US House GOP delays tax bill rollout

Source: Politico

“House Republicans postponed the much-anticipated rollout of their tax reform proposal Tuesday night, an ominous sign for a direly-needed legislative accomplishment for President Donald Trump and his party. House Ways and Means Committee members spent all Tuesday holed up in conference rooms trying to iron out last-minute disagreements. Senior committee staff worked through the night Monday and were expected to do the same on Tuesday to unveil the bill at a GOP conference meeting Wednesday at 9 a.m. But in a move that foreshadows the difficulties awaiting the party of Reagan, GOP leaders and tax-writers postponed their big reveal to buy themselves more time. They now hope to release the bill Thursday, but privately acknowledge they have a number of disagreements to resolve first.” (10/31/17)
