Tax bill have to demonstrate that Trump learned to adopt laws that in 2017?

The meeting follows the first major legislative success for the trump administration and the Republicans in Congress passed the $1.5 trillion tax plan this month declined, that the individual tax rates for the middle class, and removed taxes on the company.

It will leave expected, that the reform of the health system dominate the talks in January, when the passed a tax cut bill suspended the requirement, as part of Obamacare that all Americans purchase to pay health insurance or pay a fine, while the other functions of the health care law is still in place.

Republicans tried to repeal Obamacare in this year’s twice – both times are too short to pass with the votes in Congress, the laws and the breaking of the promise of a swift repeal, as soon as the White house is occupied by a Republican.

Already juggling with a delicate majority in the Senate, the Republicans were met, efforts to repeal the law, unanimous opposition from the Democrats. But the President expects both sides to work on the course “finally together”, the creation of a new health care plan.

“Based on the fact that the very unfair and unpopular Individual mandate has been terminated, as part of our Tax Cut Bill, which essentially eliminated (over time) ObamaCare, the Democrats & Republicans come together eventually and develop a great new health care plan!” Trump tweeted earlier this week.

Other possible ideas for the year 2018 to include an infrastructure bill in the modernisation of dilapidated roads, bridges and other means of transport. The White house allegedly said Trump is planning to release its infrastructure in January.

Ryan, meanwhile, could raise the question, overhaul Medicaid and Medicare and other social benefits program, even though McConnell was skeptical of such reforms, unless you have the support of the Democrats. Trump has indicated that he is open to the use of the “welfare reform” next year as a “people system.”

But as the White house and Republican congressional leaders for action in the year 2018, agenda, Congress, in front of a residue from 2017.

By the end of January, the Congress the agreement on a government funding bill to avoid a partial government shutdown. The politicians in Washington have to agree to send additional aid to assist the hurricane victims, the repeal of the “debt brake”, the revival of the children’s health insurance program, and the drafting of legislation for the so-called “dreamers” who were brought to the country illegally as children.
