elevate her standing as a national contender. But like Flake, Corker and McCain ultimately target the clear and present danger of Trump's character, not of his vague and variable policies.

"Some of the people he may be looking at, I'm going to see if we can talk him out of that because, frankly, they are great people", Trump said at a news conference with McConnell. "Trump's proposal is exactly what's needed to put rocket fuel into the economy and help the middle class". Perhaps one might more accurately say that House Speaker Paul Ryan is dreaming.

"It's always helpful to have people on the same page".

The narrow victory is a sign of the hard tax reform process to come. And in the minds of many congressional Republicans, getting a tax bill written, passed and signed into law - soon - is imperative.

Republican Rep. Roger Ford took to Facebook saying the plan "will bomb on Wednesday".
