On Friday, House Republicans will vote on a budget resolution, which they hope will get President Donald Trump to agree to pay for a $2.5 trillion tax cut for corporations and the wealthiest Americans.
It’s the first time the House has voted on a $1.9 trillion tax plan since 2010.
House Republicans are hoping to have the tax bill passed by the end of the week.
But as we’ve noted, it’s not clear how they’re going to pay, and the Trump administration is not going to agree.
As a result, the Republican Party is in a bind.
As I’ve written before, the GOP needs to fix their tax policy.
It doesn’t have to change its core principles.
They can change the tax code to make it more progressive.
It can get rid of loopholes that make it easier for wealthy individuals to pay lower taxes than their secretaries.
It could lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, and it could increase the child tax credit.
They could also eliminate the estate tax, which is used by the top 1 percent to pay a lower estate tax.
They don’t have a good track record on these things.
And they’re not going away.
It was one of the biggest surprises of the midterm elections.
They had the most unpopular president in history.
They have the least popular party in the country.
And there is no way to fix them.
So instead, they’re setting their sights on the next election.
As the House is voting, here’s a look at the four biggest issues that will determine their party’s prospects in 2018.
The tax plan’s revenue sources The GOP tax plan would raise revenue by eliminating tax breaks for businesses and the wealthy, as well as the deduction for state and local taxes.
The House would also repeal the estate and gift tax, and eliminate a number of other deductions, such as state and municipal income taxes.
As such, the tax plan is projected to raise $1 trillion over the next decade.
That would be roughly $200 billion less than what Trump promised during the campaign.
And it would also be more than $400 billion less in revenue over the same period.
But Republicans don’t expect the plan to be very popular.
“It is a huge tax cut, and we’re talking about tens of trillions of dollars,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) told reporters in December.
“But I think it will be unpopular.
I think that it will do a lot of damage to our economy.
We’re going after people who are the poorest Americans.”
The Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan think tank, estimates that the tax cuts in the House tax plan will cost $1,700 for every American.
That means they would cost roughly $1 billion more for every family in 2020 than they would have been if the bill had remained unchanged.
And even if they did grow tax-free, the cuts would only bring in $2,000 in federal revenue over 10 years.
The corporate tax code Republicans say they want to change the corporate income tax rate to 15 percent.
But their plan includes several other changes.
In addition to eliminating the corporate rate, the bill would cut the corporate payroll tax rate by half, from 35 to 15%, as well.
Republicans would also lower the maximum corporate rate from 25 percent to 15% and increase the standard deduction from $12,000 to $24,000.
It would also make the current corporate rate $12.50 instead of $24.
But the GOP plan does not include a way to repeal the alternative minimum tax, a tax that has helped make the top 0.1 percent of taxpayers more than twice as wealthy as the bottom 99 percent.
It also doesn’t include a corporate rate cut.
The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the bill could cost $600 billion in lost revenue over a decade, according to the Washington Post.
The child tax break Republicans say the tax cut will help pay for education.
But that’s not true.
As Vox’s Dylan Matthews noted, the plan would make the child credit, which was designed to help parents in low-income families pay for college, refundable.
Instead, the money would be used to pay the cost of child care for the poorest American children.
In reality, the child care tax credit helps poor children who don’t need it to pay tuition at a public school, but that’s a far cry from creating an education system that is truly free for everyone.
The student loan forgiveness program Republicans say it will help low- and middle-income students who can’t afford to pay their own college tuition.
The plan would eliminate the student loan interest deduction, which has helped the top 10 percent of earners pay for at least 60 percent of their student loans.
It has also led to a sharp rise in student debt, and even led to the closure of the National Student Loan Assistance Program, which helps people with low-interest loans
