Trump is scheduled to discuss pitch on Capitol Hill, after returning from his trip to Asia, which is revealed, or from a White house official who was not authorized to publicly the President’s schedule and spoke on condition of anonymity.

As a newcomer needed relief for the middle class, the house and Senate bills would cut corporate taxes, double the standard deduction, the majority of Americans, and limit or remove completely the Federal deduction for state and local property, income and sales taxes. Republican leaders in Congress view the passage of the first major tax conversion in 30 years than it is to keep is essential for the GOP its majorities in the elections next year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., asked whether the Senate might be recognized to bring the proposal to repeal the estate tax deduction, higher taxes for some middle-class Americans, there would be some taxpayers who end up paying with higher taxes.

“Any way you cut it, there is a possibility that some taxpayers would get a higher rate,” McConnell told reporters after a forum in Louisville, Kentucky, with local entrepreneurs and employees. “You can not craft every tax-invoice, which guarantees that every single taxpayer in America will break, a tax. What I will tell you, is would the vast majority of taxpayers in each bracket, the exemption.”

In the meantime, Trump tweeted during the debate Monday by urging the Republican leader to be more aggressive in the tax legislation. He called for steep tax cuts for wealthy Americans, and the addition of a controversial health care to the already complex mix.

At the same time, an impartial analysis of the Senate version of the tax overhaul legislation showed that it was actually an increase in the taxes for some of the 13.8 million middle-income American households.

The evaluation by the Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation arose when the Senate tax-writing committee in the discussion and elaboration of the action began.

With the few votes left to close the Republican leaders hope for tax overhaul from Christmas and send the legislation to the trump for his signature.

The key House leader on the effort, Rep. Kevin Brady, said he is “very confident” that the Republicans “have the votes to pass” the measure this week.

Brady, Chairman of the house ways and means Committee, said he expected that major changes to the bill, since it’s a final vote in the house. Still, he said, Trump calling for the removal of the requirement to have health insurance, which remains as part of the tax agreement, “under consideration.”

Trump and the Republicans have promoted to create the legislation, the boost as a boon for the middle class, the tax burden of the people with moderate income and the economy, new jobs.

“This law is a massive tax cut for the rich. … This is a great giveaway for businesses,” Sen. Orrin Hatch, the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, insisted that since the panel had its first day of debate in the Senate.

The overhaul of urgently needed tax is said to bring “relief for American workers and families,” the Utah Republican.

Luke belittles the analysis of the Congress experts will show tax increases in 2019, for 13.8 million households with an income of less than $200,000 a year. The group, about 10 percent of all U.S. taxpayers, would be tax increases of $100 to $500, and it would be bigger increases for some, especially those who earn between $75,000 and $200,000.

Luke said: “a relatively small minority of taxpayers, a slight increase in their taxes could see.”

The Committee’s senior Democrat, Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, said that the legislation has “donor a massive handout to multi-national companies and a Paradise for tax evaders and strong political.”

The Congress-analysts, the increases of a similar magnitude to the tax under the house bill.

Neither bill includes a repeal of the so-called individual mandate in Obama’s Affordable Care Act, is the requirement that Americans obtain health insurance or face a penalty. Several top Republicans have warned that including the provision, as Trump wants, to the opposition and make the passage harder.

Among the biggest differences in the two bills: the house bill allows the homeowner to deduct up to $10,000 in property taxes while the Senate proposal, the entire deduction. Both versions would eliminate tax deductions for state and local income taxes and revenue.
