The Republican party the outlines of the new tax plan lists almost as many items that are going to remain the same, as you are, changed. The nature of the tax reform – deductions-and the gap has a group that will fight to get it.

The Republicans will boast that the tax-deferred annuity plans, the credit for low-income and the donation deduction will be unaffected.

You play a dangerous game, but due to the orientation on a valued middle-class deduction for interest on mortgages. The powerful construction lobby will wage a high-pitched effort to squash Republican hopes.

The tax proposal is framed as focused on the working and middle class – and there are some help, but your main focus is tax, a corporate income tax reduction, while popular among the party’s corporate base, not to the public’s attention.

The Republicans will try to push the legislation through as much as you have done it-healthcare-reform – by murky details, and scheduling quick votes. The forces are already aligning against her, but, and Democrats are ready to paint the plan as a SOP for the rich.

Donald Trump and the Congress-Republicans have taken a lot riding on a successful effort, but the path is far from easy.
