Republicans Raise The Curtain On Big New Tax Plan, AU Releases Surveillance Image Of Potential Flier Suspect

Republicans Raise The Curtain On Big New Tax Plan

Republicans are raising the curtain on their big new tax plan today. If it passes, it would be the most comprehensive overhaul of the U.S. tax code in more than 30-years. The proposal would lower the corporate tax rate from 35-percent to 20-percent. Republicans say there will be notable tax cuts for individuals, though Democrats call it a giveaway to the wealthy. The GOP plan eliminates most itemized deductions, except for charitable donations and the popular home mortgage interest deduction. Congressional Republican leaders will talk about the proposal in a news briefing today. President Trump will tout the plan during a speech in Indianapolis this afternoon.
