As setbacks pile up, Trump's tax plans could also be in jeopardy

It includes a proposal to borrow $1.3 billion against Pennsylvania's annual share of the 1998 multistate settlement with tobacco companies, an approach rejected by their GOP counterparts in the House just last week.

He also reiterated White House critiques of the Congressional Budget Office.

Senate Democrats and independents said Tuesday that upcoming legislation to rewrite the nation's tax code should ensure the middle class doesn't pay more and the "top 1 percent" doesn't pay less.

House and Senate Republicans and the White House last week released a vaguely worded joint statement that called for legislating tax bills under "regular order", and abandoned a House proposal for a controversial border adjustment tax, which had divided the party for months. "They're good. They invite us to work across the aisle".

If the GOP divisions persist, McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., might have to decide whether to have votes on legislation opposed by substantial numbers of Republicans.

But how the rich are taxed could be the biggest source of contention.

"That would be a mistake", Flake said.

Trump has called those payments bailouts for insurers. "The question is: Will the leadership, including the White House, see that unless you find some common ground here you're going down the same route you did on health care?" Representative Devin Nunes of California, a Ryan ally and member of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, said he's "absolutely" satisfied with the Big Six's progress. John Kennedy, R-La. "In the meantime, I think it's very important not to see any Americans get hurt".

"Right now, there's just a lot more education that needs to occur", Nunes said in an interview.

Should Trump be interested in such an unorthodox tactic, he may get the chance soon.

But it also means that there is less flexibility for Mr. Trump and his Republican allies to manoeuvre on his next priority, overhauling the American tax system.

On the corporate rate, a key concern for markets, the Senate Finance Committee chairman said: "The president said he wants to get it down to 15 percent".

"Distance is a tax reform's best friend". If people are suffering, and they are, and they will continue to suffer because we have not repealed or replaced Obamacare, why shouldn't insurance companies similarly suffer? They will be joined by scores of other lobby, trade and think-tank groups, all of whom are experienced veterans of the Washington power game. Both Obama and Trump have continued making the payments as the case has dragged on.

Mr. Trump has been willing to return to health-care even when it seemed dead the first time. So there may be room for some agreement with Democrats on that front.

Trump will not call for raising effective tax rates on the wealthiest Americans, but will instead seek to eliminate most deductions other than for mortgage interest and charitable donations. However, Republicans already had enough Republicans in the Senate to overhaul the law - but Sen. So far House members seem more committed to permanence, while some Republican senators seem open to temporary changes. "That has not changed".
