Now Casting the net wider: Republicans in Congress want to give a tax break to millionaires Now Playing Congress’s ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’ Could Create a Tax Revolution Now Playing This week: Trump, Senate Republicans take aim at health care bill Republicans in Washington will have a difficult time passing their tax overhaul.
Here are some key takeaways: 1.
Senate Republicans want to make it easier for millionaires to pay lower taxes.
Republicans want a tax cut for millionaires that is designed to help them get rich, but they don’t want to allow wealthy taxpayers to pay more taxes.
Here’s what you need to know: 2.
The Senate will have to vote this week on whether to allow the wealthy to pay a lower tax rate if they have a deduction for state and local taxes.
It’s possible Republicans could try to tie that bill to the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
The House will have an opportunity to vote Wednesday on whether or not to allow that deduction.
Senate Democrats have not said how they plan to vote, but House Republicans have indicated they’re open to giving the wealthy a break.
They have not indicated they want to change the deduction or the deduction itself.
If they allow the deduction, Democrats will be more open to using the deduction to help the rich pay their taxes.
If Senate Republicans are allowed to tie the bill to repealing the Affordable Act, it will likely pass with bipartisan support.
That means it will pass with the support of both chambers of Congress.
The plan has some Republican supporters, like Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.), who said it’s time for Republicans to get “serious about addressing the problems in our health care infrastructure.”
It also has some Democrats, like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who have been vocal about their opposition to the tax cuts.
Republicans in the Senate could try the plan with Democratic backing.
That could help to get the bill passed in the House.
House Democrats would be more likely to vote for a tax plan that is meant to help rich people pay less taxes.
The bill would provide a $1,000 tax credit for the first $250,000 of income, and a $2,000 credit for $1 million to $2 million.
It would provide the credit for income over $5 million.
Republicans also want to cut taxes on corporations and wealthy people.
But the Senate version does not include such a tax credit, and the bill does not give the tax credits to people with assets of more than $10 million.
House Republicans would need Democratic support to pass their plan.
Democrats could support the bill with Republican support.
