Rep. Dave Brat: Tax reform bill ” is a done deal
The house freedom Caucus member calls possible GOP deal with expenditure.
Republicans on Capitol Hill said Wednesday that the tax debt is eliminating negotiated probably, the ObamaCare mandate, reports said on Wednesday.
The repeal of Obamacare, to purchase individual mandate for insurance — a centerpiece of the Democrats, ” the greatest achievement of a generation-is estimated to provide reductions for $ 300 billion to pay for tax.
Republic Rob Woodall, R-Ga., compared to The New York Times that the mandate was a “bad idea to begin with.”
We do something that is supposed to be good for you. But you tell us by the millions, how much you don’t like the mandate,” he said.
The tax overhaul, the GOP-controlled Congress, the best opportunity for a policy victory this year, and looming large in the 2018 congressional elections.
