House GOP delays tax overhaul plan
WASHINGTON - House Republicans are delaying their rollout of a tax plan until Thursday amid a struggle to finalize details.
That's the word from a senior GOP aide late Tuesday night. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the individual was not allowed to publicly discuss the schedule.
The tax-writing Ways and Means Committee was working throughout the day and evening to produce a sweeping plan, the first overhaul of the nation's tax code in three decades.
Although they have settled on some details - such as a cut in the corporate tax rate and maintaining the top personal income tax rate for the wealthy - other elements still have to be resolved.
President Donald Trump has intensified his lobbying for the tax overhaul plan.
