More tax cuts could be on the way. At a White House meeting, House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady said the House could vote on another tax cut bill in September.
We anticipate the House voting on this in September and the Senate setting a timetable as well,” Brady said in remarks from the White House, where he and other GOP members of the committee met with President Trump.
A September vote would allow the House to take up the tax package just weeks before the midterm elections.
Republicans hope to use a tax vote to help their members, and many of the Republicans attending the event at the White House face competitive races this fall….
The focus of the tax package is expected to be a permanent extension of the tax cuts for individuals that were a part of the tax law Trump signed in December. Brady said that he thinks it’s important to cement the tax cuts so that Democrats can’t reverse the benefits for middle-class taxpayers in the future.
