GOP lawmakers may oppose tax bill 2.0 to hold onto seats

GOP lawmakers may oppose tax bill 2.0 to hold onto seats

House Republicans announced legislation Monday to permanently lock in last year's tax cuts, looking to remind voters of the surging economy - and the Republicans' role in getting it there - in the weeks before the November elections.

Independent voters' view of Trump may play a key role in the coming midterm elections, with key races in the House, Senate, and for governorships in dead heats or with a spread of a few points. Wary of handing Trump and Republicans an issue to campaign on, she has sought to downplay the idea in the context of the midterms. I don't agree with it, but I understand what they're doing and we've got to counter that. In addition, the Republican plan would allow the popular, tax-free 529 college savings accounts to also be used to pay for apprenticeship fees and home schooling expenses, as well as paying off student debt.

The American Innovation Act of 2018 (H.R. 6756), which allows startup businesses to write off more of their costs, among other provisions.

Former President Jimmy Carter sees little hope for the U.S.to change its human rights and environmental policies as long as Donald Trump is in the White House, but he has a warning for his fellow Democrats looking to oust the current administration: Don't go too far to the left.

The poll is another gloomy harbinger for Donald Trump and the GOP, which control the White House and both chambers of Congress.

The cuts passed in December are projected to add an estimated $1.5 trillion over a decade to the federal deficit, the difference between Washington's spending and the taxes it collects. Deficit hawks as well as Democratic lawmakers - who were unanimous in opposing the tax legislation previous year - are asking how the Republicans intend to pay for the extended tax cuts.

According to the CNN poll, Trump's approval rating among Republicans remains high at 82 percent.

The legislation would permanently lower the tax rates for individuals as well as preserve a larger child tax credit and the approximately $22 million estate tax exemption for couples, which was doubled in the 2017 law.

The tax-cut bill reduced corporate taxes from 35 to 21 percent, fueling business growth for companies of every size, which have in turn hired more workers. This might fly if he was the president of Russian Federation but not here in the U.S.
