Republicans Passed a Budget Bill. What Does That Mean for Tax Overhaul?

Representative Diane Black, Republican of Tennessee, the chairwoman of the House Budget Committee, seemed to suggest as much in a statement after the Senate vote on Thursday. “In the House, I look forward to swift passage,” she said.When will Republican leaders unveil a full tax bill?Republicans have released a framework for their tax plans, which includes targets for reducing corporate and individual income tax rates, but it leaves major details unspecified. Once the budget is completed, party leaders will move quickly to fill in those blanks, by releasing draft legislation that many lobbyists expect could be as long as 1,000 pages.The House is expected to go first, releasing a bill as soon as the start of November. The Senate could follow soon after with a bill of its own; lobbyists and trade groups expect that bill will differ in some significant ways from the House bill, particularly in the details of international business taxation.Members of the House Ways and Means Committee are huddling next week to debate final, unresolved questions in their bill. Discussions continue among members of the Senate Finance Committee as well. In both cases, Republicans are almost exclusively negotiating with one another, not with Democrats.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.Will Democrats have any chance to change the bill?Once a bill drops, House Ways and Means members will meet for what is called a markup, where representatives offer amendments Democrats plan to use that opportunity to try to bend the bill more toward cutting taxes for the middle class — by expanding the earned-income tax credit, for example. Republicans might use the process to try to protect specific constituencies, such as taxpayers in high-tax states who claim large deductions for state and local taxes […]

Trump’s Big Gamble: Can He Pull Alabama Senator to Victory?

There is, of course, no small measure of irony in Mr. Trump’s decision to side with the establishment forces that lined up against his campaign for president. If Mr. Strange, who was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, wins, Mr. Trump will deal a blow to some of the same anti-Washington forces that propelled his own rise.But Mr. Trump has taken a liking to Mr. Strange, who, he noted at the rally, has not asked for any presidential favors, and several Senate Republicans have told him that Mr. Moore would be an unreliable ally.

Senate Rejects Bipartisan Effort to End 9/11 Military Force Declaration

But so far Congress has balked, declining to take on the difficult issue even as lawmakers such as Mr. Kaine insist that the legislative branch should reclaim its constitutional duty to declare war.In the House, in another unlikely partnership, Representative Barbara Lee, the California Democrat who was the only member of the House to vote against the original resolution in 2001, paired up with Representative Scott Taylor, a freshman Virginia Republican and former Navy SEAL, over the summer to convince the Appropriations Committee to insert language repealing the original use of force declaration into a spending bill.“I just felt compelled to stand up and say, now it’s time to look at the AUMF,” Mr. Taylor said, using the acronym for the authorization for the use of military force. He said once he spoke up, other Republicans joined in to support him: “It’s an issue that I don’t think is going to go away.”But Republican leaders stripped the provision out of the spending measure; Speaker Paul D. Ryan said at the time that the move was a “mistake” and that such language was not appropriate for inclusion in a spending measure.“It was really shameful,” Ms. […]

Bob Corker, Often an Ally of Trump, Is Latest Republican to Be Attacked by Him

By contrast, the president has singled out few Democrats, saving his criticism for their leadership.“You can’t make sense of it from any normal political perspective,” said Whit Ayres, a Republican pollster. “The effect is going to be to have congressional Republicans take off on their own and accomplish as much as they can.”Brian Walsh, a former adviser to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said that Mr. Trump’s attacks on his own party were “shortsighted and self-destructive,” but that “unfortunately, he shows no sign of letting up.”“The president’s governing philosophy appears to be ‘if it feels good, do it,’ but when he attacks his Republican allies he’s not only helping Senate Democrats, but he’s hurting his ability to get his agenda through Congress,” Mr. Walsh said.At her briefing on Friday, Ms. Sanders was asked how the president would advance legislation with a slim Republican majority when he attacked his own party. She shifted the blame to Congress, saying: “I think it’s clear that the end game is for Congress to do its job and actually pass legislation. I think the American people are very frustrated with Congress’s lack of action.”Some of Mr. Trump’s closest allies say that he believes he cannot go wrong attacking his own party, having won a presidential race doing just that, or separating himself from an unpopular Congress.

Mitch McConnell’s ‘Excessive Expectations’ Comment Draws Trump’s Ire

Mr. McConnell’s office declined to confirm the call or address questions about it.His message echoed the criticisms in recent days from many conservative news media figures and activists, who blame Mr. McConnell for failing to corral the necessary 51 votes to keep the repeal effort alive.Yet by antagonizing Mr. McConnell, the president’s often inscrutable Senate partner in conservative policy making, Mr. Trump risks upending an already charged relationship with lawmakers who have joined him in this shotgun marriage of unified Republican government.Mr. McConnell’s team sought to play down any animosity, noting that he also hopes to proceed on a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, despite the setbacks.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.
