Change in Strategy

The Trump administration's focus is on tax reform following their failure to repeal and replace Obamacare.

 

Democrats and Republicans are sparring over the administration’s new plan to tackle tax reform after the failed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. With potentially trillions of dollars in tax cuts – plus simplifying the tax code – with less than 40 days left in the legislative session, the White House hopes to get this new tax reform plan passed as quickly as possible. Democrats are arguing this plan will only benefit the wealthy. But despite strong partisanship on these issues,  there was a mutual show of support for Republican Majority whip Steve Scalise who returned to Capitol Hill yesterday for the first time since being shot at the Congressional baseball practice in June.
