Republican leaders are still ironing away last-minute concerns before a tax bill vote
(CNN) Home Republicans are forging in advance with ideas to vote on their tax bill Thursday merely weeks following the legislation was first released.
Most lawmakers are upbeat about their bill’s prospect, with members from all corners of the conference from the conservative Home Freedom Caucus to the average Tuesday Group telling CNN that they plan to vote “yes.”
But as with almost all legislation, Republican leaders are still ironing out last-minute issues and whipping their expenses.
I am pleased with the Rep. Home & Senate for working so hard on cutting taxes & reform. We’re getting close! Today, how about ending the unfair & highly unpopular Indiv Mandate in OCare & reducing taxes even further? Cut top charge to 35% w/all of the rest going to middle class cuts? – Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2017
“Look, we’re pushing this bill as we’ve it,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Tuesday when asked about Trump’s demand. “There’s ongoing conversations. It’s a work happening. … We’re going to go to a meeting committee and we will address all these problems and we’re taking responses from all of our members on an ongoing basis.”
